Look then look again
 
I was doe hnting tonite and shot one. When I went to where she had been there was no blood, not blood spray behind where she had been standing. We have 2-4 inches of snow. So I decided to walk the direction that she had went, it was about 60 yards before I found any blood, it was a spot no bigger than a quarter, and she was laying about 2ft away. The shot was about as good as it gets as far as shot placement. Just wanted to share that with everybody.

I shot a nice sized doe last weekend with my 16ga using #1 buckshot. She moved as I pulled the trigger I hit her. When I got close I didn't see any blood at all so I flipped her over and found just a little on her head. When she moved she missed the cloud but took 3 pellets to the head and that was it. I guess a 30 caliber headshot is more then enough and non of the meat was damaged.
