I have given up hope on finding him unless I happen to stumble upon him later. We searched 350 acres to no avail. Watched and listened for coyotes and crows without any luck. It's time to move on, but I am disappointed with myself for not making a shot that put him down and not being able to recover him. I failed my responsibility as a hunter.

Sorry to hear about this and I bet the story isn't over yet. You and I have heard it before that this sort of thing happens when you hunt, it has for hundreds of thousands of years and will in the future. learn from it and go kill another trophy size buck.
