Arrowed a deer. Waited 2 hrs to go in. Tracked blood for 300 yds. Bumped it about 60 yds in front of us. She's still alive. Going back tomorrow morning. First time in this situation. It sucks. Can't sleep.
Isn't that the worst feeling. My son who is a great shot took a shot on a great mature ten pointer. The buck just casually walk off around a bend. We waited 30 minutes then went down. Only to find green splatters on the ground. We backed out and waited the longest and most excruciating 5 hours ever. Only to find him 5 yards from where we lost sight of him. It was a great ending but all the not knowing really wears you down. He put the shot right where you wanted it but didn't take into consideration the angle. Congrats on recovering your doe.
