Ok so a buck came in right before dark. Buck fever got the better of me and I shot ANOTHER tree. he jumped back a ways and then came back cautiously. I concentrated on the shot and heard that good thump sound of arrow hitting deer. He ran a short ways, stopped a few seconds and ran again. I have not gone to track but have found the arrow covered in blood and a small amount of light red blood near the arrow. Arrow smells strong like deer and I can't tell if its gut shot or just cause he stank from the rut. Not much blood near arrow and I'm gonna wait. How long should I sit here? I shot him at 5pm

Since its already dark, you might as well give it 2 hours just to be on the safe side.

I am no expert on this, but I would not think your arrow would stink from him being rutted up, as it passed through him.

Never mind I found him. Stumbled on good blood so I tracked and he's down.

Thanks all. Been lucky this year

Liver shot. Glad he went down as quick as he did. I need to check my bow or arrows, I think the arrows haven't been flying well. It could have been my fault but I think I've noticed practice shots also fly funny and the arrow goes in on an angle. Maybe the spine is wrong. But it was almost a 25 yard shot which stretches my comfortable range and it still killed him. And after I shot a tree in front of him on the first try. I am lucky
