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.
