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
Haven't been this excited about deer season

...since last deer season
