Hunt Story

I went for an evening hunt and sat in the ground blind first time I had hunted there this year. I had a couple does at the feeder, and it was getting low shooting light. Then I heard something and the buck came downwind on trail behind the blind and came out 15 yards made a loop and turned broadside and a shot him at 30 yards. Waited about 1.5 hours and went to look for him. Found the arrow covered in blood and started following a good blood trial. Went about 60 yards to a small creek and found some blood on other side and decided to back out and look for him in the morning because I thought I had shot him a little back and we don't want to jump and push him. Returned the next morning and it had rained over night and washed away blood trail. So we went to last spot we found blood and followed the deer trail about 60 more yards and we found him.
