I just started bowhunting this year and after this evening Im about ready to give it up. Ive practiced alot and I have a good bow. I shot under a few does early on and went out and got a rangefinder and after alot of practice I finally decided I was ready and wouldnt take a shot again unless I was sure of it. Well this evening I grunted in a very nice buck and he stopped broadside at 30 yards. When I released everything felt good, but I hit him in the neck. Im not sure if I hit something (overhanging branch)when I released, if he somehow stepped back to turn or if I looked when I hit the release, but I do know Im sick at my stomach right now. I watched him walk about 150 yards with the arrow sticking out both sides of his neck and then jump a fence like nothing had happened. I gave it about 45 minutes and slid over to where he crossed the fence. I found blood where I hit him and followed it to the fence and over it, but it wasnt alot and was very hard to follow. The fence is about 75 yards from a spring creek and I lost blood halfway to it. He didnt go all the way to the creek but was kind of quartering to it. From what I can tell he never tried to lay down and hit the first trail leading away from where he was shot. Ill be out first thing in the morning and plan on spending all day looking for him. From the way he was acting Im thinking there maybe a chance he could make it, but Im just not sure right now. Well thats it. Feel free to flame away if you feel the need. I know Im kicking myself pretty hard right now.
