Default Hanging up the bow for good

Im thinking of giving up the bow after wounding a buck on thursday. Im so sick, and pissed at myself that this was the final straw. The shot seemed good at first, then I saw a spot on the deer high on the opposite shoulder. I waited over an hour to start tracking, found decent blood with air bubbles in it and then it dried up after 200 yards or so in a field. Came back the next morning to grid search the field and found my buck...slipping away through the valley. He wasnt limping or dragging a leg and he didnt have my arrow in his side anymore, but I could see matted hair and dried blood on the opposite shoulder. I grabbed my gear and tired to cut him off to finish the deal but with no luck. I feel horrible and needed to rant.
