Default 9 pointer I got Sunday morning. First buck bow kill updated story



Well heres the story finally. I get in my stand at about 5:15 am. 6:41 was legal shooting time inIndiana. Its just starting to get light enough and I can see the outline of a deer about 50 yards away. He starts walking towards me and get 35 yards away straight towards me. I standing there hoping for him to turn broadside when whats he do? He does me a favor and turns. I was already drawn so all that was left was to let the arrow fly. So I let it fly but it's not light enough for me to see the arrow hit. He jumped the string when I shot but it sounded like it hit the shoulder blade. He turned and bolted 70 yards to the woods. (I was hunting over a cut down corn field.) He looked like he was hit but I wasn't for sure. When he hit the wood line it sounded like he might have hit a tree with the arrowsticking out of him. I din't hear him go down but it sounded like he was hitting limbs going through the woods. I waited about an hour since I wasn't sure of the hit. I got out of the stand and went down where i shot at him and I couldn't find a single drop of blood. I was thinking surly I didn't miss him. I heard a thund. then I was thinking maybe the arrow hit a cornstalk. I started walking towards where he went into the woods not finding a drop of blood anywhere. I get to the woods still no blood look inside of the woods and I see my arrow had been broken off just about half of the arrow was still in him. I took a quick look in the woods and I didn't see a deer laying down so i back out and decided to wait a little longer back in my stand. I waited another hour and called my buddy that was hunting on the other side of the property and we decidedto go ahead and look for him. We never did find a blood trail so I was getting pretty discusted with the whole situation. I was just about to give it up and I told my buddy the last thing I knew to do was to go down bye the creek bottoms and see if he might have tried to go to the water source. We got down by the creek and there he was. About 250 yards from where i shot him. He had been dead awhile because rigor had already set in. The arrow ended up being a little high and to the back. When i field dressed him the back of 1 of his lungs had been hit and the arrow was angled down from the top a little bit. All the blood was inside his chest cavity. No exit wound so therefor no blood. Except in the spot where he finally died.
