    Four hours is the minimum in my opinion for deer shot back. Still use the sign to determine next steps. If your arrow smells foul, you need to wait much longer. Time is your friend, despite your anxiousness to get started. Trust me, I just recovered a deer yesterday that was still alive 17 hours after the shot.

    Well, I had to go to my FIFTH spot to find a location without a truck already there. Oi vey. Aren't these guys supposed to be on quarantine or something. Lmao. I had seen ZERO deer hunters this year and I've been out a ton. Damned nice weather.

    Beautiful morning. Ideal in every way.

    Got to the property at 8. Glassed for 30 minutes as I looked for sign. Found some rubs, set up a camera, then made it into my stand. Rattled and grunted, and 20 minutes later this guy feeds his way to my stand. He catches my wind and runs 30 yards but I give a mouth call to get him to stop.

    He steps from behind a tree and is broadside at 30. I let it fly. He bucks but only takes a couple steps before walking away. I thought I missed but as I watch through my binos, I see him take wonky step and knew I got him. The shot was a little far back but after another 10 steps or so, I see him stumble and topple over. He didn't go 20 (to quote Rut Daniels).
