    i got to my stand later than wanted (around 5pm) and sure enough spooked a decent buck out from under my tree:doh: and ofcoarse there was a fresh scrape 8 yards from my tree:doh: . but i shook it off and climbed up my tree.the buck didnt run far so i grunted in the direction it headed. about an hour later the same buck apeared 15yards from my stand. i stood and readied myself, it walked directly behind my tree blocking any shot then walked straight away. i drew my bow as it turned broadside at 30yds. and let the arrow fly. i heard a loud smack when the arrow hit the deer and it took off. the shot was a little high but i was cofident. i found half my arrow and no blood on the ground. WTF????????????????:frusty: :frusty: :frusty:

    When did you shoot him? How long did you look? Go to the last place you saw him when he ran off if you can't find any blood where it was standing when you shot.
