    Giving him till morning

    Gonna be a rough night tonight! Just shot a good whitetail and assumed he was done within 80 yards. Found out he wasn't when I jumped him up about 100 yards from where I shot him. I had given him 2 hours before going after him and I thought the shot looked good. He was laying on a bank bobbing his head and simply got up and wobbly walked off. Backed out for the night and I'll go get him in the morning. Pics will follow tommorrow when I find him (opptomism)!!!!!

    Good luck to you. I have been through that before and it usually doesn't allow for much sleep. Hopefully you will find him not far from where you last seen him.
