This is one of the reasons why I wait about 5 minutes before I leave my stand or tower. It is also good to give yourself time to calm down before you try to decend from an elevated position. This shows why it is recommended that you always approach most downed animals from the rear whenever possible and give them a GOOD poke in the hind quarter with a stick (a shooting stick works well). If you do this and also see their eyes have that glazed look it is most likely the animal has expired.
