Another point with today's archery products, vanes,nocks ect, you should be able to see where you hit the animal and know how long to sit and wait. Someone is going to say my bow is too fast to see the arrow flight, possibly, but watch the hide impact location or watch for blood. I try to give well shot deer 20-30 minutes. Liver hit 3 hours,
. If its raining or heavy snow coming down I get on them right away as the trail will be covered or washed away fast. If you jump a wounded deer back off and allow more time don't push it. I lost a buck in Nothern Michigan because I pushed it too soon and once it got back on it's feet it never stopped again. It was -10* and had layed down but I was to eager. A lot of times I'll take my stand down, head back to camp, change into lighter clothes, get some dragging help, then go after it. Be patient! Another good topic ronn.
