I shot the big 9 pointer but I didnt see where it hit him. Got down looked at the arrow and it had somewhat dark red blood on it, but when I started tracking the blood trail is bright red blood. there was a lot of blood to follow at first then it just turned to drops. I waited 45 minutes before tracking but as I was tracking I had a der snort at me and he didnt sound that good so I am assuming it was him so I backed out. please look at the signs and tell what u would do. I will not be able to look after 6:30 am cause of work. I followed trail for about 75 yrds, here are some pics of arrow and blood trail blood trail is really lighter.
