    Just had a 6 pt come by at 20 yards and walk out to 30 yards and bed down. Now this is going to make really hard to look around. He is looking right at me!

    You probably hit the offside shoulder or leg which is fine. How much penetration?

    What did it when you shot? Mule kick? Run away or walk?

    Heyy Chuckles congrats on getting a shot off! That adrenaline rush and challenge is why we all bowhunt! As was already stated fawns are not as strong as the mature deer and tend to die easily. So dont get discouraged and definitely give it some time before you get down to track it and you should be able to recover it! Good luck
