I thought I post ed this earlier bu never hit button.  Not expecting much movement today...hope I'm wrong...as always, it  can all change in a second

And then around 9am, a shooter buck showed up, wal1ked 5 yes from tree, I stopped him, shot & he went down wo taking a step.  I hit him my side of spine, 2/3 penetration.  Little high, forgot to aim for the exit,  but he was still very much alive.  I couldnt cock xbow cause he would see me & run away so I sat tight.  After a couple minutes , he dragged himself to thicker cover & settled in.  Too brushy to shoot so i hung my xbow but he saw me do it & got up & limped into a development probably behind some houses now.  Waiting min 2 hrs then going back to rexamine blood to c if i nicked a lung.  

I climbed down real quick & went to my truck & leaned my xbow on my my tire & threw all my stuff in my truck & then drove around to make sure he wasnt dead on someone's lawn.  I didnt see him so I went home to kill some time & noticed a text from landowner telling me I forgot my xbow.  I asked I'm if it was damaged & he said it looked ok.  I went back at 12 & grid searched strip of woods behind the houses for 2 hours.  Nothing & I couldnt blood track on a guys lawn so I licked m wounds & decided to go back out.  I get to my new spot & notice my quiver is messed up.  Ok. .I'll get a new one later.  I get all ready to go & decide to shoot xbow to make sure still on.  1st arrow is broken..ok second is broken & so is 3rd & 4th!! no arrows so now I'm not going hunting but need to verify xbow still on. And I just pu3 more new arrows in my quiver that am!  then I notice rocker damage.  I shoot it & it's still on.  I decide screw this.  I'm going to cheyenne mtn, they probably wont have parts or will find more damage so now I'm buying a new xbow & dropping whatever it takes.  I get there & vinny (great guy) listens to my tale of woe , has the parts, fixes it , I buy new quiver & more arrows & now my only goal is sight in before dark cause no time after work & I'm hunting pa next sat am. Got it on just at dark.  At a bar now.  Striper fishing in am.
