Missed a buck tonight, have a quick question

Well tonight I didnt see any deer from my stand but I walk through a field to get to my truck. I was walking in the woods about to step into the field when I see a nice size buck standing on the edge of the field. I draw on him and figure 35 yards. I hit my release and the arrow goes right underneath. It turned out to be about 41 yards. Anyway he ran off but he didnt know where the shot came from so I was wondering how long should I stay away from the area to let it cool down? Also do you think he will come back soon? Thanks.

If he didn't see you you should be fine to get right back in there. Question though, how dark was it? I have walked out a little early myself to try and catch a nice buck in the field but I never shoot if it is too dark.
It wasnt that dark in the field, it was just dark in the woods. It gets dark about 10-15 minutes earlier in the woods than it does out in the field so it was too dark to shoot anymore in the woods but when I saw him in the field there was probably still 10 minutes of daylight left so I could see him fine its just that he couldnt see me because I was still in the woods.
