Thoughts on tracking

Greetings BGH community, 

I would like a few people to weigh in on this. I took a shot with my crossbow on a doe earlier today and I couldn not find any hair indicating a hit what so ever. I heard the arrow hit some corn stalks which I think would indicate I missed as she was to the right of the stalks. I did find one drop of blood about 10 yards from what I thought was the impact point but I attempted to track the deer finding no other sign. I could not find my arrow. I didn't see any other blood at all! Is it possible I missed the deer and the blood was coincedental? or did I hit the deer and it just didn't leave a blood trail... I feel sick having possibly hit a deer and can't find it :/ can someone put my mind at ease? or tell me to go look harder? any thoughts?

If you found blood then you

If you found blood then you hit it.  It may of been a glancing hit or one through some muscle for it not to bleed very much. 

With that little blood loss I wouldn't worry about it.
