Couple of things.....
1. Be THANKFUL that it was a clean miss, and not a bad hit.
2. JMO, and I wasn't there, but based on some of the things you said.....33 yards....."maybe" too dark to shoot.....think about this:
33 yards under hunting conditions, in the woods, in marginal shooting light, just may be too far. What you are "comfortable" with under practice or 3-D shoot conditions many times must be reduced by HALF for field conditions under good light situations. Also, at 33 yards, in the woods, in low light conditions, you also would have a hard time telling at just what ANGLE that deer was to you. It'd be very easy in those circumstances to misjudge and take a shot at a deer that's in fact quartering TO you, and you wind up with a bad hit. How many times have you heard someone say, "I saw that arrow go RIGHT IN the spot behind the front leg, but we tracked that deer for 1 mile and it never did stop." Well...it may have gone in at that point, but if the shot ANGLE was off, then the vitals were all or partially missed. A double lung shot deer CANNOT go more than a couple hundred yards at most, and certainly not a mile.
3. Deer Was On Alert: Combine the above with the "jump string" possibility. There is no bow made that is faster than the speed of sound. The technology still has around 900 FPS to make up before they get close to that. I once had a small buck duck an arrow at 15 yards from a treestand, that I fortunately missed clean. They don't always do this, but believe me they CAN and they WILL. This is the main reason why I don't like a bowshot at an alert animal. I prefer them feeding, or otherwise occupied, even to the point of being in the midst of taking a step forward with the near side front leg. If they are moving a part of their body...front leg, head/neck, rear leg to scratch, etc., that gives you a big advantage in lessening the odds of a string jump. This is also why I prefer not to use calls for bowhunting, because just by the fact that they respond to the call puts them on alert, AND they WILL BE LOOKING FOR THE SOURCE OF THE SOUND.....YOU!!! Deer seem to have a knack for knowing RIGHT where a sound comes from, and will many times be looking straight at you even though they came from 100 yards away or more.
Anyway, thus goes the hunt. ALL of us have done similar things in the past, that's how you learn. It's great that you have a place like this to come to and get different opinions about what to do. Just leran from this experience, and keep at it! Best of luck........
