Moving a point by distance and bearing

I have a series of points along a transect that need to be projected various distances and directions from where the point was taken, each point being different.

 

Real life example is when conducting deer surveys for distance sampling, a transect is driven and once a deer or group of deer is observed, a waypoint is taken, a laser rangefinder is used to measure distance, and a bearing is taken to get an exact location.  How can these points be moved to show the location of the animal without creating new points if possible?

 

Please, no coding answers.
