Here is the video of the shot.
There was fog on the window so some of the footage is not super clear.

I’ve shot many deer in the same exact spot they go about 50 yards tip over, but I have a feeling that’s not how this ended....

looks kind of a high/back shot but should still be double lung ?

I'd wait 2 hours at least unless of course you see him dead from the arrow location or something.

I killed the deer in my profile last year & hit him in about the same spot. He staggered for about 40 yards & fell over. He shouldn’t go far.

Looks to be slightly quartering away with front leg forward; which is good and makes the shot look even further back/worse than it is. I believe back lung/liver. Look at the arrow and that should give you clear indication of what you hit.

Looks like a liver/diaphragm/lung hit to me.

I would give him some extra time to bleed out, especially if the arrow smells like guts or the blood is dark.

He is dead. My son hit his target buck a little back and knew it right away. Buck went about 125 yards with a blood trail the entire way. Rage Trypan did its job. You will find him.

Front leg is back covering up a good portion of the goodies, leaving little room for error without going through the leg. He was calm feeding, wait til that front leg is stretched forward opening up the entire engine compartment. But I think you have a dead deer, hit several there and found less than 100yrds.

Did you push him or did he go 635 yards on his own?

I waited about 40 minutes and went to the blood. A deer ran off from the area. We came back 2 hours later and trailed him about 400 yds. Never bumped him. Came back next day, resumed trail and he had went off our property. Got permission and a dog about 2pm and found him15 minutes later.

This video was at about 50yds from shot.

Hope you find him Roysmoke!
