At times like these, I sneak out and head back to camp to erase the temptation to push a mortally wounded deer. Take your time and go back and collect him later. Good luck!!

If he has laid down 3 times within sight, he won't go far. Just give him a few hours and good luck.

At the house working on posting the shot vid. He went down right after the shot then got up. Laid down in front of me for a while too. I'll get the vid up ASAP.

If you think it was a single lung, I would give him at least 4 hours from the time you shot. I watched a guy make a single lung shot several years back. We went back after 2 hours and found where he had bedded. There was wet blood everywhere and pushed him another 200 yards and he went on the neighbors property. Got permission the next morning to cross and found him. I still kick myself for not waiting longer. The coyotes worked him over pretty good that night.

Happened to me on a doe last year...quartering away and got liver and one lung. The more time you can give it the better. I would wait at least 4 hours. You will find him.

Looking at pic on phone, due to leg and body position I'm saying your shot is a little back. Probably a single lung and maybe liver as well. Certainly ain't a double lung or he wouldn't have got up the first time. I'd go back no sooner than 4hrs and have tracking dogs on standby if not recovered in 150-200yrds

Just my oppinion

Just watched the video. You can see the broadhead almost sticking out of the other shoulder. And when he went down he went down pretty hard. What a strong critter. I have to think you killed him with that shot. He will be dead within a couple hours. No way he lives through that.

Looks a little forwards for that angle! Probably got the front part of right lung and missed the other one! Give him some time and you will find him! Also be ready for a follow up shot if needed! Good luck on the recovery!
