Where was the shot at? Is there any blood in the immediate area?

I typically give them half an hour minimum if I feel it’s a good shot.

In for pics.

I would wait for atleast 30 min or longer. It all depends on the shot and if you heard him crash.

I usually get out of the stand within 5 minutes or so. If you make a good shot, deer is dead within seconds. If it’s a marginal shot, I’ll back out.

The longer the better if you wait. Give us the pic of the arrow and we will be able to tell you if you screwed the pooch or not.

30 min, go look where he was shot. No blood, good blood, marginal blood. Options at that point depend on these

Did you hear him crash after the shot? Walk slowly in the direction he went and see if you find a blood trail. How did he react when the arrow hit him?

Calm down, slow your roll and start looking for blood immediately from impact if spotty give it time. You can usually tell if a deer isnít going to go far 20 yards into the track.

Blood looks good. I have a 30 yd rule. If I dont find blood of some kind, even a spot or two, in 30 yds so I can start a track then I back out and give it a couple of hours. Good luck!

Do you have any idea where you hit him? That's a big part. I might have missed that above. But the arrow shaft area looks decent.


If there is nothing there right at the shot or in the general vicinity, I'd walk to the side a good ways from his possible route so as not to step on any sign and go to the place you last saw him running off. It might start out sparse then blow out like a faucet.... if nothing there i'd be tempted to wait. Pushing a deer can be expensive...

This is the answer. Give it time and get help with tracking and looking for blood. Patience and not jumping him is your best bet.

Good luck on the trail. Arrow looks good. Just be easy and be prepared for the buck to run to water and or circle back. Last year buddy shot a buck clipped in the lungs he came back 30 mins later. I would take my time. In for the recovery
