Liver shot deer give 3 to 6 hours
Gut shot deer give 6 to 12 hours.
We have tracked tons of gut shot deer and have found some alive after over 12 hours.
Yeah, I like the rifle idea. I’ve never seen this buck before, but I may have got a trail cam pic of him minutes before the shot. If so, I’ll grab the card on the way out and post a pic
Do you come up to Nky or know anyone that does just in case? Would you wait till morning if I shot him at 10:00 am? I’m leaning towards waiting till morning
Wait till morning. Your blood trail is gone anyway after this rain we have had all day. I gut shot a doe one evening with a bow and found it the next morning still alive. Definatly take a gun with you.
Fortunately no rain yet here and 50% chance late tonight
Obviously you can do whatever you want. You know what happened and how the deer reacted but keep this in mind, your arrow may have hit lung and liver but it went through the gut last so that's what will show on the arrow. Only you know where the entry point was.
Not to mention deer can live for weeks with a double lung hit. Lol. Couldn’t resist.
That’s the tricky part, it entered about where I would say the diaphragm is near the spine at a sharp angle down and to the bottom of its gut. I’d say it’s 50/50 if it cut the diaphragm or not. Obviously not the best shot this time, but it is what it is at this point. Bad thing is I don’t know what it is yet
If you have a shotgun buy some slugs and take it.
Only if shot with a rage.
Got both, that sounds like a plan
Did you find much blood when you retrieved your arrows? I mean did you find a pool where he stopped and gave you a second shot?
You.leave a deer over nite in my neck of the woods and there wont be much left by daylight. Thanks to the yotes. I would have to go look while there was still light. Hopefully you can stay down wind of the trail and takr a gun if you see him shoot him again. But if your just antler hunting i guess it would be ok to wait till morning. I would for sure go look now if i had blood on the ground and rain coming in.
I shot a good buck few years ago arrow hit small limb and deflected back into guts. Blood was for maybe 30yds. Not much blood in my that distance. Gave him plenty of time before tracking. Found him 3 days later over 300yds away in some thick stuff. Good luck
