That is a fairly steep angle though...arrow could\'ve deflected down after hitting the ribs instead of exiting through the chest and missing the vitals. ARVelocity, it sounds like you hit your deer a little far back and is probably a gut shot. I have since then gone back to hunt and had a chance to study the situation more and think that I got some of that no mans land myself. Found my arrow with out a trace on it, but i have a blood trail. By using this method we have found numerous deer we had lost the trail of but picked it up again after some distance.

That or you may have hit the deer too high and hit that no mans land above the vitals but below the spine. Need to cut a little bit more yardage on the next one. :(Russell, tough luck, I feel like something like that is bound to happen at some point if you bow hunt unfortunately. Even a well hit deer may not leave any blood for 50-60 yards of more especially if it is not a pass through.

If I know I have ABSOLUTELY double lunged him, I still wait about two hours before starting the retrieve -even if I see him go down.

Hey, if he's down, he won't go anywhere, but if he's down and re-grouping, pushing him may really make it difficult. You will lose every other deer taking a risky shot like this. A better decision is to wait until the deer turns broadside.

Targeting these vitals on the deer provides for the greatest margin of errof.

Here is a anatomy diagram showing the internal organs and structure of a whitetail deer.

Remember to bend at the waist so as to not lengthen your draw and make you miss high. The key is give him a couple hours before you begin to 'track', or in some cases, 'push' your deer.

We have a piebald on the farm and would love to see my son or fiance bag this buck, GOOD LUCK MANDI AND BLAIN!!! I'm not saying I'm a stone cold killer but I have a few bow kills under my belt and have had really no trouble in the past shooting through a front shoulder at a deer that was quartering to me. Thx Lost a good doe this morning, and it bothers me to no end.

However, I do have some friends that use expandable broadheads and have trouble shooting through a shoulder. After sunset I went back to the place of impact 3hrs. Two days later I took a shot on a 6pt at 42yrds out...sounded like a miss and sounded like I hit a tree... Anyway, the shot was at 10.5 yards, quartering away, went through the rib cage about the ninth and tenth rib and then out the chest.

Shot placement is essential, shooting a deer in the shoulder no matter what broadhead or what poundage your shooting is a bad idea. It was shagging a doe, didnt have a lot of time and only had small window. She did a couple first bounds then I heard almost coughing or wheezing choking as she was trying to breathe. In heavy wet cover watch for fresh prints in open areas look for kicked up leaves or grass.

Russell, that\'s tough luck, sounds like you made a good shot! I am positive that my arrow followed a straight path, considering it exited the direction it went in. Decided to let it sit and am going back in the morning to look more. It may take some off or little used trails but will come back the same general direction with in 10-20 degrees unless something forces it to change course (people, buildings or preditors).
