My dad shot a nice buck tonight. It was 100 yards away broadside with his head up. He shot him with a bushmaster 450 and it dropped him in his tracks instantly. The buck laid there and kicked for 5 seconds then got back up and didn’t run full speed but on a trot and looked to be in pain. The deer stopped at 200 yards and he shot again and swore he dropped him but it was low light conditions and wasn’t 100 positive. He walked over to where he thought he would be and no deer. He didn’t look for blood and backed out. Anybody have any thoughts on chances of finding him based on this experience. We are going to wait until morning. Will a deer generally die from most Bodycavity shots even if it’s not in the vitals with a gun? Is a gun wound a lot different than a bow wound? Thanks!
