    Bingo. Folks think they shoot between lungs and spine…isn’t possible. Spine dips pretty low at base of neck before coming back up. Most folks hit a bit more forward than they think and go over spine.

    That said, the mucous consistency makes me think lungs. High double lung would have him on the ground pretty quickly.
    (Edit…after actually reading this entire thread, I’m not so sure about the previous statement anymore).
    I one lunged a deer in Ohio that bled snotty, clotty bright red like that. Found a spot where it looked like he lost half a damn lung. Never found the deer. If he shot at a pretty steep angle…either from way up high or if the deer was just really close or both…and entrance was high, he likely got that offside lung.

    If that is the case, the deer may die; he may not. They will clot off fairly quickly, and lungs have an auto-shunting ability to l route bloodflow away from injured areas. He will die if the air that is going in the lung and out the damaged area gets trapped between the lung and the chest wall…it’ll collapse the lungs and kill Him. If that air escapes the chest cavity through the entry or exit hole long enough for that lung area to clot off/seal, he will likely live. One lung shots freaking suuuuck!

    Keep looking. Good luck.

    There was a time between the excitement of first light/legal and the first wave of ducks we tried to coax in that I looked to the heavens and talked to Tripp; I donít think God lets conversations from earth taint the wonder that His children are experiencing in Heaven, but just in case, I had my say.

    See. This is why I’m going for 100% ham shots this year. Shoot him in the ham, go have a bite to eat, come back in an hour and retrieve the very dead deer less than 100 yards from where you shot him. You’ll have a bit of bloodshot ham to add to the hamburger pile, but you will have the deer. And no, you don’t have to hit femoral artery for a ham shot to kill the piss out of a deer.

    I say this every year, then I shoot for the classic lung shot and eventually regret it.

    Is that the entry or exit hole? Were you elevated? Good to see heís alive and well.

    i think every deer that bleeds is dead until proven otherwise.....

    believe it or not, there are 3 or 4 non-family members on this planet that like me (aka: put up with me)
    One shot a buck friday and called me. I ran home and got my dog and went to his place. we looked for 3 or 4 hours. in waist high grass and knee deep water through a swamp in his back 40. my boykin followed that daggum trail well until we were in the middle of that wet patch. we felt like that deer had made it to the other side mainly bc our human eyes thought it was the way out. Well, we never found blood on the other side. my guess is that deer stayed in that swampy area and curled up somewhere. or, of course, he is alive and I lost sleep for no reason, wondering where that SOB could've been hiding.

    deer are tough but i'm still gonna think they're dead if they bleed one drop. I've seen some crazy shit in my time. deer that didnt bleed to ones that looked like the gushed a 5 gal bucket and we bumped them, alive, 24hours later.
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.

    Next time my 8 year old shoots a buck like that instead of saying "good job buddy that's a giant" I'm gonna say "way to go asshole you killed one of our up and comers". Is that better for you

    Good on yall for sticking with it and I agree. I lost a good buck in late December last year that I think I hit high, the last 6 inches of the arrow broke off and he carried the rest with him. That deer bled more than any deer I've ever seen. We had no problem following the blood and we jumped him 300 yards from where I shot him 3 hours later. I came back the next morning and ended up jumping the buck 18 hours after the shot over 2 miles from where I shot him and had a steady blood trail the whole way. Sometimes they just have the will to live.

    Good gosh your big ole panties have gotten bunched up over nothing. I would never have made a negative comment if the kid killed the buck. He didn't- hence the picture of the live "giant" with a hole above his spine. Until you got him stirred up, the OP appeared to agree with my assessment of the "giant," as he appeared to share my sentiment. Finally, the OP didn't mention in the original post that he was relying upon his son's characterization of the giant in referring to him as a giant, as he was not in position to see said giant. Feel better? I sure do. Moving on now.

    Really VG? You should work on your reading comprehension. ďI thought the same thingĒ means he agreed. Bite me.
