If I am certain of a good hit, I wouldn’t wait at all to follow up. Doubly so if it is hot out.

How did it turn out?

Killed over 30 whitetail with the bow. Doesn’t hurt to wait 1/2-1 hour but on a double lung shot a deer will be down and out in a matter of minutes. Usually they run full speed until they just tip over.

Sorry for some of the poor post to your thread. For most of us the idea of a July archery deer hunt is strange at best. Learn something new every day I suppose. Personally I Prefer to archery Hunt in November. Sure there must be a good reason why July, Though other than this is California I am at a loss why 65,000 Archery tags may be available as early as July 9th.

Unless I seen or heard the deer go down, Id have waited 30 minute to an hour. Personally with perfect shot placement, upper lungs just behind the shoulder has resulted in downed deer inside of 8 seconds for me. Then I have hit what I thought was a good lung hit, though it was a bit low and watched the deer expire roughly 45 minutes later.

Most of my whitetails taken with a bow fell over in seconds within sight of me, some even tipped over after a jump up in the air and stood there a few seconds and fell over blood pouring out. If a poor shot was made wait a while but try before the coyotes find them.
Sounds like a good hit though.

I don't even like to hunt deer in October where I live- too warm.
I remember throwing a gut pile inside a yard bag once when daylight got things warming into the 60's. After we finished everything I quickly sealed the bag. Frigging things was absolutely alive with huge flies - like watching Re-animator or something. On the plus side it seemed like we had trapped every last fly in the area and were shed of them for a while.

Hope OP got his deer quickly and cleaned it without spoil.
Lastly- hate poachers for most part. Starved and feeding a family- can give a pass but doubt that is the norm.
As bad as the drought is here I can see taking some might seem humane at this point.

No he didn't recover it. They even brought in a dog but no luck. Told him any dog that was halfway good would of found it even in this heat.

Most deer i thumped in the boiler room ( double lung) died within seconds. Average about 6 second or so.

Ruminants have a well established mediastinum. That is a membrane that divides the lungs.

If you only get one lung it can collapse & clot. The critter can survive with the other good lung. This occurs usually when it’s a straight down shot. The deer is directly below the shooter.

Lots of big talkers on here but yet they can't do a little research before showing their azzes.

Sorry to hear no recovery.

I doubt it was recoverable.

It most likely survived the incident.

If you don't hear/see it crash-30 min minimum. Made that mistake myself more than once. But I tend to be a slow learner

except for the bucks I've seen double lunged that have been alive 3 hours later....

Good question? sounds like someone poached a deer.


Hey Karen - I did a 30 second Google search in his home state and there are archery seasons ongoing currently for anyone who wanted to actually check before calling someone a poacher. So I'm gonna make a wild guess he is legal and wouldn't make a post like this. Get out of your small little bubble.
