It seems to me that 6" of penetration is not great, but may be enough to kill that deer. Could you not follow the tracks?? Did the arrow hit high in the shoulder or low? Did you get any bubbles in the blood you did find? If you see any bubbles at all you can be fairly sure it is down. Find/Follow tracks.
