I just hope the deer survived. Thanks for all of the responses.

this sounds weird,,, but make sure you check IN the pond too... sometimes when they are hit, they try to get that burn away by getting in something wet or cold. I've seen where deer have jumped into creeks (once they settled down) and ended up expiring there.

Try the flag thing!
