problem is the arrow lost so much energy when it broke the front leg that it didn't exit leaving a lower blood channel. The shot doesn't sound to have been perfect but I agree the deer is dead and you can probably find him. I would encourage you to go back in and hopefully remove the rack and tag it. I have posted here before that the best shot is 3-4" behind the shoulder broadside high/low double lung shot. Hunters need to wait for the best shot or pass. Good luck in finding the buck and let us know how it all ended.

I think HM and all the other guys on here would agree that deer can go A LONG, LONG way injured if they want to. Just because he only had use of 3 legs doesn't mean he couldn't make a clean get-away. But I think it's dead as well. You're going to have to expand your search area.

Got any buddies who have search dogs?? If so, check your state's laws and track the deer. In Missouri, you can only use dogs to track wounded deer if it's a last-resort type of deal.

If you got water look there, I found a deer in the middle of a pond, and numerous times in a creek!
