Happened to my buddy last year. Best blood trail I ever seen for over a mile and never found the deer. Our flashlights ended up going dead and we got lost for a long time in the middle of some government woods. Started tracking at 6pm got home at 1 not much fun that night luckily there was a little moonlight.

no matter what always sit there for a min of half hr. even if you see the deer laying there. some times they don't know what happened and will lay down but one sight or scent of a human and the chase is on.

the white hair is a clue,,,if you hit her low and she some how broke the arrow...the stomach stuff can plug the hole fast to stop the trail ..next time be patience place your shot ..and give it time to die

I once tracked a doe for 1 1/2 mile. A few other guys joined us and in a patch of tall grass she had tunnelled under some. Another time a searched the same patch of brush several times before I found the deer that crawled so close to a log, it was almost under it. it happens sometimes that you can't find them. They are real good at hiding.

On a marginal hit, unless its raining give the deer a couple of hours before looking for it. Just mark the trail where it ran and let it go don't push it, they can go for ever if pushed.
