Let me draw up a picture. Last chance/day for me to bow hunt (schedule). A couple minutes of legal shooting light left - right as camera man goes to put up his camera, out comes ones of the bucks I have been after. He quickly eases in and the camera man can't get the camera going - the camera shutters - deer looks right at us - I'm at full draw n he's facing straight at me (20 yards) with his chest poked out. Buck fever hits and THUMP - nailed him - chest shot. Give him an hour to expire, find the arrow about 60 yards from where I hit him - blood almost all the way up to the fletching and a lot of blood around the arrow (small puddles). Blood 2 yards away from the arrow, then poof gone nothing. I searched around for another hour then gave up for the night. Any suggestion when I go on the search tomorrow morning. Also, with this cooler weather will the meat still be good if I find him before the coyotes do?

Meat will be fine. If he isn't real close just start the grid search. Chest shots are notorious for internal bleeding. Obviously check water, thickets, blowdowns first good luck

Nephew has a chocolate lab. Never had him the woods though. Might be a good time to break him in.

I've had straight on chest shots never yield a drop of blood. But, when you field dress the chest cavity is full.
I think with a solid hit, he won't be far.
Will be nice a cool tonight, a big plus for you.

check the thickest thickets, the ones you want to steer around when searching for him. Best of luck
