My partner shot a doe last year right in the shoulder blade. I ended up killing it three weeks later and although it couldn't use it's left front leg, it was otherwise healthy and the meat was excellent. The truth is that unless you see the exact same deer later on, you have no way of knowing what really happened.

Impossible!!!! You cannot shoot a deer anywhere with a Rage and have it survive.

I know that for a fact. I read on here \:\)

I'm a firm believer that most non gut shot deer that are shot with a bow and are not recovered actually live. Well, ones that are tracked by people with experience anyway. I shot a doe last week with a 2 inch expandable head at ~ 22 yards. She was quartering away more than I realized and I had to stay at full draw forever waiting on a shot. As a result I sorta rushed the shot and hit her too far forward. I CLEARLY saw the point of impact of the arrow and saw the arrow in the deer as she ran off. I hit her behind the front shoulder in the dead center of the chest. The arrow was too high to get her heart and due to the angle it only got one lung. I followed blood for a little over 200 yards and she quit bleeding. I spent quite a bit of time the next day looking for her and never found her. I am convinced that somehow she is still walking around with just one lung.

If you can tell that much about an arrow hit, angle of penetration and where the b.h. ended up, with dead certainty, you are indeed a unique individual. Half the time, I am not even sure I hit them.

j & s. I in no way was directing this at you or anybody else. It sounds like u tried very hard to recover. I have just heard the "it'll probly live" line far to often and too much. I posted this becasuse of that line. Once again when i posted, i said "wasnt directed to anyone and not trying to cause any ruffling". The "you must be better than us"? sorry if you were offended.

Normally I can't really tell either, but she ran off right under my tree, so I had a great look at the arrow in her and it was definitely behind the front shoulder and lodged in the off side shoulder. The reason I think it must've just been one lung is because most of the blood I found was bubbly lung blood, but the deer ran way too far to be double lunged.
