He's hit but I would give him plenty of time. He'll bed up soon and may take a few hours to expire (if he does expire). What type of gun and bullet was he using?

I agree, for sure hit, but I am very skeptical of whether it was a fatal hit. My gut feeling tells me is was not. Best of luck in your efforts recovering him, or possibly seeing him again in the near future and getting a second chance.

Definite hit! i would hope he lays down and bleeds out or goes into shock.

Do you have an update?

Definitely hit but I don't think it was a fatal hit.

Definately broke the front leg. Looks right below the vitals but maybe a fragment of bone or bullet somehow got the heart. Good luck to and your son!

That looked like a 100% leg hit to me. Bummer for your son and the deer.

Thanks for all the input guys. We just got back a few minutes ago. We looked hard for about 5 hours and did not find him. We jumped a big buck that looked pretty healthy as he ran away, so we are not sure if that was him or not. If it was, he should have a good chance of surviving.

I was able to slow the footage down frame by frame on my 27" imac and he was definitely hit in the leg. Not sure exactly where, but it looks like it was just about as high as you can get without getting into the vitals. My son has killed a pile of deer and this one is the first deer he has lost. It is also his biggest. I think he was just a little rattled and probably jerked the trigger. Whatever the reason, he made a poor shot. When he gets home from school, I will talk with him about it and let him know that it happens sometimes and hopefully it will be a teachable moment for him.

It sucks. I have a lot of trail camera pics and videos of this buck and it was one I have been after since the season started. I finally figured out what he was doing and the plan worked perfectly yesterday, all except for the end result. Hopefully he will survive and we will catch up with him later down the road.

Thanks again for chiming in.
