Non-fatal hit, broken bone.
Unless he bleeds out (hit of the brachial artery), that wound will seal over. That hit was so high up and total, he can't put any pressure on the leg, nothing to support it.
Hate to say it, but he will likely starve or succumb to coyotes.
To a deer, every human is a stump.
To a turkey, every stump is a human.

I am not guessing here, I am certain I see the right front leg swing out and away in an abnormal motion as the deer pivots to run off. That leg is destroyed.

Take up the trail carefully. If you have any idea which way the deer will funnel, you might put a stander near the escape route as you take up the trail.

He might recover, might not.

Good looking buck, good luck!

X2 For sure!!

I bet that leg heals up and you'll have trail cam pics of him soon.

Hes hit. Im not gonna say its fatal, it looks to me like he just got the leg, but the saveing grace is if it opend up the chest any. The reason i say this is i had it happen to me befor.Bullet hit low right where leg meets lowest portion of chest and opend it up but didnt penatrate any virals. But upon tracking amd putting a finisher in its neck i saw where the insides were comeing out the opening. Liiked like a open zipper where the bullet traveld across. Id say your chances are 50/50 of finding it. Good luck and nice deer.
