If it is a muscle hit then you need to push him to find him. If you do not push him and keep his blood flowing then his blood will eventually clot and quit bleeding. Even if you hit one lung and keep pushing him, he might go a long way but he will die sooner or later. The only shot i do not recommend getting on the trail right away is the gut shot.

I hit a buck high earlier this year and got down right away to find bright red blood but i knew i hit him high. I decided to wait and i tracked him for a few hundred yards and lost the blood. I think this deer will survive but i also think that if i would have got right on him i would have found him.
