Default opinion on this shot

I shot a real nice buck yesterday morning. I hit him just above vitals right under the spine. He was only ten yrds away so i figured at that angle I had to get atleast the opposite lung. I waited 3 1/2 hrs before i started tracking him. Followed a pretty consistent blood trail for atleast a mile before I lost it. I feel i may have pushed him but maybe this wasnt a vital hit. What do you think did i not wait long enough. How long can a deer go on one lung

Sounds like you hit no mans land.

My guess, He's alive.

you left out how high you were in the tree that determines the angle. my guess is he is alive. Is it just me or have we seen a lot more wounded deer posts this year?
