If that is the hair then you just grazed him and he'll be fine. You tore a chunk out, if you hit him solid you would get pieces of just hair, not a huge chunk like that.
Exactly what I was thinking.

You won't be finding that deer, like others have said, you grazed him. From the hair/blood you foundI would say belly.

did you see any other matter that looks like intestines, guts etc.. i tracked one one time that a friend shot like that and it opened up the stomach enough that the guts started falling out and he was draging them it finally laid down and died, it took about a mile though...
good luck..

I would listen to what Wilk said. If you grazed the belly it could be dragging it's insides all over the woods. You should at least go back and make your best effort at finding the deer or finishing the job. I tracked two this year with a sparce to nonexistant blood trail this year and found them both. One went over 300 yards. Good luck with your search.
