Thats sucks big time. Go back and look for her. Look for birds circling in the sky above. She'll die from that wound.

How long did you look? Their should be blood somewhere on the trail she ran off on. I would have kept looking. If you had let her sit overnight you probably would have found her the next morning.
Can you use punctuation when you type, It gets confusing reading your post. lol

I've heard of folks leaving deer over night and still eating them but not where I live. The weather is usually too warm, and if a deer isn't found and dressed within an hour they are left. I wouldn't reccommend eating the meat even in cold weather, if the deer can't be found and field dressed right away, but cold weather could stretch the time several hours maybe. I can't understand how guys hunting in warm climates can wait very long before tracking, but I see it on tv all the time. Ted Nugent or someone is hunting in Texas, in a bug suit, and after shooting the deer at noon he waits to let it die. Then six hours later in full darkness they track and find the deer, and hold it up for photos in a cloud of flies. Let an already warm ( body temperature) steak lay outdoors a few hours and you would'nt eat it. There are a lot of bad things inside a body, that will spoil it very fast. Especially when you don't drain the fluids and remove the guts. After that, with cold weather they cool fast.
I guess it all depends on the temp your hunting in.

To me it sounds like you only looked for blood at the impact area of the shot and didnt really try finding it other than walking in the same direction the deer went. There is blood somewhere and thats a dead deer. Go back and look.....
