    A properly placed trail camera can also give you an idea if your buck made it or not.

    Thanks guys, my dad actually said these past days he's been seeing a really slow moving buck around that area with the same rack description of the one I shot so idk praying to the good Lord that it's him and he survived but I'll also be checking them water sources around the area just to be sure

    My broadhead if choice is the Sierra 130 grain BTSP .277" at about 2900 fps.
    I hear too many stories of people losing "hard hit" deer.

    Sounds like a shoulder shot. I shot a nice buck several years ago high in the shoulder. The arrow did just about exactly what you explained. I shot him in late October. The first Saturday in January he ran a doe by my stand. He didn't even show the slightest sign of a limp. This time I put him down for good with a rifle. As I was caping him out for a mount I found my broadhead lodged in him. They can be very tough. I would be hoping for a recovery instead of hoping to see buzzards.

    Have you fired your bow again? To make sure everything is right with your set up. Also how far was the shot? With 70# draw, if it was within 30yrds even on a bone you should've done more damage than what your explaining. It wouldn't be a problem with the broadhead. I've had their 3 blades fall open on me while shooting and it does effect the flight and puncture but not that severely.
    Sorry about your deer man. But they are tough animals and hopefully he survives to give you another shot.

    Focus all of your efforts at the nearest water source(s) This buck will probably be holed up very close by! Start your search from the place where the encounter happened and work your way towards the water source you think this deer would have went to. Good luck.

    It's very possible that you hit the leg bone. =(

    scroll about half way down page to picture of deer anatomy/skeletal structure. this should give you an idea of the where and what.
