What are peoples experiences with deer that they've shot a bit low in the chest, missing the heart, but still damaging the lungs?
I ask because the one I shot yesterday just set off walking, leaving a blood trail you'd never miss(shame I didn't bring the pup) but not looking too bothered at all. I ended up shooting her again as she walked right up to me, saw me and I thought she'd end up running off.
Another lesson learned, if you are above and shooting down into the animal, aim higher than normal. I knew this but somehow didn't put it into practice
