Re: Deer down but def not dead!
The deer I shot this year was a through and through lung shot. Field dressing showed the ENTIRE chest cavity to be liquefied. BUT, when I walked up to the dear, the entry would was bubbling about once a minute. Even though the eyes were open, and it passed the "prod the eye with a stick" test, I still wasn't going to take a chance. I backed off about 20 yards and put a 168 gr. into its skull. No doubts, field dressing proceeded as planned.
