How far does a deer usually run after being shot in the lungs or heart with a bow?

Author: justinwp
justinwp - In my experience, a deer will run less than a hundred yards after a shot to the lungs or heart.

JamesD - The last one I shot in the lungs jumped a fence, jumped into and out of a creek and then went a short way before piling up. All together she only ran 50 yards though.

DougD - Since i have been hunting i have had a deer that was double lunged and took one step before falling over when shot with a bow. Also i have had others that have been shot in the lungs and run 150 to 175 yards so i guess it just depends on the deer.

Michael H - If a deer is hit high in the lung {very top of rib cage about three inches behind shoulder} would it be possible for him to run over a mile? I tracked one that far with very little blood {arrow did not pass through} gave up but wondering if i should go back or maybe i am wrong and really only hit soulder.

A reminder to buy flowers on mothers day! Or social behavior, to use school yards during vacation so the kids wouldn’t be on the streets.
