    ? on a liver hit deer

    Hey peeps, could you guys tell me how far a liver hit deer will go and how long it will take for them to die? I hit one last night have pretty good blood but backed out until this a.m only problem is it rained last night.

    If it wasn't pressured then most likely didn't go far. But ya never know with liver hits.

    Ive never had one go very far. If you were in cover you ought to find it pretty easy.

    Yeah i agree with Team Hoyt PA. As long as nothing pushed it, it would want to "curl up & die". Also search a close source of water.

    You did the right thing backing out. You should find him quickly this morning. Good luck!

    mine went about 100yards last year, took about 5 hours to expire

    Mine went about 50 yards and was down for the count in about 2 minutes. Don't know how normal that is.

    I liver hit one the other day, and she made it about 250 yards. From the looks of the blood trail, she ran the whole way though.

    I shot a doe in the liver about 6 years ago she ran over 500 yards recovered her the next day but I have also shot deer in the liver and watched them run 30 yards stop then fall over.

    ive never had one go really far. they just tend to bed down and stay alive a little bit longer than a lung hit. if you gave him over night you will more than likely find the deer
