Shot a big doe and I think I got the secondary lung, pretty sure the arrow then hit the "void" completely missing the primary lung. The arrow was covered in secondary lung blood, no primary lung blood found, some spotty "void" blood. Called a dog tracker in who is very experience in tracking secondary blood.

I just woke up, grabbed my phone and saw this thread title..
My first thought was *** is this guy talking about..Great post, keep it going
So with that, we now know your primary action upon awakening is to grab your phone...the heck I am talking about is the evolved deer with primary and secondary lungs. Fastest evolutionary change ever.

Ensure the tracking dog is a chihuahua, like my Bandito. Let me know if you require his assistance. Very little blood should ALWAYS be a sign that a very little "dog" be utilized. With every step he'll shake and his eyes will bug out as the deer gets closer. If he poops get your bow ready, he's deathly scared of anything alive. Bandito WILL find your deer. When he does he'll gladly dry hump it's head and neck to really prove he deserves a day old mexi fry treat.

I thought I was the only one that humped the head and neck of every deer I recover.

Bandito is my spirit animal.

For secondary lung tracking, I think schipperkes are the best tracking dogs, chihuahuas are fine for primary… her favorite food is actually chihuahua chops

I'm not sure how much help using a guy who tracks dogs is going to do you?

Live and learn I guess, next time stop your ebike first before taking the shot. The 2nd mistake you made was not taking the texas heart shot she gave you. If you had done both of these things you would have probably hit the 3rd lung (the one with the green stuff in it) and you would have found her dead within a mile.

If it had been a frontal shot, especially a trophy buck, I'd taken a jaw shot. If he can't eat he's surely gonna die but it'll take a few minutes for him to expire. I'd wait a lil bit before you start tracking, 5 minutes should be good enough though.

Is it true that deer have 2 harts and 3 lungs ?
During the cretaceous period cervids had a primary, secondary, and tertiary lung. Historically, cavemen had inaccurate cut charts, so they consitently shot deer too high. As the cervids evolved, the tertiary lung has gone away. The location where said tertiary lung used to be is now called, "the void".
