    Was she on alert when you shot? Sounds like gut, and she has no idea what hit her

    Either need another arrow in her, or just give her time. Some time it can take hours if your back in liver or guts.

    She was broadside, this spike just chased her a little closer but she is still laying down in thick cover.

    I would just sit there for however long it takes her to expire! A gut shot deer is a dead deer. If she stays bedded, and isn't forced to move, she'll die right there. jmo

    I saw the impact, halfway up the body, and it looked like just a touch back. I’m really hoping for liver. I can only see her tail rn

    That was bad timing, but I think she'll bed again if they will leave her alone at some point. It's a shame, because you had her in your sight. Is she still visible?
