Hey, if he's down, he won't go anywhere, but if he's down and re-grouping, pushing him may really make it difficult. You will lose every other deer taking a risky shot like this. A better decision is to wait until the deer turns broadside.
Waiting a couple hours only gets you more excited, but rarely hinders your recovery. If he was being pushed, and the hole was stopping up, you may drive him a mile or more. In fact quartering away shots give you the most margin for error.
At normal stand heights of 18 feet (avg)this will normally put your aiming spot a bit higher.
At 20 yards or less, he/she will likely not "jump" the string to make you miss high. Corina, your's is a relatively predictable situation and one that more hunters experience than would like to admit. Consider: If you hit one lung, there are at least four layers of membrain, skin, muscle, etc. If it was a clean pass, some of these layers will overlap each other and poetntially close off the entry hole and stop the bleeding if he lays down (which you want him to do).The most ethical placements have a large room for error and target the vitals, the lungs and heart.Targeting these vitals on the deer provides for the greatest margin of errof.It is ethical if it is within a hunter's ability, properly placed and with a sufficiently powerful weapon.All hunters should strive to make ethical decisions even when a buck of a lifetime is in range.However, I do have some friends that use expandable broadheads and have trouble shooting through a shoulder. After sunset I went back to the place of impact 3hrs. Two days later I took a shot on a 6pt at 42yrds out...sounded like a miss and sounded like I hit a tree... Anyway, the shot was at 10.5 yards, quartering away, went through the rib cage about the ninth and tenth rib and then out the chest.
