Sometimes a high shot deer is brought down by vitals being tucked up towards its spine from being bedded.
A shot in the same area (I'm Talking archery) on one that's been on its feet awhile may not be as effective because the lungs settled out some.
I found too that even though you have a good memory picture of where the deer was struck, sometimes when you get to them things are a little different than what was originally captured by the mind.
Not scientific study here,just some observations.
Take from it what you want or leave it.
That young fellows hooked even though he had a bad gig, he'll be out as soon as he can I'm sure.
Probably weary of going through the event in his head from being disappointed. That'll pass and come back some time later to him.
Its experience building.
