"Wounded Deer Help (Pics)"

LAST EDITED ON Nov-20-16 AT 10:03 PM (MST)

I shot a deer this afternoon on the last day of my Colorado 4th season deer tag. He hunched up when he was hit, so I felt it was a solid hit, and started running/walking to the left, I shot again and broke his back leg at the hip. I didn't see it because of the recoil but my wife said it was pretty much just flopping there. The deer then crossed from public land onto an Indian Reservation where I couldn't go. I was hunting very near the border so this was a distance of about 40 yards (he was supposed to run away from the border when he was hit but didn't follow directions very well).

After 30 minutes of phone calls I reached a tribal police officer that gave me permission to cross into their land to retrieve the deer. It was getting dark but I found significant blood about 50 yards later in the form of about six large blotches. These were about 100 yards from where he was shot. It was now dark which meant a follow-up shot was illegal so I decided to back out and let him bleed out overnight.

Thoughts? Did I make the right call by backing out? What are the odds of finding the buck? Where do you think he was hit by the pics and description?

Thanks for the insight. It is going to be a sleepless night for me but luckily the officer is escorting me onto their land in the morning to look for the buck, so I have hope.
