In 47 years of bow hunting, the only deer that ever dropped in their tracks when shot, were those I accidentally hit in the spine. While a perfect heart/lung shot will generally put an undisturbed deer down within sight, that still is 30-40 yards, which in a sub-division where lots are .7-1 acre, means the neighbors yard. If this happens, you will need the neighbors permission to retrieve the animal. From my experience, it is best to get this permission BEFORE you even start to hunt. Hunting a one acre parcel without permission from surrounding land owners, hoping to drop an animal within that one acre using standard archery equipment, is a foolish proposition and a invitation to a neighborhood feud that will last forever.
