How long does it take a double lung-shot deer to run 100 yards and drop?

Five or six seconds---or less? I think that is a quick kill.
Given some of the places I hunt, I have a few yards of clearing and then woods. Finding a wounded animal through 80 yards of briar, poison ivy, woods can be an extremely daunting and time consuming task.

100 yards on small parcels may be the difference between the deer remaining on your property or not.

So while a few seconds is considered a quick kill (and quick kills are good), it can still be far from ideal.
