One lung shot deer will tend to not expire for awhile (30 minutes???). I would wait at least an hour before tracking a one lung shot deer; and be ready for another shot after you start tracking him.

A heart shot deer will sometime do his "death run," after being shot in the heart, say, a 100 yard run.

I would favor at least a conical bullet over a patched black powder round ball for deer hunting; because a round ball --- when it hits bone --- will tend to expand into a approx. 2 inch diameter pie plate size, thus lacking in penetration ability.
