Congrats! Great buck! And you made the tough, but only right decision by backing out.
Gut shot deer aren't actually too difficult to find if they aren't pushed, since they usually lay down pretty quickly. The lack of good, easily track-able blood is what can make it difficult, especially if bumped. You couldn't have been too far behind or maybe below the liver with that shot, any chance you clipped it?
In any case...
You guys did everything right and recovered the animal! Awesome job all the way around!
“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear
