Bleeding out of noseContributors to this thread:

Under what conditions will a deer bleed out its nose after being shot? Only a lung shot? Thanks
In the head.
1) lung shot
2) blunt trauma to chest and/or throat caused by collision during the escape run
3) head or neck shot
4) a shot that clips or nicks the trachea or esophagus
5) A nose bleed
That about covers it.

runs into a tree when he's escaping :-)
Not good. Take him to the doctor.
If you can fix the nose bleed,you can hunt him and not kill him another day.......
Shot in the nose?
smarba, I shot a bear up the nose once and yes, they bleed buckets. Long story.
Could be that he has been doing too much "snorting"...
My hunting partner shot the. #4 CO whitetail (at the time) in the nose and he didn't go very far either. It was a 70 yard follow up shot through trees, the buck turned at the shot which deflected off a branch. Turns out he'd missed the first shot low. The Muzzy ended up cutting the carotid artery.
