Lost my first arrow in a deer , will it despawn?

Ah well it was bound to happen ! I crafted my first bow and arrow (well , I found the arrow head) and a deer runs off with my arrow embedded somewhere. I lost track of the blood as my ankles started spraining up where it ran .

I’m hoping I will stumble across the carcass and arrow in the future or will an unharvested body de-spawn? Possibly taking my arrow with it?

thanks

Ok thanks , so some listening for crows then :) day one of that didn’t turn anything up , I think I’m right that a hit with an arrow will always eventually lead to bleed out with deer so I’ll widen my search tomorrow

They can run for miles , usually up the highest slope they can find😁.      I find ,at least with wolves and bears that they'll run in a large circle,if they live long enough..    good luck finding it...

Oof, searching for runaway arrows brought me the most pain. Very frustrating 😁 did you manage to find the carcass? If you didn't you might stumble upon the arrow one day, once the carcass is gone it will be just lying on the snow. Very hard to spot though
