It all depends on your interpretation of the shot. If it was a great double-lung or heart shot I wait 30 - 45 min. But in early season when temps are over 80 degrees, its 30 min and start trailing. Poorly hit deer take much much longer. Here are a few rules of thumb that I use www.deer30outdoors.com/interpreting-shot-quality/ for determining the wait time.
