Lot of white hair there, was it a steep angle shot? That dark blood looks like liver to me. I'd of swore double lung a few times only to discover, due to the angle, I only got one. And they can and will go a long way on one lung. The fact it layed down right away I think would suggest the hit was further back and you got liver and/or gut also. I've never had a lung only hit deer lay down like that.
I double lunged one last night with an 06 and it had one of the lighted bloodtrails I've ever seen and went about 80 yards.
I'd say there's a good chance you'll find it, just may take awhile.
