Is it just me or has there been an unually high number of unrecovered but wounded deer this year. Seems like I am gearing more of it than usual. Anyone else notice that?

I agree. Sounds like that blood trailing dog might get alot of work this year.

I know I've read about a lot of maimed turkey birds. I'm glad we have an opportunity to kill them in the fall, but I think there are a lot of people who don't learn where you're supposed to shoot them shooting them just because they're legal.

Now I'm sure I'll loose one next time out since I said that. UNJINX

I think that figure is between 30-35% BGG should know.

Dont believe this for one minute and i would have a hard time believing the percentage lost would vary much from ml or rifle for that matter
