Slim....Unless you track him and finish him off. Now he is going to the safest place he knows, to either bed and die or bed and recover.

Go to the nastiest thickest place on the property and look there, if there is a place like that near water even better.

Did you run out of blood after 400 yards? I think that I would still be looking. It sounds like a leg hit, but you never know.

10-4. Good luck. I think that I would take up the offer for the beagle though.

Leg would be my guess. Backing out and waiting is the mistake. Leg shots can be recoverable but youhave to keep them moving. Running is even better. If it is a high leg, better chances that a low one. By letting im sit, chances are slim.

Go with either the beagle or Catman.
