I know in a perfect ethical world your deer should not go far because we should hit them perfect. In reality Im sure everybody has had a bad hit weather it be with a firearm or with an arrow. I also know that deer (or other big game) are strong and people find them living with all sorts of injuries. But alot of bad hit animals die beyond our tracking beacause we lose blood or just cant find the game for what ever reason. Im wondering who has used a dog to find there deer that couldnt truley find it without it.
