Some consider it part of the sport and quickly move on while others despise it as much as they do Donald Trump or Nancy Pelosi. Some camps require hunters to burn a tag, while others take a more forgiving approach.

How many wounded deer have gone un-recovered in your deer camp this season? Only note those deer in which there was strong evidence the deer was hit with a bullet or arrow.

SIL took a shot at a big mature 7pt. He ran off like he wasn't touched but found a little white fur and what looked like a chunk of meat off the brisket. He has been a super regular deer on the cameras, I hope it was a minor wound and he recovers and I hope he sticks around for round two and it doesn't go his way.

At the house we’re 100% recovery, the lease is also 100%. Hunted this weekend with a coworker, his place is 50%. eek2 bang scared I know crap happens but come on.... what are they doing. Our recovery rate is 100% but our harvest rate is also not big. Outside of “oh crap” moments how can your recovery rate be 50%.

It’s amazing to me how “hunters” will let a wounded deer run away, but they won’t call in any tracking dogs.

We had a nice buck run off after the shot. Called in the dogs, found him quick.

For Gods sake people, call in a professional dog tracker when needed, don’t just let wounded deer run off.

12 hunters, 3 trophy bucks, 12 management bucks, several does - one hunter lost a trophy buck opening morning of rifle. Doubt it was a fatal wound.

Have only lost 1 deer in 21 years here at my ranch. Did have another that was lost but found 1 week later.

Never lost one, but I know that time is coming after 60 years of hunting. I have tracked one 3/4 of a mile once.

0 because we haven't seen any shooters. And yes, I do hate either Trump or Pelosi.


If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.
