For you experienced hunters out there.
How many times have you need to take a second shot at the same sporting critter?
Why? Tough critter? Shot wasn't placed right or you missed?
Of all the sporting critters you've shot what proportion were needed a second shot? 1 out of 100? 1 out of 10?
By sporting critters, I mean something like trophy animals or meat animals White tail deer being the most common. I am not counting things like prairie dogs or wild pigs. Varmint critters. With varmint critters a crippling shot that gets away is less of a concern.
I ask because usually I hear from folks more experiences than me that they don't even have to track shot game. It most commonly drops where it stood, with not tracking of blood trail necessary.
