Last night's tracking adventure here has me wondering what's "normal" when it comes to how far you have to track a well hit deer you've shot with a rifle.
I know there are too many variables involved for a direct animal to animal comparison, but I'm just looking for a general idea "If I make a good hit on a deer with my rifle, I normally find them on the ground within _____ of where I shot them" kind of thing
My experience has been they normally run out of oxygen and or blood and are on the ground within 50-60 yards from where they were standing when shot. I've had more fall WELL inside that, to even DRT, than I have had ones like last night's that run 4x that far.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around what happened last night :uhm:
SO, on a "good hit" to the chest, with your preferred rifle, how far do your deer normally go before piling up?
