Following on from the "Is .243 Big Enough" debate, how many own or have ready access to a dog capable of tracking a lost animal?
From the plethora of posts on the topic, it appears almost inevitable that regardless of calibre, capability or experience, at some stage all stalkers are likely to shoot an animal they are subsequently unable to find. Whether dropped within a bush just a few metres from where shot, to having made an adrenaline fuelled run of 100 metres or more.
I also don't recall the topic being broached during DSC1. Does my memory fail me and if not, surely the topic should be part of the syllabus?
