It is the wounding and not tracking that should be regulated.

Yes, I know there are those that do not put in reasonable effort to find game that did not go down. That ain't me, restricting me because someone 'could' skip doing the right thing is tyranny of the masses to attempt to control the few.

This is the same 'control' method that is being applied to 'gun control'.

Problem is law and regulations makers fail to see is that the few are gonna do it anyway.

jfseaman, you are right on.... Mentors need to instill that in the minds of young hunters. If you take a shot , better take a good look for blood. Even if you think you missed it, go and check. Some times the youngins lie, they get bored and take a shot at a tree, they say they shot at a deer... lol..and i corrected that ... If they miss, cut their shirt tail off... Funny how it works after that.

    Be sure and let me know how this turns out for you.

    Have you seen the slingshots they use in punkin' chunkin' at Halloween? The ones that toss frozen white skin pumpkins (they're solid meat inside, no voids) that weigh about 10lbs and the slingshot style reach about 800-1000 yards? They can cave a car door in at point blank range.

    Now let me use one of those with ol' Roy backing me up.....

    I think it is one more great way to thin out the gene pool. Though I did have an aunt that did drive a bear away by throwing rocks and yelling. She thought the bear was after a new born calf. I never did ask her where she got the rocks as there were very few (none) in the farm yard.
