2.) what lies beyond the animal if I miss?
List is good, add this. I would expect this to be a part of it automatically, as well as confirm target species, and that it qualifies.

As told to me by a colleague, he and his brother were hunting in CO with out of state tags. Saw a bull walking up a ridge, nailed it with a lung shot. The bull made it to the top of the ridge, died and rolled down the other side. Took them another four hours to get to it and two days to pack it out.
