This is true for the most part Denny. But you know as well as I do that with experience you can tell when a bird isn't hit well and it has it's legs underneathe it. I don't care if you've got a NFC Retriever, if you have a pheasant that goes down like this and takes off running chances are very, very slim that it will be recovered. Of course I'm talking wild birds. And "no" I don't care for pellets (unless it's 7.5 shot - lol!) But, I think you owe it to the injured bird as an ethical hunter to do whatever you need to do to recover that bird. Occasionally, it takes a second shot to do that...
