Most surveyors tape does degrade. Basically it gets brittle with time and fades and will fall off whatever you tied it to. I know we all have seen pieces that are years old along property lines and so forth. I use tiny pieces, maybe two or three inches long on a weed or branch etc. I don't want no big dangling flags on a blood trail. I try to pick up the pieces after the kill though as I do not like to litter. I also mark trails with it (the glow type) so I can see it in the dark as I walk into a stand the first couple of times. Keeps me from getting disoriented sometimes.
