I've never lost one, but two whitetails required searching all day before finding them - one across a river and the other a few hundred yards away on adjacent farm property. Both were shot with a bow. My regular hunting buddy and I searched for a buck for hours, lost the blood trail several times in standing corn, and finally had to quit because a snow storm was going to trap us miles from home. He had shot the deer with a muzzle loader. I think that is the only animal either of has ever lost.
