Frequently Asked Question

Will there be more wounded game with the use of bow and arrow as a hunting tool?

No, the statistics from Denmark clearly show that this is not the case. The Danish study conducted between 1999 and 2004 reports 533 roe deer hit by arrows. Less than 5% of the roe deer reported hit were not recovered or were labeled as wounded.

A similar study made in the U.S. on white-tailed deer in South Carolina, showed only 2% losses (tracking dogs were used to aid recovery of downed deer). Comparable studies for rifle or shotgun show similar or higher losses.
