I agree sometimes the circumstances limit you to have to call it quits. heck I lost2 deer I have shot but I did search for 3 days after until I was positive I was not going to find it
I may be wrong & I am sorry if I am it sounds to me reading the post like he was not properly prepared to hunt where he was hunting. If it was that thick & swampy I would have had to pass on that area or dress appropriately & carry the essential items to make a recovery. Maybe it is me but it is one thing I do when stepping into an area is making sure if I shoot will I be able to get a deer out of there the best I can
just my 2 cents
