Provided it is legal in your state to quarter game. In Illinois, it is a no no.
and there are limitations to most all the responses here. you have to make your best effort to retrieve shot game, and in the end, the best judge of your best effort, is you.

If others are to be the judge of what is and isn't enough effort, then I might say anything short of 6 days tracking don't cut it. now how many are guilty of not enough effort?
