Default The Potential for Ricochet Shots

I'm sure lots of you have a ton of stories about your various hunting experiences. Got me wondering if there were any stories about shots you took, or that someone else took, that ricocheted. (sp?)

In the dense woods of the Northeast, that's something I wonder about. I'm going to "assume" that ricochet is always a concern, whether you hit the animal you were aiming at, or not.

How real is the potential for ricochet? If "10" is a very dangerous thing in hunting, and "1" is hardly worth being concerned about, where does the potential for "ricochet" lay in that graph?
