Archery recovery distance

I was just wondering with proper shot placement, how far will a bird usually make it after being shot with an arrow? Anyone have any stories of both short and long recovery? One property I will be hunting is very small and I would like to make sure that if I use a bow, I set up in an area that isn't too close to any of the property lines just in case.

I lost a fall hen once with a bow, and vowed it would never happen with a spring gobbler. Too many places here in the big woods for them to sail off into to never be found and just be coyote bait IMHO.
