H3ll would freeze over before I let a dog off leash on a hike - no matter how perfect his recall. Jump a deer or a rabbit and end up in the next county. Come across something like an abandoned snare or trap. Wander far enough to reach a road and traffic. Some helpful person sees him, assumes he's abandoned and takes him, if you're lucky, to the nearest shelter. Meets a family group, knocks over a child, who ends up hurt. Hunter sees movement, assumes deer or whatever's in season. Bang.

Leash, flexi, longline. Or leave him home.

I once reclaimed a rescue dog when the clueless adopters did that with one of my dogs the day after I left her with them.
