In terms of realism, you mean? Probably.
You're absolutely right of course that you can't control the direction
a hunt will take you, nor can you guarantee "straight line" progress
if you're gathering berries and the like, and your point about snares
is also correct. However, I think you missed an important point - you
don't necessarily have to do this every single day.
If, say, your hunt brings down a deer, then that's going to be good
for several meals. The party will lose time hunting it, butchering it,
and perhaps smoking the meat, but they can live of venison for a few
days before needing to hunt again.
In short it should definitely slow your progress, but assuming
appropriate terrain it wouldn't negate it entirely.
