First gun track for the season and “THE BEAST “ is batting .1000
The hunter had to finish off the deer after a half mile track. The track was 27 hours old and the deer was shot through the front leg. We found a couple pieces of bone on the track. The hunter told me that he didn’t think there was a chance the dog would recover the deer, because his son and himself looked for the buck for 5 hours. My son found the only spot of blood on the track , other than a few drops where he jumped a fence.
I tracked this buck a couple weeks ago and stopped on it after a mile loop. I got a call again inquiring about a track and a trail cam picture of the same buck from a different Hunter, on a neighboring farm. “THE BEAST” closed the deal this time and showed me why she’s called “ THE BEAST “
This deer pulled off a big back track and fooled everyone but my dog. Once again she made easy work of a difficult track, with only one bed of blood.
This track wore me out. I had to send the hunter back to his truck to get his muzzleloader so he could finish off his buck. It took the hunter over an hour to get back and in the meantime the buck got up and walked off. We tracked him back down and finished him off with a head shot and a follow up stab to the heart
