bluestar or luminol blood trailing spray or tablets

Recommended Posts

You need any help tracking?

Only places I can think of somewhat locally (to me) would be Cheyenne and Sportsmen's Center…but they're probably closed by now.

Maybe Walmart if you're near one or Dick's Sporting Goods?

i have good trail and an idea of were he is headed .... right towards a wet swamp. the swamp is only a hundred or so yards away from when i backed out. i tracked him 300 yards so he should bed down in there. it was a liver hit so he should bed in the thicket. the rain going to mess me up but i have all day to find him.

I saw where luminol can work even after rain.

Man, just not sure where you can find it…best bet is probably to call around in the morning if you plan on waiting until then?

Without it though, the rain will definitely be a problem and you'd have to resort to grid searching.

If he made it 300 yards, probably best to let him bed down, especially if you have him narrowed down to an area you believe he will.

I think he was saying you posted at 10:12AM and said 5 hours of grid searching...so you'd be out there grid searching at 5:12AM :)

I was recording the tp 'd blood trail before 5:12 on the gps. I was walking deer trails past were I lost the trail putting up tp more by 5am . Its hot out and wanted to salvage the meat and try to find it early . These first tracks were the perimeters of my grids. don't know what else to call it but grid search. I wasn't blood trailing it rained last night.

Nice you were out there early, definitely a good move with these unseasonably warm temps! How was the deer/meat, all good?
