Buck Down-Recovery Continuing post from last night

Recommended Posts

Continuing my post from last night.

I sat all day only seeing a single doe here and there most of the day, 6 in total.    At 4:00pm a doe came in browsing and worked to 20yds by this time its 4:30 and I hear a grunt.   I look toward the sound and the buck is 70yds away looking at her.  It works its way toward her grunting a few times.   Pushes her off and I stop him with a grunt 30yds away.  Hes now quartering away, Right when I squeeze the trigger on the release it turned and I hit way back.   As you all know I let him lay for the night.

Got up this morning and met the dog tracker.   The dog made quick time of the track.   The buck didn't go real far at most 300yds.  I probably  would have been able to find him myself but wanted to be safe with getting the dog.

Not a huge buck but it got me going.   I keep telling myself can't shoot a big one if you don't pass the average ones.  Someday I'll listen.

A quick Thank You to Paul and his dog Dallas.

Excellent job on the recovery. Backing out and the use of the tracking dog worked out perfect for you Oleboy! :up:

Congrats. Paul and Dallas are great. I have brought them in a few times now. Great service they provide. Whenever we have to let one go we bring the dogs. Thats how (rookies) we roll. 

Always tip your trackers

Congrats on a Friday fine buck. Awesome job by Dallas; love the name. I just wish the team played as well as the dog did.

Thanks for the nice words Andy. One of the benefits of this tracking deer thing is meeting so many nice sportsmen. Tom Cook is on that list also
