Tracking down a doe

Saturday went in the woods here in Perry Co. at 1030, not far from where I parked on a friend's property. Fog lifted, heard a couple shots. At 1145 three rounds a couple hundred yards away, then a short ways from that shooter a couple more, not another shot heard. At 1400 I was bored and started down hill to where I parked. Half way down I met a man and his wife coming up the hill for an late hunt. The man is 82 years old and his wife is 78. Isn't that wonderful? At the bottom I find fresh deer tracks and blood, I could see the deer was traveling down hill and headed toward a stream and across the road between two parked cars. I trailed and back trailed, loosing the trail then finding it again. This goes on like this! 1/4 mile from the place this doe was shot to where I over took her and did a head shot. At the place there she was hit, leg pieces and blood, the shooter just would not trouble their self to check. A nice young fat doe with the hind leg blow away right above the knee. I was glad I found this gift, it took two hours of tracking/hunting! By 1800 all meat was boned out and in the cool.

Re: Tracking down a doe

Thank you for putting that doe out of her misery and shame on the other hunter for not being more dilligent in recovering his shot quarry.

The more people that I meet, the more I love my dog
