    Default trail dog

    My little dog is 5 months and has found her 5th deer. She acts like it's her job now. She waits patiently for me to put on her GPS collar and drag lead but when she hits the ground she's like a vacuum and I have to run to keep up. This was her first that wasn't at the end of a fake trail that I made by dragging a dead deer. This one actually ran about 50 yards into the woods but the trail looked like a horror movie. I'm saving my last two non-date-specific doe tags for bow hunting in hopes I'll get a more difficult, longer trail. Maybe I should switch back to Rage broadheads.

    If you enjoy chasing a dog a long ways, maybe you should take up coon hunting.

    Bow hunting for the purpose of a long blood trail doesn't seem very respectful to the animal. I'm sure that's not your attitude, and I'm not trying to be an asshole, but that's how it reads. Congrats on the success with the dog.

    Yep. It's a Teckle.

    I don't bow hunt for the harder trail. I bow hunt because I enjoy bowhunting. I'm also training a dog so I can recover hard to find deer like you've probably given up on and failed to find.

    Longer trails are almost inevitable when you don't have hydrostatic shock working for you. I don't find bowhunting an any less "respectful" way to kill an animal, just not usually as fast. I've had deer go back to eating after a passthrough and then just faint. I guess if I wanted to be fully respectful like self-righteous you, I'd use explosives. If it bothers you, you should eat beef and hotdogs. That's way more respectful.

    Lol. Nice little dog, she will probably find some young man or woman’s first deer that would not be recovered without your help. BJ

    Vey cool....
    I'm jealous especially after seeing the SH in the pic.
    My 6 month old SH tragically was killed by a car Saturday a week ago and the wife, kids, and I are devastated!
    I digress but she had already trailed two deer like a boss.....Cotton was gonna be a good one!
    Keep her on em.....a good blood dog is priceless.
