Default Christmas Gift

After a good Christmas dinner with the family I decided to go make an evening hunt since Iíve never taken a deer on Christmas Day. I was hunting public land where bucks only gun season is in progress and if you choose to bow hunt you have to only shoot bucks as well. I might add I havenít killed a deer on this public in 3 seasons due to the herd crashing to all time lows! Not that I havenít tried, itís just been hard to even see tracks much less the deer that makes them!
This pretty spike came in and gave me a 6 yard shot and I was blessed to make a good shot. Four years ago I got a Wire Haired Dachshund to train to blood trail, but since I havenít killed a deer here at home she has never had the opportunity to find a deer. So I went home and got my dog before starting to track. I was skeptical if she would do well since she is now 4 years old and hasnít had any real experience trailing other than when she was young I would drag a piece of Deer liver through my yard but she always did a great job. I could tell she was on it by her body reaction and I tried to keep up with her but she was running on the track. I could hear the tag on her collar clinging so I just followed the sound. When I caught up with her she was chewing on the deer! I was very pleased and she sure was excited as well.....
Thanks for reading folks
