Default Deer Dog Recoveries 2013-2014

I figured we needed a new thread for this years dog work.
For alot of us, the tracking has become as much fun as the hunting.
I love checking in every Monday and reading about the recoveries and all the good dog work.
As for my team we are setting on go.

I have a dog I'm going to try out for the first time this year. She has all the potential in the world but never been on the real deal. So I hope I get to post on here her work. Good luck to y'all that already have a jam up dog.

I've been working with 2 black mouth/Catahoula male pups, that are about 5 months but I don’t know if they’re going to make the cut. They just don't really have any drive. I'm hoping that they get more excited when I put them on a real track.

I'm looking to put my dog on some live trails this year. If you hunt in the Georgetown area and kill a deer I'd like to run him on some easy trails to see if I can get him more interested. Feel free to call me at 512-818-2609. He only got to run one trail last year on a doe that was a single lung shot and he did great. He just needs more practice.

Tracking conditions are good right now at least in central texas. But remember the do's and don'ts.
Remember the laws, a wounded deer leaves a blood trail, if no blood trail go ahead and call your local game warden and get permission to track with a dog. Get your neighboors phone numbers.
We have a chance of rain this weekend but remember a dog can still work after the rain.
You also need to be able to read the weather, for instance a warm day getting hotter, thermal updrafts. For me i would rather track that deer the next morning, night cooled off, thermal downdraft, hopefully some dew on the ground. Also other scent faded away. It may be a 24 hour old track but you should have been working your dogs for cold nose. Weather plays a big role in tracking.
I also like tracking during the day, i'm set up to track at night. But remember you can't kill a deer at night and can't kill a deer with a gun during archery only season. You can't even carry a gun during bow season unless you have a chl and your weapon in concelled.
Good luck everybody!

"Rocky" called about 7:30 with a heart shot doe. Bitty made the 50-60 yard track on her own with only one 8-10 min delay (don't like others around). Over all great improvement on her second track. I learned more about her as well.

Thanks for the training opp. Rocky!

My older dog and my new pup got into it today, both are tore up pretty good. Stapled and glued them both back together. Put them on antibiotics and something for pain. Never fails, they have had all summer to get this fight over with but they wait till opening day of bow season. Neither one hurt too bad, both still able to work if need be.

My buddy shot a big 9 this afternoon and were gonna take the dog out there tomorrow, but I'm afraid all the rain probably washed all the blood away. You guys think there's any hope of finding this deer? Iv never used a dog before. I sure hope he can pull of a miracle

Rage the rain could be an issue for yall if yall get what we are getting in Hays Co.

This is SPICE. She was given to my daughter and us by Al. This was her first run 2 yrs. She has been put on atleast 2 deer each season and has done her job. Not to bad for a Vizsla.

I don't have a picture of the wonderful yellow lab that made short order of my first bow kill. In the spice wood area, great shot but the doe went 75 yards into a thicket.
I am thankful Millie was there with us.

My middle son shot a does last night. Quartering away a little far back. When we cleaned her we found he had hit liver and back lobe of far lung. Put Camo down. We followed blood for a little ways then it stopped. He went out further and I heard him yip which means he had jumped her alive. About 400 yds later I could hear him bay. When we got to him doe was down.
Good start

Default Diamond's first this season

Took Diamond out this morning. Scott said that he had heard the thud and then a little later heard her wheezing in the distance. It was about 2 hrs. later we started to look. A very little blood and that was it. I figured very high lung. I put the dog down and she went crazy. There had been 12 deer in the area at shot time. After pulling her off several trials going the wrong way, we started working the tree line approx. where the Doe entered.

Within a couple of minutes I see the indications the dog is on, she slowed down a touch, every now and then she would stop for a split second to stick her nose to the ground, She was making sounds like a small rutting pig and she was casting back every now and then to pick up the trail. ALL signs that she has the trail but it is tough. She work that trail through about 75 yards of tree line and then hit a clearing. From there she started on a straight line. A little bit in to the clearing I look ahead and see a white belly. Bingo.

When we got to the deer there was no blood showing, we rolled her over entrance was front edge of the shoulder high and angled back. No exit wound.
Most of the trail was worked with no blood visible to the human eye. Mine at least.

Total trail was less than 250 but still one of the hardest she has worked.

To say the lest
I am very proud of Diamond and her progress. Her fist track was a year ago next weekend.
