Default Tracker needed Live Oak/Jim Wells county (Orange Grove)

Got one down with a pretty decent blood trail that disappeared after 100 yards. Son made a good shot, jumped, kicked, then ran. This is his first buck and a decent little 8.

Outside Orange Grove near 281/624 intersection.

Our family used to have about 680 ac. about five miles from there down 281 towards Alice, down at the next intersection on 281.

Hope you find the deer.

Looks like we hit further back than we had hoped but in the end, we got what we were after!
Big Thank you to Wade Cornelius, his son and his dog Gunsmoke!!

First time ever using a dog and I was very impressed! Would definitely recommend this guy! Just stand back and let them do their thing!
