Default Buff and Lisa at Bigoakbowhunting need help ASAP!

Marty is a proud man and may not like me putting this out but he didn't answer my text.

Their tracking dog Ester broke free from him while they were tracking a red deer yesterday morning. She's on a 15' lead and took off through the brush in their high fence ranch. They fear she is tangled up and dying of thirst or injuries. Jagdt Terrier. They are tough. But if she's tangled up in brush from the lead she's not going anywhere. If anyone is close to Avinger and Bigoakbowhunting, please bring water and flashlights and help them find their dog.

Buff has given so much to the TBH community through his youth hunts and other donations.

The address to the ranch:

997 Big Oaks Road
Avinger
Texas 75630

Google Maps Link:

Phone number:

(903) 665-4880

Closer to 300 but for just the two of them that's a lot of ground with the ditches and brush it has on it.

Couple hundred acres in the thick east TX woods can take some time and hard to get through Im sure. Not sure whos all at the ranch but more eyes never hurt.

BtW- it's 300 acres of the thickest most twisted land you can imagine. There are animals in there that don't get seen for months.

Had a bunch of family, a few friends and even some folks that I had never met show up and we feel like we covered the ranch as best we could.
Lisa and I already walked the place down pretty good yesterday and again last night with the thermal.

Ester is no where to be found.

I hope she ran out on one of the roads and someone picked her up but I more expect a snake bite.

As many eyes as we had looking all day, I would have though we would have found the lead rope even if a hog killed her.

A big thanks for all the good wishes.


PS... y'all cut Addison oil some slack. There is a lot of difference between 300 acres out west than here in the timber

I am so sorry to hear this, Marty. Maybe she will show up at a neighbors.

A friend of mine lost her hound in NM while bear hunting. They thought they'd never see him again. Two weeks later a lady found him on the side of the road and took him to a vet. He had a microchip and by the end of the day he was on his way back to my friend. He was very thin, but in good shape otherwise. Never give up hope.
