View Full Version : Successful night tracking
09-15-2004, 02:24 PM
Got a call last night around 8 got to the track at about 9:30. I got to track an 8 pointer for a Mr Carl Christiansen,250 yards or so long. He could only show me the general area the deer was standing when he shot but no blood. Baby had several false starts just trying to find the deer. One lead back to his truck. Come to find out the bed was full of blood from a doe the Carl's wife had shot earlier that evening. Once Baby settled down on the trail we went about 50 yards and found good blood. We tracked it down to a small draw and the deer tried to go up the other side but could not. When it doubled back on its self it thru Baby off. Baby wanted to keep searching ahead and to the left. After searching for a while I brought her back to the last blood gave her some water to drink and let her settle down. When I put her back on the trail she turned right went about 20 or so yards and started back up the other side turned, came back down went just a little further down in the brush and found the deer.
Congradulations to Carl Christiansen on his first crossbow kill.

i wish I could have used Baby a few times. All I got was racks the next day or week sometimes when shooting deer with a recurve bow.

I love tracking dogs, we have 2 beagles we use, makes me alot less hesitant to shoot a deer now right at dark, cause i have total confidence that our dogs will find the deer.

Hi dbodkin, Baby is a Bavarian Mountain Hound. They are breed in Europe to blood track. They have one purpose and one goal and that is to track wounded animals. There are currently only about 10 in the U.S. at this time.
Baby is from Poland. Dad has a male from Norway and a half sister to Baby. Dan Kendall of Miami has Baby's full brother. He has a house some were out of Macon about an hr. He comes up to hunt for the season and is looking for some work for his dog also.
Good job. It's nice to know that you guys are out there with the dogs to assist.
