The Lab/Blue Heeler brothers, Dodge like the truck and Royal like the party likker are off to a stellar start. First put Dodge on a quartering away crossbow shot that didn't pass through. No blood. We were worried he'd cold trail a different deer, but once he settled down, he was on it like Red Cloud's bonnet. Found blood about 40 yards in. The deer went a total of about 200 yards through a briar patch and piled up. Dragging the bugger out was the hard part. Next Royal tracked another quartering away bow shot with a decent blood trail. That deer went about 100 yards. We know our dogs aren't the caliber of most of 'em on here, but, we're still learning and having a blast doing it! Big shout out to Mr. Randy Vick without who's advice we never would have progressed this far!
First deer of the year for me. Got this on Berry College. The 6.8 did a mean number on it with a 120g SST. No exit but great blood trail for the 25 feet he ran. Bullet was under skin on far shoulder. Vitals were jelly.
Got this little girl Sat late. I figured she was a good one to try processing myself.
I should remember the deer kill thread. I love to see others successes. Here is mine from 11-05-2016. It was shot chasing does with a .308 at a whopping 25 yards. 203 lbs. dressed 9 pointer and 22.5" spread. Largest buck for me in GA so far but Lord willing it won't be the last!
