This deer was shot on the Red Hills Wounded Warrior hunt yesterday afternoon in Decatur Co. As I arrived at the hit site and was collaring up Pete (he's named after a warrior who also got a great buck yesterday) the guides called and said they had recovered the deer after a long sight track. Another neck shot that we were lucky to recover. Congrats on a great buck, Sam.

Reba tracked this Fla. buck today, on lead. He had gone over 900 yards and a pack of dogs had eaten the hams last night. There was no blood after 200 yards but Reba never missed a beat. She is healed up from the buck goring her on New Year's.

Another great Fla. 10 point that Reba tracked and found. I like to wait 6 hours if possible before tracking a known gut shot deer. Good thing we did on this one as it appeared to have just died when we found it. Congrats to the hunter who knew to back out and not push the deer or booger up the track by grid searching the area or putting another dog on it before we got there. Reba's scars are visible from when a buck gored her on New Year's eve.

We tracked one wounded turkey this season. Now it will be training lines and swimming and fishing until September.

Hot Summer Training

While everyone is fishing and dreaming about deer season, we have been out getting ready for the tracks to come this fall.

Here is Bear Dog training on an 1,800+ training line.

idahomike lopez opening day

Had a great,exciting and scarey opening day! Took three calls,got all three put on the tailgate.first one was scarey.lucy tracked a buck to a big pond,she lead us to the bank,then she jumped in and started swimming down the bank,with us following,I looked up and here comes a big gator steaming rt for her,I start screaming at her to come,hollering he's gonna get her!!! He didn't!whew!.took Lucy All the way around the pond she didn't indicate that the deer had come out. I told the hunters I know for sure that buck is in that pond,guess they believed me because.one of them went home and came back with a canoe,the hunter paddled over to we're the gator had attacted lucy.sure enough his buck was there in the shallows,hunter was pretty happy,to say the least!!!
By the way the gator had chewed off the bucks testicles.

She missed a doe sat evening and was very upset and didn't want to hunt anymore so they packed up Sunday morning and started home but her dad made a great decision to turn around and come back and we worked with her and put her in 1 of my stands where I had seen a few deer She made a great shot!!! No pass thru so we looked a bit then backed out and called Mike !!!! Pic says the rest !!!!:)
