Bloodhound

The bloodhound that found your deer (frog22)belongs to my oldest son. I shot a nice buck the day after Christmas but didn't hit the vitals. When I found blood, I also saw that it was a gut shot. I didn't want to push the deer but I was anxious to find the deer. I tracked blood for about 40 yds dropping a white paper about every 5 feet. I jumped two deer about 100 yds in front of me and decided that I needed to back off so I didn't push the deer to far. I called my son in Gonzales and told him I had shot a good buck and asked if he wanted to try his new blood hound out. He said yes and I went back to my camp to wait on him. I was in Centerville Mississippi and my stomach was in knots waiting on him to get there. About 2 hours later he made it to the camp and we went to the woods. I put Buck on the first blood I found and he immediately tracked right on my paper trail. As he was tracking, I was looking for blood but he was moving pretty fast. He stopped at one point and really was sniffing the ground, moving leaves and straw around and my son picked up some pine straw and saw blood. We knew he was on the right trail. We got to a low spot in the woods that had water and Buck sniffed around and went to the east. From that point he struggled to stay on a trail so we decided to go back to the puddle or the starting point to get him back on the trail. My grandson turned to head back with us and spotted my deer. He was only about 50 yards on the other side of the puddle. Had Buck went straigth North instead of East, he would have been right back on the trail. No Pepto Bismol, Malox, anything could have cured my stomach faster than when I laid eyes on that deer. 8 pt, 15 1/2" inside, 180 lbs.

I just recently shot a big ten point through the gut. we found blood and guts throughout the woods but the deer kept crossing creeks and making circles. after 2 days i gave up the search. how long do you think it will be before the buzzards find him? friends tell me that since it has been so cold he wont start smelling yet??? Thanks for your help

gut shot deer
the buzzards should already be on him the next time you shoot one like that back of of him for atleast 6 hours and call me this is what we specialize in. I have recoverd atleast 1/2 dozen gut shot deer this year that they thought was unrecoverable. I have been on 2 30 hour tracks and a 48 hour track this year and found both of them..
