My daughter shot a nice buck yesterday it lost a fair amount of blood but we were unable to find it. It got late so this morning we went out to the evergreen trees. We were able to pick up a new blood track and I followed it for quite a ways through the pine trees.

After some time the blood became less and eventually I lost the track. I walked around the exterior of the woods hoping to see signs of him crossing into another woods but was unable to find and more sign.

After about a hour I walked back to where I found the blood this morning and was suprised to find that fresh blood was now on over boot prints almost all the way through the woods. The deer was following my tracks as you could see fresh blood on my tracks.

Has anyone one else had this happen to them? Or is there a reason this might happen?

Try taking 2 people out. Its circling you and keeping your location known. Go out with 2 and set one on stand off to the side of your trail. I have a friend who did this and he was able to take the deer they were tracking.

I agree with what skee said, he's wounded pretty good because he is not leaving this core area, he is just circling when you come through. Get a second with a gun, it will probably happen again if you don't find it dead, they can only lose so much blood.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
