Tracking Deer

Recommended Posts

What is the name of the spray that is used to spray on the ground and reveal any blood that may be there. Does anyone know how well this works and about what it costs. Also, where can one get this. Would they have it at Gander Mountain or Sportsman's Warehouse. Thanks for any info, I have a trophy buck that is laying in the woods that I lost his blood trail. i need to be able to find this deer.

sorry, should explain it a little better. put the peroxide in a spray bottle, squirt what you think might be blood and it will bubble up. go get him...

Just a thought but if you added a food coloring to your peroxide it would it mimick the store purchased products.

Yes, the county mutt will find it faster than any human!

Thanks for the good advice everyone. I will try the peroxide. I also arranged to bring my brother's yellow lab with. Here in lies the problem. I shot this deer last Sunday, I tracked till dark but had to drive four hours to make school the next morning. So my first chance to get back up there will be this Saturday. I feel horrible that even if I find the deer that the meat will be unusable, but I desperately want to find the deer being from what I saw when I shot that he very well could be a ten-pointer. So my question is, being it will almost be a week after I shot the deer, will the dog be able to pick up the scent and also would the hydrogen peroxide work on dried blood that has been sitting for a week. Thanks for the help everyone, I will post a picture if I find him.

Dog wont be able to track a week old trail but it might smell a bloated carcass.
Look for ravens.
I think if you find that deer with a spray bottle now, you most likely could have found him with a flashlight the evening you shot him.

I you have no blood trail anymore and it has been a week, you can forget the dog. Go to the last spot you had blood, and start looking from there. Check out the area for water, wounded deer head for water. If there is no water near, then head for the thickest cover around. It is a shot in the dark, but if you think you put a killing shot on this deer, putting the time in to find it is a must.

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
