Well Slim is growing fast and has recovered 2 deer since Oct 15th bow season began in Alabama. To make it more special both deer where mine.
First deer was a 50 yard trail and she started great but got side tracked and I had to wait on her to come back to the trail and follow it to the deer. She really liked getting after the deer and I gave her some heart right there on the spot.

two days later I arrowed another doe and had to let it lay up overnight because it was an unfortunate gut shot and I didn't want to push the deer. We went back in the next morning and she sniffed around for awhile before catching a scent in the air and following it about 75 yards to the doe.

She is starting to get the name of the game but does not seem totally focused which I guess is part of dealing with a learning puppy. Anyway, my goal is get her on as many deer recoveries as possible so that she (we) can learn.

Good job! She is still young and she is learning. The more deer that she gets to track, regardless of the length of the track, the more she learns and the more she gets that tracking instilled into her. You are doing a good job with her.

when they do get it, I swear you can hear the "click"

they go from wandering puppy to driven dog seemingly overnight.

good work so far!
