I've received two calls for tracking so far this season. The 1st was a trail about 18 hours old. We gave it hell and tracked for about 3 hours before she lost it and started running in circles. The hunter made a high bow shot and left no blood.
The 2nd was another high bow shot, but left some blood here and there after about 60 yards. I was quite impressed as I put her on a hoof print and watched her tear off into the woods trailing. The trail was about 3 hours old. Rosie had no problem with this one...unfortunately for the hunter, it was still alive. The deer started to walk, obviously injured, so we backed out. I told the hunter I would come back in the evening if he needed me. He never called, I assume he found the deer in the same area.

Here's the thing John, I had her on a 30 foot lead she got to running and I let go...couldn't keep up with her. Maybe I should've held on. Any how she got wrapped on a tree. She might have bayed it had that not happened. Any tips or critiques are welcomed from everyone.

I think she would have tried to bay it had she been able to get to the deer . I know some people that work on leash will turn the dog loose when they have seen the deer . I would not do it with out a tracking collar, Its great that you are getting to work her.I know she must be having a blast if you need a hand any time give me a call during the week I am almost always around .

If you feel OK working your dog of lead, get you a tracking collar and I think ya'll would have caught the 2nd deer. It sounds like she had the deer and with the deer just walking off, she would have bayed it up. Alot of areas you can not run of lead due to small tracks of land, but when ever you get the chance to just turn her loose, let her go!
The first deer, if hit in the void spot, is probably eating corn today. That is a tough track any day especially that old.
Just my opinion on this, everyone has their way of doing things. Sounds to me like Rosie is ready to go!!

If you are in an area where you could cut her loose, let her go once you all see or hear the deer take off. I would invest in a tracking collar or even a bell. Be ready to slip on and finish off the deer if she stops and bayes it....once they catch a few live ones a switch clocks in their head and they take it to another level..all good advise from others

Good Job Rosie! jtslush where did they bow hunters find your number. I am assuming the Texas blood trackers website? Reason I was asking I haven't had a call yet. A lot of bow hunters down here must be droppin em dead. :))

Congrats on the track!

It may have been a blessing in disguise - some young dogs will get a little freaked out by a live deer before they get some experience under their belt.

Glad to hear Ms. Rosie is doing well :)
