Learn how to recover all of the deer you shoot by reading blood and hair sign, with the help of a dog and by keying in on the presence of scavenging birds. Valuable advice is provided about determining the type of hit, deciding when to begin tracking and distinguishing between the tracks of wounded and healthy deer. This book is a valuable reference for all deer hunters, but especially bowhunters since trailing arrowed deer is part of every successful hunt.
Each chapter discusses hits with both gun and bow and arrow inflicted on specific parts of a deer’s anatomy, with numerous successful accounts of how deer wounded in that manner were recovered. Other chapters cover how to determine if your shot hit or missed a deer, where your shot connected in cases when a hit is made, blood trailing basics, using a dog to recover your deer, nonfatal hits and what to do when you encounter a deer wounded by someone else.
