Give us the best chance of finding your deer or bear!

Follow these steps after the hit:

If you do not witness the animal expire within view, then leave the area and wait the appropriate time before starting to track.
  »Clearly mark the hit site.
  »Look for and mark any hair found at the hit site.
  »If hunting with a bow, locate and save your arrow if possible.
  »DO NOT walk in the blood trail.

(Unless you want our dogs to track you !)
  »Mark the blood trail as you go.
  »If you jump the deer or bear out of its first bed,

back out to let it bed again.
  » **After jumping the deer the 1st time, you may want to call

Deer Search for advice and help.
  »Try to avoid having a pack of “helpers” tracking the animals' blood and scent all around  the woods.
  »Make sure you have permission from landowners where the deer or bear may have gone.

Deer Search cannot go on posted land without permission!

 

-FIRST ! –

Shots you should NEVER take with a Bow;


*Deer coming straight at you or severely quartering towards you.

*Deer going straight away from you.

*Deer directly under you or within 10ft of your tree stand.

*Running Deer.
