I'm Your Huckleberry
Crappy dude! You gonna back at first light? Or work calling in the AM?
Work calling in the AM. While I hate to let it go , I do feel that we put a good effort in last night. The area is all thick swamp grass and thorny vines, not easy to traverse and not easy to find a carcass blind even in the daylight. I knew id the blood didn't end at the deer we were screwed. The we I'm referring to is my dad, he followed me through a the whole tracking process despite not being in the best of health. Deer there tend to jump the river (Shiawassee River) which is pretty wide and fast moving. With the rain there no way we will find sign today. The rain was the killer, if not I would have tried to pick up where we left off but without blood it's a needle in a haystack out there.
I am going to try to sneak out to the range today at lunch and she where I am, obviously something changed since I last shot my muzzleloader....or it was just me...only one way to fins out. I don't want to hunt with it again until I know.
@aksavanaman Good job brother, the looks like a hell of a hunting trip.
