We wrote about Cheri Faust's Danika (FC Danika vom Nordlicht TD SE) recently. She is having an incredible field trial season - she has seven first places and four Absolute wins in 19 trials. But this is not all! In the last week she has recovered two deer for Wisconsin hunters.
Cheri writes: "This deer was an 8-pointer that was shot the first time at 7:30 Saturday morning (one lung, diaphragm and liver) and then a second time in the neck 6 hrs later. He was recovered at 4:00 p.m. 250 yds from where the second shot was made. The only blood we had was at the start in some marsh grass. We crossed a green alfalfa field then worked along the edge of a standing corn field. Danika made a 90 degree turn into the corn, went in 8 rows, and made another 90 degree turn to the deer.
This was a 9-pointer that was gutshot Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. and recovered 800 yrds from the hit site at noon on Thursday. We had blood for the first 50 yds and then nothing until one spurt of blood on the trail in hardwoods next to where the deer was found in.
Both hunters were very happy having their deer recovered, and I was pretty happy with my dog!"
