David Domangue shot this real nice eight point with a kicker out of the “number one box” late Friday afternoon in Woodville, MS at Gut-Buster’s hunting club and resort.
David called on the VHF and asked if I could bring Rosette to track the buck because the buck ran into the woods and David wanted the buck to sit a while so it wouldn’t spook if he tracked it right away. We waited about an hour. It was dark by the time we arrived at the food plot of the “number one box”. We found some blood on the edge of the food plot and I put Rosette on it and she took off immediately and made a real nice aggressive track right to the buck. She is starting to understand the prize at the end of the track (deer blood, pulling on the skin, and some liver at the skinning rack). Everyone at the camp site pats her, holds her and rewards her. She’s loving it.
It was about a 100 yard track through thick woods with a hard left and right turn going downhill all the time to a small creek. The blood trail was good, but we had several long stretches without any blood. I am sure we would have found the buck without Rosette’s help, but it was great experience for me and Rosette.
The next day, 18 hours later I took Rosette back to the site we tracked with my son in-law Jeremy (nick name) Jeremiah Johnson, and two grandsons. I put some liver where we found the buck for her reward. We started Rosette in the food plot where we first found the blood the evening before. Rosette tracked the blood trail like the night before and with the same intensity and aggressiveness. She loves to track and I was really pleased with her track 18 hours later. Rosette really enjoyed the liver I put out for her. My two grandsons, Jac-4 and Christian-2, helped us track the blood and when they found some, they yelled “hey Big Poppa blood over here”. Even though we had passed over it I told them great job, which really gave them a feeling of helping Rosette with the track. We are all having lots of fun with Rosette. Thanks Jolanta and John for getting her started.
Thanks David for allowing us to track your buck.
