In John's words:
Joe and Marlene Mason came up from Kentucky to pick up a pup on Sunday. While they were here I had a call about 30 miles away, which gave me an opportunity to show Joe how an experienced dog works. There was absolutely no blood beyond the hunter’s point of loss at 100 yards. Joeri followed the easy, five hour old scent line 300 yards to the button buck. It was gut shot with an exit wound in the bottom of the belly. It was easy for a dog, but without blood it was impossible for the hunter and his buddy, who had searched for three hours. It was a nice opportunity to show Joe how easy “blood tracking” is!
