Tracking wounded turkey with a dog

We got an interesting e-mail from Dean Muthig, a United Blood Trackers member from Wisconsin.

Here's a turkey we recovered with Stella my GSP/GWP mix. Turkey went 300 yards after being shot with a bow. It was shot just under the anus, and arrow came out between the breastbone and wing in the breast (must have just missed the heart and lungs). The bird buried itself under a blowdown. Our first turkey track and recovery!

Wisconsin regulations allow for tracking of turkeys in the spring even though you can't hunt turkeys with dogs. Details are included below:
