Thread: never be afraid /ashamed to pick up the phone

    never be afraid /ashamed to pick up the phone

    just back in from a recovered roe doe track with good friend Ben c
    earlier this afternoon just before last light I had taken a shot at a roe doe
    from a highseat at around 150 yds mark overlooking a clearfell
    good reaction to shot saw it run left handed and dissapear into woodland
    went to strike spot found quite alot of blood bit of lung also bit of liver
    sent my gwp off to find it but despite a good look no deer .
    the light was gone now so decision time go back to truck for torch and keep
    looking or return in the morning first light to find it eaten out by badgers
    also the risk of suffering if not allready dead which I was sure it was by my
    findings at shot site .
    I decided to call a good friend with a youngish gwp BEN C
    he came over we proceeded to the shot site and his dog took a strong line
    in another direction but nothing found so we returned to shot site again
    and i sent him off in the direction which i saw the deer take off
    I stayed quite close looking for blood leading off from the strike spot
    ben returned after no luck when on the second trail when his dog found a bit
    of blood lower down from the shot site ben and his dog followed this new trail
    for about 30 yards i was tagging on behind with my torch and spotted the deer
    about five yards to the left of the dog i told ben and we let the dog follow the trail
    onto the dead deer one relived stalker and one proud dog owner to say the least
    on gralloching and inspection bullet had hit slight bit of lung/ liver and bottom of
    heart deer had run in total about 30 yds .
    as stated in title not ashamed of having to call out a friend with his dog
    just relived i can sleep easy tonight and deer not suffering unfound .

    regards pete .
