    A guest shot this stag at 8.45pm on Thursday, first of the season. It ran off after taking the bullet from a 270 in the shoulder (so much for this so called 'pinning deer') not that that was the deliberate intention, just where it struck. It took off and couldn't be found on initial search and no blood or hair could be seen in the poor light.

    I went back about an hour later with the dog and she had her first track in the dark with me wearing a head-torch.

    She found a small piece of bone on the track and then indicated hair on the top of a rabbit netting fence and was desperate to get over. The stag was lying about 20m further on in cover. It had ran no more than 100m. It went 140lbs on the hook before the head and cape came off as the guest is having it shoulder mounted, definitely an older stag past its best but good weight in the antler. Should be a nice trophy given the colours of its coat, sorry as the night shot does not really show that...

    Very pleased with her. Can't claim these tracks are difficult for her, more interesting as I am learning with her, never having had a scenthound but luckily I have a few very experienced friends to keep me right.

    what she is very good at is stalking with her. Walks well to heel and stops and sits without command when I stop to spy, indicates deer in front very well with a raised head and obvious alertness suddenly. Needs to grow up a bit though as still a lot if puppy attitude in her!

    More from the point of view it was at night Jez and that's a knew experience for her. We were confident the stag would be dead otherwise it would have waited to the morning, ruined carcass or not...
