ID:	42705Whilst out on a training track last night I got a call
    a local guy had lost a Roe Buck
    sure he had hit it .. But could not find any signs at the shot site
    as I was only 15 mins away
    i said I would come look right away

    at the shot site could find nothing
    so decided to try Storm on it
    few seconds later Storm took a line with vigour which I knew he was on track
    thou it was not the direction the guy said the deer headed
    after about 80m's
    we bumped the buck out of a thicket
    Storm jumped back at the noise and commotion
    we were or atleast Storm was less than 3m away
    no shot available at the running deer
    decision to carry on the track was made, as the direction the buck headed was into open fields and crops
    Storm took a minute or so to work out what to do and he now wanted to track on
    even more so he took the line the buck went
    as we cleared a ridge the buck could be seen slowly moving along the field hedge
    to far for a free hand shot
    as we tracked on , Storm now had a visual and his attention became more focused as he seemed to of worked out what he was tracking
    we got about 120m's away and decided a shot was on
    as the buck was stood in cover looking at us
    shot taken and the bucks head dropped
    i knew I had hit but not enough to drop it
    The buck now moved slightly as I reloaded and a chest shot taken
    buck ran out of sight but I knew the shot was good
    Storm now even more excited at the 2 shots .. sniffed at the rifle , then with encouragement to track on
    was back on line
    we reached the place the buck was stood when shots taken
    few secs to work out another shot site and off into some bushes .. 20 metres in and buck recovered
    Well done that man for making that call
    after looking at the UKDTR website ... Then storing my number incase
    taking the time to ring me on that basis has made it a good night for him
    for me and for tracking in general
    only glad I could help and give Storm the work he is being trained for
    a potentially lost beast recovered
    it's we do it

    As I said last night my friend well done on the first of many recoveries for storm,
    as Alan said its good people are picking up the phone when needed,
    things can only move forward now for UKDTR and that has to be good for deer welfare.

    Nice one, good effort, he must be proud as punch!
    The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

    Thank you for all the positive comments

    not all tracks are perfect
    and not all situ's are perfect
    this was as much a learning curve for me as it was for the gentleman who called me out
    watching the young dog work made my night
    and the smiles and man hugs from the caller also installed my faith in why I am doing this

    just a cull animal that was lost

    getting those calls to keep coming that will benefit all in the long run
    good day all round
