As hunters we often get caught up in all of the preparations, details,and practice required leading up to a shot opportunity. We tend to forget to educate ourselves on the skills required after a shot is made. Blood trailing game successfully is an invaluable tool to have as a hunter. Poor shot placement is going to happen at some point in your hunting career. It is important to know that blood trailing is not about being able to spot the smallest drop of blood on leaves. It’s about knowing what each drop of blood means and how it dictates your next move, whether that be pursue, wait, or back out.
In this podcast we cover valuable material, explaining what the common findings along a blood trail mean. In addition, we break down the common shot locations, heart shot, double lung, high shoulder, liver, stomach, hind quarters, and describe what each blood trail will leave, how long to wait before trailing the deer, and pace at which they should be followed. Tracking lethally shot game does not always result in a recovery. Knowing when and how to take up the trail determines if and when you will recover the animal. It is important to educate yourself on post harvest techniques. Be confident in your knowledge of how a wounded deer will react so you can wrap a tag around the prize.
