    Let me see if I have the anti-Midas touch and can destroy this thread as well, though. Remember that I mean well...

    Let's not hijack this thread. I will try to PM/post to Alex what I see on my side if others will please do the same.

    We might have to put up the bat light. Alex is probably wrangling chickens or something.

    You broke it. Can't see any way to respond to last music post. I did respond to previous music post but it's not showing. I think it has to do with bits and bytes or something like that.

    LOL See if you can add to the music thread ... My last post didn't catch my text and now it seems locked up for edits or replies... I don't think Alex is some type of commie ... "Change my mind ..." :wink

    I see the problem now: Dachshunds like to trail in the shade. (Ref.: Old joke about Germans ... Don't make me explain it ... LOL )

    I shot the buck around 7:00 AM and he stood about 50 yds away in the brush for about an hour. He never laid down, just had his tail flicking and his head hung down. From the time and reaction I knew it wasn't good, so after the buck finally moved off, heading into the thick clearcut, I got down and left. Never even went over to look for blood where he was standing for so long, I just found my arrow and left. It had what I'll call 'regular' colored red blood on it. I went back in around 1:00 PM, 6 hours later, and found decent blood where he had been standing but the blood trail petered out at the logging road that parallels the thick clearcut. I knew he had crossed the logging road and went in there but couldn't see a blood trail. I decided then to try and get a dog tracker. I went home, spent an hour trying to find someone but they all were busy with other calls or didn't feel like helping. Finally called one last guy at 5:00 PM and he said he could help. I said can we do it tomorrow morning (Sunday) but he said no, he had to work in the morning, we needed to do it right away. So I met up with him at the trail around 6:00 PM or so it was nice and dark by then. I was thinking it was going to be a real dog, bloodhound, black lab, something cool. It was a wired haired dachshund. In my mind I was thinking there's no way this little dog is going to make it in there or even be able to find a deer. It was a 1 1/2 mile walk back to where I had shot the deer, I think we started the tracking around 7:00 PM. The dog got on the track and followed the deer from the spot where he had been standing so long out to where I'd last seen him ready to cross the logging road. But each time we hit the logging road the dog wanted to walk up or down the road and not cross it. Probably was picking up the scent from my feet after my failed tracking attempt and me walking up and down the road looking for blood. So we'd start over from the beginning, and each time he would follow the buck perfectly out to where I had last seen him, so I knew he was on the right scent. Finally I asked the tracker if he could force the dog to cross the logging road because I was sure the buck had done that. That's when the real tracking began, probably after 8:00 PM until we got the trail untangled and were making real headway. I told you it is a long story. :wink

    That site was creepy. Making your own energy drink from urine and how to use chicken manure for explosives. Stuff about bunkers and making secret hideaways, alligator moats and booby traps. I'm pretty sure Alex was/is the uni-bomber.

    2 years ago it was a deflection and a gut shot. Never did find the buck even though I spent the rest of the season and a good bit of the off season looking. Last year I just made a bad shot, the pin went low just as I shot. He was quartering away and from the evidence and how he reacted, I believe it was a low liver/1 lung hit. Shot him at 7:00 AM on the last morning and the dog tracker and I called it quits at around 11:00 PM that night. It is really a long story and I doubt anyone else on here cares to hear it. Hell, I don't even want to relive it again. Interesting note though, we did jump the buck after the dog circled him about 3 times. He was in the super thick overgrown clearcut, lots of mountain laurel, saplings, white pine, the stuff you can't walk through without getting all tangled up, laying in the middle of a pile of old logs. It was 9:00 PM, 14 hours after I hit him. We had liver blood and lung blood, bright pink with some bubbles, 50 yds from where I hit him, but even with the time we gave him, he had plenty of life in him to jump up in front of us and go over the top of the hill. The dog followed him from there 300 more yds according to OnX Maps, but it was so thick it was a 2 hour chore. We both decided we could be following this buck all night so the tracker said come back a week later and look for buzzards. I went back many times but it is so thick you can hardly see 5 yds. I never found anything after that night. The big take away for me was, don't believe everything you might read about how long a deer can live with a liver hit. This one had survived 14 hours and still had the strength to evade us. ....and I was super impressed with the ability of a tracking dog. Ain't no way I could have followed a buck in that stuff and find where he was laying, but the dog did. If you ever have a marginal shot, back off and call a dog tracker. No sense wasting time, polluting the area with deer scent from your feet.

    LOL ... Better hoard the merch while you can ... The suits are caving fast. Just a year or three ago, Dan Snyder was saying they would never change their name. Well, never say "Never." In a gutless move, we're heading toward the "Washington Weasels." Aside from the Bikini Team, I don't understand the attraction. It's a collectivist sauna culture. Oh, wait ... :wink Have you considered Estonia, or Poland? ... Both bastions of freedom... :grin: LOL .... Did you get that stat from Garrison Keillor? :wave:
