little sign tracking tip

Postby mnslayer » Thu Nov 04, 2010 11:04 am

looks like another season without snow for open rifle season, makes for harder time tracking.
if you don't have a good blood trail, staying on wounded deer can be difficult. try this when looking for sign look 20 to 30 yards in front of you look for a trail of darker wet leaves. fall is usally a drier season and the leaves are dry on top but if you turn them over they are usally wet. when a deer walks through these leaves they flip over making a path that can be followed if you look for it. follow the path looking for the smallest blood and hair sign. has always worked for me hope you can use it.

very great tip, i use that in my bags of tricks.. also when tracking make a note to yourself where the thickest thicket is or even a water source, a wounded deer will always travel towards one of these.. also 95% of the time will be downhill..
