Tracking Deer

Recommended Posts

What is the name of the spray that is used to spray on the ground and reveal any blood that may be there. Does anyone know how well this works and about what it costs. Also, where can one get this. Would they have it at Gander Mountain or Sportsman's Warehouse. Thanks for any info, I have a trophy buck that is laying in the woods that I lost his blood trail. i need to be able to find this deer.

sorry, should explain it a little better. put the peroxide in a spray bottle, squirt what you think might be blood and it will bubble up. go get him...

Just a thought but if you added a food coloring to your peroxide it would it mimick the store purchased products.

Yes, the county mutt will find it faster than any human!

Thanks for the good advice everyone. I will try the peroxide. I also arranged to bring my brother's yellow lab with. Here in lies the problem. I shot this deer last Sunday, I tracked till dark but had to drive four hours to make school the next morning. So my first chance to get back up there will be this Saturday. I feel horrible that even if I find the deer that the meat will be unusable, but I desperately want to find the deer being from what I saw when I shot that he very well could be a ten-pointer. So my question is, being it will almost be a week after I shot the deer, will the dog be able to pick up the scent and also would the hydrogen peroxide work on dried blood that has been sitting for a week. Thanks for the help everyone, I will post a picture if I find him.

Dog wont be able to track a week old trail but it might smell a bloated carcass.
Look for ravens.
I think if you find that deer with a spray bottle now, you most likely could have found him with a flashlight the evening you shot him.

I you have no blood trail anymore and it has been a week, you can forget the dog. Go to the last spot you had blood, and start looking from there. Check out the area for water, wounded deer head for water. If there is no water near, then head for the thickest cover around. It is a shot in the dark, but if you think you put a killing shot on this deer, putting the time in to find it is a must.
