Great job on the recovery it was worth the effort I would fry up that heart for the dog for his keen work.
Not sure what cause the arrow to kick directions perhaps one blade cought a rib at a funny angle causing a direction change or perhaps the deer started to turn at the shot we most likely will never know take pride in the end result.
He has a interesting rack buy the way pretty cool.
What broad head you shooting ?

The g 5 is a good head but only getting one lung you were lucky too recover it looks like the shot was a bit far back to start.
I think you did a great job on recovery as I have searched for many deer after dark and it is never easy or fun while searching until you see the white belly laying their, and the distance that deer went I bet it was a great feeling seeing it !
Congratulations on your harvest.

Congrats for you and the dog.
I have a standard poodle and believe it or not it is also a great tracker you sure should take the little bugger to the nearest pet shop and treat him.

That was my thought too when i first found it. Field dressing it though the liver was intact. That was one of the dog's treats - he got the liver and the heart. I am quite certain he enjoyed the recovery more than i did.

Congrats on the good recovery.
Where I hunt 800 yards is a long way and might as well be miles. How do you end up with a dog that retrieves like this? Is it a natural thing or training? I took a shot at one 2 years ago and it didn't bolt like it had been hit but I found no blood but with out a tracking dog I had no way to try to find it...

800 yards is a long way at my place as well - swamp and thick bush. The dog is mostly a natural. I think it is the Walker in him as they are born and bred to track and tree coons. He has a really good "hot" nose but if the trail is more than a day old it is problematic.

I had an Australian Sheppard I trained to track deer I saved blood from a harvested deer when gutting and I would go out on weekends in the morning and lay out a sent trail with some blood on a rag and string and a sprits from a spray bottle once in a while , After sever hours I would bring out Dakota my Aussie and put him on my fake trail, I started out short and easy worked up to longer time, longer trails and less scent he never had much trouble .
I gave him nice treats and great praise after every run, I had to mark the trail with Toilet paper every so often setting up the scent trail so I could follow it but it easier than i thought it would be .
Dakota found several deer for sure that would have been lost for me , for a friend and I used to put Dakotas "card" on hunters cars until I got sick of getting haled out of my house 2 hours after dark on work nights to find deer but it was an experience I can remember fondly of Dakota he would be so full of burs and mud but smiling the biggest dog smile I was glad i went through it.

Great tale and fantastic recovery!
Be damn proud of your fur kid!!

Mine sadly wondered off this spring.
He had collected well over a dozen "lost" deer in our heavy forests over his span.
Never failed.
They are an incredible asset, and a fine family member.

Congrats to you both! :thumbup:

Cheers,
Nog
