Pete Osterman arrows a great Minnesota public land buck, and after the blood trail runs dry he calls in a dog tracker to finish the job. We then head south for a throwback hunt with Mark Melotik as he finds himself in the thick of some crazy Kansas rut action.
As discussed by Osterman, the HuntStand Trace Tool is ideal for keeping track of your path as you’re blood-trailing deer. It’s easy to get disoriented on a blood trail, especially when you’re stuck in thick cover or operating after daylight. And it’s critically important to minimize impact on a blood trail if you might need to enlist a tracking dog for the recovery.
