The first hunter we recovered for taught us the lesson of not questioning what opportunities we are given. This story is spot on!

MEAT or MEMORIES? ๐Ÿค”

This is a question each track we take that involves a wait time we ask. This season has come to a new all time high of coyotes being on the tracks in a couple hours but even worse, in the peak of daylight. As soon as that scent hits the woodland floors they are there.

This track was the 3rd we've been on with this family. The 1st deer was gotten to by the coyotes and the meat deemed not salvageable by the processor. The 2nd was a shot that did not need a dog but was a great opportunity for Hoosier to lead the daughter to her first. This one was another first. The son was in his own tree stand with his compound. Dad nearby hunting another tree. A trail camera going and a go pro on our young hunter captured the details the moment of the shot. Immediately we are sent the picture. This first archery buck's exit was at the back. We asked the question really I don't think any dad truly wants to answer. Meat or memories? It was an instant response of meat.

Over the years we've gotten to know this family and how they hunt. Every hunter raises their kids in the woods with different levels of achievement and their approaches. Maybe we're bias because we've gotten to be a party of their text and call list. However, the emphasis on proper wait times, age of the deer, practice, the value of the harvest, education and safety is noticeable when you talk hunting with these young hunter's. Our hunter knew it wasn't the ideal shot. He was also already prepared for the wait after he let the arrow fly. Seriously. As far as we see, these are THE most patient youth we've ever tracked with. Personally I believe it's because they watch their dad do it. The routine of waiting in the stand. The looking at the hit sight. The backing out. The wait. Then effort to recover the harvest even if it takes him until shed season. He will find it. They see that example and follow it without instruction. It's really a phenomenal thing to see and then for us to get to share our knowledge with these youth are shaping these hunters up to be well rounded from hunt to track. We arrived to take on the track and got to watch the go pro footage. I still need to hound dad for.

For all of you who think a deer mule kicks when "smoked" in the heart or lungs. That's not a solid indication. This deer mule kicked and ran off with a liver gut involvement. After confirming the organs we believed to be impacted we proceeded and hoped to beat the coyotes.

Whiskey took off from the hit sight on the line we could confirm from footage into the woods. There was no blood. Dad followed our instructions during the planning process and no sign was there. Jon starts calling out blood roughly 100 yards from the hit. Definitely not a gusher. At some points we would have a distinct trail to follow. Others, where hundreds apart. Then the was beds... and more beds... finally up a hill over a mile into this track laid the deer after 1,100 + yards. Yet again this required more patience. He wasn't done.

Whiskey laid down with the lead tight pointed in the direction of the buck's back behind it. Not barking. No aggression. Just respect and patience. Almost as if he was giving the buck the comfort and security that he was there. The rest of us circled the nearby area and waited in different locations. Our scent in the woods is what we used to detour the coyotes in the event the buck adrenaline would kick in and he leave that bed.

๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿ‘‰ If you ever are on blood and back out, leave an article of clothing on the track to detour coyotes.

Thankfully it didn't take long and he was done. We hope that one day this won't have to be our normal standard of practice to insure a deer isn't eaten alive by predators. The aspect alone that we caught up on lead after waiting proves a coyote would do the same. All we can do until regulations change is stand gaurd to provide the most humane passing as we can within our legal abilities.

Our young hunter got to see the rewards of the wait. Whiskey didn't take long in navigating the untouched track.
It was a proud moment for dad and a memory that'll last a lifetime. Even better, the meals to come where that young hunter will know that he provided the main course. Trust us. We've been there. Meat has to be labeled in the freezer, because they will ask. Is this my deer? There's no better meal served then those these youth have had a hand in.

Congratulations ๐Ÿ‘ to our hunter on his first archery independently harvested deer. Enjoy every meal you've brought from the tree stand. ๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿบ
