Blood tracking deer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Even deer that have been hit by a good projectile from a suitable caliber in the heart lung area can run some distance before collapsing.

It’s always good to find blood in this quantity and color after you have taken a shot!

If you come across this amount of lung blood it is not going to be far before you find the animal.

Sometimes you can find deer tracks interspersed with the blood trail. This should make your tracking task easier.
