A Pursuit of Bullwinkle


Recommended Posts

Such a long ways on our place in Mo we've gotten 2 exceptional bucks. My pal Ernie and I each picked one to seek after this bowseason. Pics of the one I picked are posted in our group string. Ernie picked this NT buck which, at the time we thought had 16 focuses falling off the fundamental beam...turned out to be 17 places (principle outline 12 point with 5 NT focuses). Ernie named him Bullwinkle.

Since we hadn't gotten any pics of him since July 31st we were extremely concerned EHD had gotten him. Up to this point we've found 7 dead dear on our place. Monday evening would have been our keep going chase on this excursion. Ernie chose to chase a stand we call the Rookery stand on the grounds that a shooter 10 point we'd likewise gotten on cams in Bullwinkle's turf had appeared before dim 2 days ahead of schedule and the breeze was at last right. Ernie has seen many deer then, at that point, low and see Bullwinkle appears. A brief glance with his binocs and he knows. Bullwinkle comes closer from over his left shoulder and stops to work a scratch and lick branch at ~20 yards...no shot that way. Then, at that point, he works into a shooting path toward a 6 point. Ernie sets his bolt free and hits Bullsinkle high behind the shoulder. Now...where he hit didn't end up being spot on yet as Bullwinkle avoided Ernie could see a lump hanging with regards to Bullwinkle's stomach area...turned out to be digestive organs.

Subsequent to talking about his hit with Ernie persuaded he had gotten lung we held up 2 hours and took up following him. Blood was great at first however at that point inadequate. We lost blood at ~150 yards. Around 10:30 we chose to take up following toward the beginning of the day. The following morning we tracked down more blood 40 yards past the last blood and followed him another 1/8 mile to 2 beds ~20 yards apart...then lost blood in tall CRP grass. Around early afternoon we talked it over and chose to find a hunting dog. A few calls gave us 2 options...we were advised the best person to get is Tracker John. We reached out to John and he showed up around 5:00 Tuesday evening. We took John and his most established Bloodhoud (Jesse) to a spot around 75 yards before we lost blood. However, after Jesse got the aroma she wanted off she went...over slope and dale...OMG...working excessively quick for me to keep up...did my best. Incidentally Jesse got off the path. At the point when John acknowledged she was off the path (yes he can guess what he canine might be thinking) we punched out ~10:30. We chose to take up the path again toward the beginning of the day near where Jesse had tracked down the last blood somewhere around 1/2 mile past where we tracked down it.

Next morning I chose to wait since my bum knee was harming from the previous evening and left Tracker John and Ernie take up the all out pursue. Ernie and I had radios so I got a pass up blow bookkeeping. Subsequent to following over slope and dale again for ~2.5 miles they came to a spot and Jesse beginning wimpering. John told Ernie...dead or alive your buck is had relations with before us...sure enough a couple of steps later Bullwinkle stands up and runs off leisurely. John tells Ernie...Next time we hop him we'll know yet he was almost certain then they'd recuperate Bullwinkle. Around 20 minutes after the fact the see Bullwinkle remaining in a rivulet inclining toward the bank. They approach and Bullwinkle gradually climbs the bank and strolls off. After a brief delay they take up the track and catch Bullwinkle standing up again and gradually strolling off through the timber...then make camp once more. I get the call to bring Ernie's bow to him so he can sneak in and polish him off. When I show up 45 minutes after the fact we as a whole methodology Bullwinkle and he was at that point dead in his last bed.

All absolute Tracker John said the following position covered ~5 miles. The shot...well further back than thought and the bolt seemed to have redirected off a bone and sliced through the stomach further back and on a similar side as the section point. Odd no doubt. Here's Ernie and Bullwinkle...17 points...Gross score 178 1/2". He has a 3/4" kicker point too that I didn't count.

BTW...Tracker John was taking video film during the following position. Turns out he's shooting following film for a show he's accomplishing for Field and Stream. He got Ernie's approval to utilize the recording. You might find the opportunity to see some of it.
