    Comparing the Different Methods of Tracking Deer

    tracking-deer
    You know your arrow flew true, you see your prize deer jump and run, and you feel the hunter shakes set in. After waiting for calmness to return, you know that the true hunt is about to begin. Making the shot is only the beginning, now the work sets in. Your target has run, now you need to verify the hit, and begin to track it down. The last thing you want to do is lose your trophy. There are methods that will help you find your deer and avoid the terrible feeling of losing what you worked hard to obtain.

    Tracking it down

    You know this method; it has been used for centuries. After you have waited long enough to ensure you won’t startle your wounded deer, the first step is take a mental picture of where you shot the deer. Remember that scenery changes as you move closer, so you will want to make certain you have identified precise landmarks. Once you get to the where the deer was hit, you will be able to tell a lot from the blood. If it smells bad, you know you got a gut hit and you will be in for a long tracking. Gut shots take a long time to bleed out. If the blood is pink and frothy your deer has been hit in the lungs and will only run 100-150 yards.

    After you identify the type of hit, you can begin the search. Make certain you stay to the side of the trail in case you need to backtrack. When you find one blood spot don’t move until you find the next. Sometimes the blood can clot and your blood trail will vanish, if this happens you are going to need to look for broken branches, and footsteps. The complexity of tracking down a hit deer has caused more than a few hunters to pull their hair out in frustration. If this has ever happened to you, there is a better way to find and recover your deer.

    The Pro-Tracker System

    One of the best things about the Pro-Tracker system is you can connect it to your favorite arrow. That’s right, if you prefer Easton, Carbon Express, Gold Tip, or Cabela’s Outfitters, your new Pro-Tracker System will screw right into the tip. You will only notice a slightest shift in trajectory, but it is easy to adjust your equipment. The Pro-Tracker system comes with two dummies to allow you to practice without fear of damaging the real equipment. The Pro-Tracker has a transmitter that attaches to the animal’s hide. The handheld receiver can pick up the deer no matter where it runs. You will be able to find your deer with pinpoint accuracy. Since the Pro-Tracker is waterproof, this makes tracking in the rain a breeze. The Pro-Tracker system is a revolutionary method that will help you find your fallen trophy ever time.

TRANSMITTERS & CARRIERS

Transmitter

The Pro-Tracker® Transmitter is a rechargeable, lightweight, water resistant transmitter that disengages from the arrow upon impact; allowing for pass-throughs. The transmitter hooks into the animal’s hide and begins sending Radio Frequency (RF) signals every three seconds for the duration of the battery life (10-12 hours). You will need the Pro-Tracker® Receiver to read and track the signal.

ETHICS

deer huntNot only does the Pro-Tracker® system not interfere with ethical shots, but numerous wounded loss studies have shown just how much it is needed in bowhunting. According to one study done by the Oklahoma Fish and Wildlife Agency, 50% of deer that were shot were never recovered.

There are many reasons why it could become nearly impossible to recover an animal. Sometimes game only bleed internally and don’t leave a blood trail, or flee into impossible terrain. Sometimes the weather takes a sudden turn.

Whatever the reason, the Pro-Tracker® System is designed to overcome these obstacles and recover the animal without detracting from the method in which you choose to hunt. Whether in a tree stand, ground blind, or stalking your favorite game, the Pro-Tracker® System is the one sure method for the ethical recovery of all wounded game.
