    Hey folks!!

    Cliff here (AKA Outdrzman)... I have a high-end, working bred Yellow lab who has been deer tracking for 3 years now. I bought her with tracking in mind, and have trained her to do this since she was a tiny puppy. Not sure exactly how many recoveries we have together, but it's a pretty nice list. We've had some failures too - that's the nature of helping on tracking jobs.

    I live just north of Columbus, OH and have a farm in Athens county. This time of year it's tough to know for sure where I'm going to be at any given time (home/farm). That being the case, it's best just to call and see if I can make it out to you. I will usually limit my drive time to 1 hour. I do not charge for tracking, though I do ask for gas money. Some folks also throw in a "tip"... that's very much appreciated but is completely up to you.

    Before you call:
    1. I need you to understand this: I do this as a hobby. I have a regular day job and am not able to take off for a tracking run in the middle of a work day. It's ok if you call during the day, but I want you to know what to expect when I answer.

    This may seem obvious, but I need to make another point here: I had a guy get very beligerant with me last year because I wasn't able to drive to Cininnati at 10am on a Wednesday. After the attitude, I told him "no" but he kept calling me... so I blocked his number. Then he had the nerve to have his buddies call me also! This went on for more than 48 hours, including at night. Please don't do this, it makes me not want to help. Just remember that you are asking a near stranger for free help and we'll be off to a great start. :coolgleamA:

    2. I need to talk to the person who took the shot. I will ask about your hunting setup, the deer's behavior before/after the shot, what you have done to try and recover the animal, etc. Please don't call me and ask me to call someone else.

    3. Time matters! The sooner we get there, the better the odds of recovery. Waiting 48-72 hrs before calling me stacks the odds against us all.

    4. When you realize you need help, quietly back out of there and call me right away. Please stay out of the blood trail. Don't get 10 buddies to scour the woods *before* you call me. This just means you're likely to cross the deer's trail and then track that scent around the woods.

    5. I need to have permission to go onto the land where we will be tracking. It's a firm rule of mine, not to mention being the law! I expect you to tell me when we are crossing property boundaries.

    OK, so if you're still reading - you're my kind of hunter! My cell number is: 614-570-one six seven zero. **This is to be used for requesting deer tracking assistance only***

    glad to see you back on here

    I will vouch for you saying your a nice guy and your dog does try , in my case it was hard with all the rain/snow that fell

    But sure if it wasn't for that things could have been different

    did find the one buck in late season by a neighbor, we were very close, just some how missed it!

    Cliff you summed it up nicely. The same applies for me when you call me to track. I spared nothing including money and time on my dog including training and know the best chances of finding the deer you shot are to call me and not have all your friends and realitives tramping blood all over the place within a reasonable time period. When you hunters step on blood our dogs follow where you walk, because you are now laying a new blood trail on the ground for the dog to follow which takes the focus away from the real track. A dog works hard following these lines and can tire a dog out early in warm weather. I am confident that if you put a fatal hit on your deer, my dog will find your buck if you listen to what cliff said about staying out of the blood and calling as soon as you can. 513-526-3806. I also ask the reaction and shot placement of the deer. Cliff I have had someone call me about someone elses shot deer many times and it makes me wonder if maybe their tagging out two bucks, one with their tag and one with someone elses. Did you get your lab from the J J line down in Mississippi. Tara plantation ?http://trackingwoundeddeer.blogspot.com/

    Willing to help whenever. I live in the Cincy area during the week and usually get out of work around 7pm, but spend a lot of my weekends hunting in Hocking Co/ Logan area. I have a lab that i've been working with for tracking purposes and was a great tool on 3 tracks last season....send me a message for phone number. Good luck!
