My father, fiance and I were all in camp from December 26 - 29 to hunt whitetails. My father and I were hunting with rifles while my fiance was hunting with a bow. We all saw shooter bucks and plenty of does. My finance could not get a good shot at a shooter buck. My father missed a shooter buck along with a couple of coyotes on the second morning, but he did manage to redeem himself by getting a doe with his fourth shot that morning. As for myself, I missed a doe that same second morning. On the final morning of our hunt, I managed to get a nice 8 point. Two does came by my blind at about 8am with a buck chasing them. It took a while to get him to stop long enough to get a shot off and it was a lousy shot at that. I managed to shoot him through the brisket and out the left shoulder. The deer ran and I only managed to find one drop of blood and a couple splinters of bone. J. Paul, guides Will and Lester, and Rebel (the ultimate tracking dog) came out to look for my buck. Rebel was off as soon as he hit the scent trail. J. Paul, Will and I spent the better part of the next two hours trailing after Rebel who never let off the deer. We finally caught up to Rebel, who had cornered the exhausted buck, after a couple miles. We still aren't sure how that deer managed to run that far with its shoulder as busted up as it was. After a long exhausting morning, I finally had my buck thanks to Rebel, J. Paul and Will. Without Rebel's amazing tracking abilities, I'm pretty sure we would never have found that buck as that one drop of blood at the spot I shot was all we saw. As you can tell, I have an amazing story to go with an amazing trip. We all loved our experience at Pa-Ko and cannot wait to go back again!
