Well, got a call from a guy Saturday morning that his son had shot a deer North of Graford and he needed a tracking dog. I was in Waco for the holiday so I gave him a couple numbers of some guys that might come help and he called me back that night saying nobody could make it and would I please come after lunch tomorrow.He told me it was his 6 year old sons first buck and he really wanted to recover it. So I headed 2+ hours up the road to Graford after lunch and met with them about 2:15 and headed out to track the deer. 1 1/2 miles and 600ft + in elevation climb straight freakin up later we had him on the ground. You should have seen the boy smiling when we brought back his buck banana banana



I gained about 3 lbs on Thursday and I guarantee I lost it all plus some climbing that hill to get this buck loco_too It was totally worth it but if I never have to chase one up a briar covered hill like that again I will be just fine smile

And a Ribeye or ten to txvarminter. Great story and a heck of a stand-up thing for you to do.
