650+ Brad, heavier than I usually use but worked great for short range. Just bad drop off after 18 yards or so. Ya Sister done really good, got off a little a few yard into it but finely figured out what I wanted her to find, done even better on the second deer, hope to get her on another one or 2 before the season is over.  ;)

thanks Pappy,, i just love tracking dogs,, did quite a bit when I lived in Tenn,, my neighbor would come and get her to track too,, I shot a deer last year,, with a heavy arrow,, i had a quiver full of arrows and just picked the one that shot the best for my #1 arrow,, had a downward shot ,, went throught top of shoulder and out the bottom,, well when I got home I thought I might weigh that arrow,, was 700 grains,, I was only shooting bout 50#,, but it worked great as close range,, I hadnt practiced much so was not going to shoot more than 15 anyways,,,  I am sure you dog gonna do great,,,, they love to find a deer,, I think they can tell how much we like it too,, they can feel how excited we are,, so they have a double motivation to do good,, :)

I know what you mean Brad, I use to have Red Bones and they love to track, I tracked for 7 years with Old Dan , he was the best, if the Deer died he would find it, no questions, it takes a while to learn to trust the dog but once they get it and you get it, it is great.  ;) :) I went with the Beagle this time because I am getting to old to have a Red Bone drag me around through the woods and thickets. You have to have them on a leash in TN. to be legal and I don't want my dog out running on the loose anyway. :) The heavy arrows do a great job for sure. I only shoot about 50 lb also and the arrow all but the hide penetrated the off shoulder, of course as I said you give up some distance but I don't do this to see how far I can shoot them, I do it to see how close. ;)

Ya I had the creek thing happen when Old Dan was young, maybe a year old. The deer when right down the middle of the creek for 75 yards or so. It took him 3 passes across the creek to figure it out, after that he would almost stop when he came to a creek crossing and get them big lips and noise right on top of the water and mover very slow across. I thought a few times he was going to drowned himself, but they never tricked him again at a creek crossing. Man the memories I have from them tracks. We probably tracked over 100 deer over the seven years I had him. It was a very very sad day for me and Beau when I had to put him down. :(

Great shot! Nothing like watching a tracking dog work.
