I know this forum is about hogs and dogs but I wanted post this pic of a recent deer hunt on my property in Shiro, Texas (Grimes County).  On Monday November 10 - the Marine Corps birthday - I took off work to go hunt.  I grabbed my 5 month old Blue Lacy, his name is Ramadi, and we drove to our property.  I left him in the truck while I headed out to my tree stand early morning.  At about 0720 I spotted a nice 8-point buck that was 100 yards away.  It was slightly hazy since it was early but I had a good shot considering I use iron site on my M1A .308.   I hit him and his backside went down.  I watched as he sat on the ground.  I figured I hit his spine since he just collapsed.  About 10 minutes later he stood up and limped into the brush.  i made the short walk back to my truck to grab the dog. 

Long story short, and after Ramadi found the trail with blood and a good scent, we made a few loops since the deer back tracked.  1/2 mile from where I shot the buck - and two hours later - Ramadi was still on the trail and going crazy as the scent got stronger.  Into a clearing he started barking just before the buck stood up in some brush and tried to get away.  I let the dog go, and he went nuts after that buck.  He chased the buck around a pond and cornered it and just kept baying as I approached.  The buck was hurt, it was a hip shot, and it'd lost plenty of blood.  I didn't have my rifle on me since I went onto my neighbors property.  I'd talked to my neighbor before the season started; he had no problem with me tracking a deer on the property but asked that I not bring my rifle during the track.  All's that i had was a K-Bar knife. This deer was cornered but not going anywhere.  Ramadi kept the pressure on as I grabbed its rack.  As it reared up I jammed the knife in the bucks throat.  I forced it's head to the ground and just kept pressure on the knife and antlers. After about 10 minutes it finally stopped breathing.  I had to drag that animal 1/2 mile back to my truck.  It was a crazy but overall I'm just glad that my Blue Lacy tracked it down. 

Dragging that deer back wasn't easy; I stopped about 20 times.  The picture is of my dog and the buck during one of those breaks.
