Fritz’s Successful Illinois Track

Derek of Illinois owns and tracks with his dog Fritz. Fritz has been having a great tracking season this year. Fritz came out of our B-Litter in 2011. Here’s his story of a beautiful Illinois buck track and recovery.

Derek wrote: Sunday afternoon I got a call from a local guy who films all his hunts for ‘Whitetail Explorer TV’ on the Sportmans Channel.  While filming his Sunday morning hunt he made a not so great gut shot on a monster. He wanted to give the deer 12-14 hours before trailing and asked if Fritz could help. I had to work today so I told him we could try when I got off work at 430pm. He said he would look for the deer in the morning and let me know.

30 1/2 hours after the shot we took up the track, pouch shot to boot. The deer ran 150 yards, left no blood the last 100 yards, made a large circle cutting his original trail and Fritz nailed the track to find the prize! We will see if he makes the Sportmans Channel on this track?

Congratulations Derek and Fritz. Nice job!

I have a friend in Idaho that is expecting a litter of pups from his bitch Dossie.  Dossie came out of our D-Litter. Edd and his wife own, and run a hunting lodge in Idaho. They are experienced and excellent handlers. If you are interested in one of these pups and would like more information please contact:

Sage (Sage Von Riggan Hibbs SW) will be 5 months old in about a week. I kept her from our last breeding. She has a great temperament along with a really good nose. Here are a couple pictures of her enjoying the fall leaves.

I received this picture of another successful deer track in Alabama involving a recent F-Litter pup named Jen (Feisty Von Riggan Hibbs). This recovery involved a non-typical deer that had been gut shot about 24 hrs. earlier. This was a pretty impressive track for young dogs (Jen is not quite 5 months old). I think much of the success is due to the training and experience of these handlers. For the complete story of the track go to www.alabamadeertracking.com Then go to latest tracks.

 

A Few Tracking Pictures

Fall is upon us and the tracking season is in full swing. It has been a busy season for us, and a while since I posted anything. I plan to get in the deerstand soon. I’m hoping for a mature buck.

I’ve recently gotten several pictures of some successful tracks. Two of the pups pictured are from the F-Litter (Jimmy Dean and Jen). They are young (4.5 months) and this is their first season. The picture of Jen also includes another young pup named Ray. He came from a different kennel than ours. Ellie Mae from Missouri is from the E-Litter. She is about 1.5 years of age. I really enjoy staying in contact with the owners and hearing how the dogs are doing.

Good luck to everyone this season!

Pups Are All In Their New Homes

The last three F-Litter pups have been picked up by their new owners. The reports have been good. It sounds like they’re settling in nicely. We decided to keep one of the seven pups (Sage). Sage is doing great. She is being mentored by my older dogs Echo and Jetta. As the days and evenings start to cool off, I am looking forward to Fall, and the upcoming hunting season.
