The hunter hit high and back angling down in to the liver/gut and maybe 1 lung. A great blood trail for 75-100 yards. Once the arrow feel out the blood STOPPED!! We went another 100 yards before finding a pin drop. Chris Davis actually walked the same exact route however with the snow on the ground and the amazing blood trail he figured the buck didn't go this way!! His searched continued heading west from the last blood (more probable route) still he couldn't find any blood. So at this point he decided to try a tracking dog. He is friends with Chris & Brandy LaFountain and Brandy suggested that he call Sypris & I. Sypris made quick work of the track. The buck went .26 of a mile and we found him in 18 minutes. We found where the buck bedded and probably bumped from Chris searching. Chris waited 1.5 hours before searching he thought his shot was on the money!!!! The buck must have lunged forward as soon as he released the arrow. Chris told me he wouldn't have found his best buck to date with out the help of Sypris. Now his buck is in the freezer and the trophy is taxidermist bound!!! Great buck Chris and thanks for using Michigan Deer Track'n Hounds.

I’m writing this letter in reference to my son John’s experience with Rob Miller and Sypris from MDTH. This began on November 8th, 2013 in Davison, MI while my son was bow hunting that morning at 1030 when he heard a noise to his left and was able to see one side of a set of antlers and knew it was a shooter. John grabbed his bow and was able to grunt and get the buck to stop and shot while quartering away. The buck ran thinking he missed when he saw the deer crash and fall appr. 40 yards away and get up and run again. After the shot and reviewing it he noticed a branch was still moving in his shooting lane. After an hour of waiting I (Dad) met up with John and found his arrow near the sight he shot him. A full pass through with bright red blood the entire arrow without bubbles or foul smell John felt it was farther back possible liver and we decided to give him time. Sitting near the edge of a cut corn field we realized he had ran across to another wood lot and needing to get permission we back out.
John called Rob Miller to get his advice in which he reaffirmed that he felt it was most likely liver/gut shot and that he was committed all day and was able to help us if needed late evening.
John and I decided to go back after obtaining permission from the land ownerat 1630 hrs to pick up the track and was able to track him to the edge of the wood lot. Had blood up to appr 15 yards from the wood lot and marked it and were unable to find any other sign in the wood lot.
Met with Rob and Sypris at appr 2130 hrs and started the track which was a first for us and was very impressed with Sypris and Rob and their dedication and professionalism. Sypris was able to pick up the track with minimal issues and once on fresh blood from where the buck bedded down Sypris was hot on the trail. Tracked the buck appr 1.4 miles were he was jumped by Sypris and Rob and Rob felt we should back out and come back in the am.
After a very sleepless night we returned Saturday morning to were the buck was last jumped and while waiting for Sypris and Rob, John wanted to glass the woods and appr 50 yds from where the buck was jumped the night before there he lies. Rob and Sypris arrived and finished the excellent tracking job that Sypris started 13 hrs prior and what an exciting moment for all involved and undoubtedly we would have never found this trophy without Sypris and Rob.

Within minutes of reaching the stand I had the nice 10 pointer we had been watching via trail camera working a scrape line in my direction. He was heading to me like he was on a rope! After several crazy minutes I got an arrow into the heavy bodied deer. He was quartering away at a little heavier angle than I would like but I was confident I had made a good shot. I waited several hours and moved in for the recovery. After 70 yards it sounded like we had jumped the buck and I immediately got that feeling in my gut. We called Rob from that point in the field and asked what him and Sypris were up to!
Rob and Sypris showed up the following afternoon and we walked into the shot location. Within minutes Rob was confident Sypris had the buck's scent and turned that little dog loose. What happened next was about 27 minutes of unbelievable tracking performed by Sypris. When I say performed that is exactly what I mean. She puts on an absolute performance.
When we got to the river and Rob announced the deer had crossed I waited for him to pick her up and carry her across. Nope! Rob told Sypris to get after it and away she went. Splash! Across the river and up a steep embankment and away she went. It didn't take long after that and I was standing on a rise looking down at the river's edge and my buck! Sypris had covered over a half mile in less then 30 minutes, leaving me sucking air and a water bottle near the end. These two make an incredible team and helped turn what could have been a heartbreaking season into another trip to Pope and Young.
I can't thank you enough!
Here is hoping for hot tracks! (Not that Sypris needs them!)
