Nice.
Any evidence of a fawn?


Ive been seeing fawns in them for a while now.

This one I didn't open up, but she was a real piss stained smelly old thing so maybe she was dry.


Ahhh.....so a real local, then?  Wink

Go the mighty fluff dog Smiley
I bet she was confused with the hopper. That doesn't smell like a deer.
Well done Tilly. Oh you too BC Smiley

The wallabies gave her a new lease of life. She was fascinated by them and worked them pretty well albeit she chased the first couple she flushed.

She's creeping towards 100. 91 now.





I used her to find a a hind in the scrub a mate had shot on dark the other night. He waited for me to turn up so we could take Tilly down to the area it was last seen. It was dark and no breeze for a scent but after a bit of floundering around she found it - I think visually. Anyway, she became alert and then ran across a little clearing and stood by the deer on the edge of it. It was a good find.

Heck both you humans KNEW you would find it with her help and that right there is 99% of the battle won. thats a hard case set of handle bars on the spiker...or should that be spiker n a bit???
floundering around in the dark trying to find a shot animal isnt fun...having such a wonderful lass to help is priceless.

This was a great find by Tilly the other day. Grandboy shot this at 275 yards and it disappeared over the little clear saddle it was in and back down onto a steep face in the scrub and shit. It was dark by the time we got over there.

After a bit of floundering around with no luck I was cutting across the face under where it had been shot and had disappeared (there was no wind at all for Tilly) and Tilly cut its ground scent. She turned straight down hill and I followed, and after about 100 yards or so of no blood (but the odd scuff mark) she stopped at the edge of a bank and shot glances at me "here it is, Ive found it" she seemed to be saying. It was about 200 yards from where it had been hit.

It was a hell of a good find in the dark without any blood and no wind to scent off. The deer was a big hind and James had heart shot it which would probably be why it did such a long death rush.
