of using a tracking unit
recovering your turkey
The Turkey Pro
Sez: "I have trusted
THE TRACKER™, a Professional
Game Tracking System, to help me retrieve turkeys,
deer, and elk for
many years. You will find that a turkey is a tough animal to drop in its
tracks unless a vital hit is made, and deer, elk, and hogs are equally tough
to recover when hit in non-vital areas.
Since vital areas are small, you don't always
put an arrow where you want it to be. For example, when using any style of broadhead,
if a turkey is not dropped in its tracks, it will run or fly away, and usually
leave no sign to follow. Recovery is nearly impossible. Deer,
elk, and hogs will often travel a good distance even with a vital hit, and
with a non-vital hit, the distances traveled before they hole up can be
quite long, with often little or no blood sign to follow. With
THE TRACKER™, you simply
follow the line to your quarry.
works nearly all the time. However, sometimes a line will break, particularly if your
arrow didn't do much damage and your game wasn't hit hard. When a wounded
animal is strong enough to struggle against the line, a line can
break. The good news is you do have a good deal of line to follow
to know exactly the path the animal took as it escaped, and you can
evaluate any blood or other sign along the path to help determine where your hit may have
been, thus giving you important clues needed to continue the search for
To get a quick second shot if you miss the first, you should mount a second
tracker to your bow, or tape another
tracker to the first one,
tying its line to a second arrow in your quiver. I have often used this method to
bag a gobbler or deer that I missed with the first arrow. I always
want to have a line to follow with every shot.
to select the right line strength...
I'm often asked about which strength of line to use - 17# or 30#. It
depends on circumstances and personal preference.
I always use the 30# line because its breaking point is much higher than
the 17# line, and my bow shots are within 20-25 yards, thus the heavier
line has no impact on the arrow's trajectory.
When shooting at longer ranges, be sure to practice and see if the heavier
line affects trajectory....if it does, adjust your sights accordingly or
use the 17# line. Even a small animal, like a turkey, will
eventually stretch and break the line if it isn't hit very
advice is to
purchase both strengths of line, practice with each, and decide which is
best for you and your application."
