Pulling a blind on Saturday cut a track in snow that had only been there since Thursday evening and found blood. Made me think for a minute. Hunting season over for a week, no coyote tracks. Not much blood.

Back trailed it, since that was the way I was heading anyway. Blood every 3 feet. Only went 10 yards and found the source. Without the snow, blood would have been washed away. We had 3" snow on Thursday and then an all day rain on Friday.

Very cool!

My boy watched this one shed a couple of weeks ago. Likely due to injury. Was able to keep track of him, it bleed for a few days.

That is cool, thanks for sharing. I can remember finding snow like that in the woods late season one time and figured a lower leg/hoof injury. I should have backtracked instead of followed the track to see. I just never thought about a shed antler as the source at that time.

A shed hunting friend here in Montana came upon two bull elk tracks with blood in them and a wolf track trailing them as well from the blood probably. It was up high in the spring and he suspected the blood was from the bull shedding. He backtracked the bulls and found one six-point shed antler from on of the bulls.
