    The latest news on Otto is that he will be delivered to Kansas City International this Saturday, which is also the Opening Day of Deer Firearms Season.

    Otto at the Brushpile soon - that is a good thing. Poor Otto with 3 ladies - hope he hits the ground running.

    Is it a house warming for Otto coming to the Brushpile today? Hope so - 'cause as you said it has been an ordeal.

    Otto is going to be worth the ordeal - I am a believer!!!

    So how did Otto do his first few days with all the girls? I hope he held his own and wasn't shy.

    The girls are bigger and older, so his advances turn nasty! In a few Months Otto will be King!

    Rain tonight. Elkie and I need a rain day!

    Heidi has tracked every deer after Elkie has made a recovery, so Heidi is a proven tracker. This track was a 10 hour old gut shot buck that didn't leave one drop of blood and had been grid searched, contaminating the track. This was Elkie's second track of the day and she was losing focus, so I switched to Heidi, who took the track, and was on it when a 4 wheeler's headlights pierced the night, and pulled up to us with two large dogs in the bed; ending the track. So Heidi was restarted and tracked to a well built barbed wire fence. The buck was shot with a bow, high on the back, angling toward the right hind leg so he didn't want to jump the fence. We followed the fence beyond the grid searched area and Heidi picked up the trail.

    The hunter had been searching for hours, it was dark, and he had grown discouraged, when I asked how far we had gone, and suggested going another couple 100 yards, so on we went and suddenly there was a white belly and a red Luminock!!! The hunter dropped to both knees with his hands over his face!!! Moments like that are why I track!

    The buck was bigger than the hunter thought, and is a dandy; adding to the excitement!
