Take a break.

Frank Williams article on Blood Trailing was very good, but after 60 plus years I have learned one more tactic that I expected Frank to include. When the time comes when the blood trail seems useless, the sun is beating down and you have had enough; this is the time to mark the last sign of blood, go back to your hunting shack or truck, have a sandwich and coffee, maybe take a short nap, get rid of the heavy clothing and go back out to the last place you marked and start all over. Twice in the past few years I have pulled that stunt on a tracking session and found the buck within 100 yards of where we had given up.
