Ep11 - Muckdogs Deer Recovery Service

On this episode we sit down with a true conservationist hero. Dean Muthig of MuckDog’s Deer Recovery Service discusses the business of tracking and finding deer for hunters in need. We dive into what deer season is like in Wisconsin for a deer tracker and his dogs. Further topics include dog breeds, good and bad shot placement, hunters' egos, poor decision making, legalities of tracking and much more. Sit back and enjoy this truly educational and fun conversation with one of the premier trackers in the Midwest.
