It's that time of year in Maine where the Men grow beards and the deer run scared. I, being from NY, don't fit in with the local bunch (yet) and often find that if I want to go hunting, it is by myself.

I do enjoy being in the woods alone but I HATE not having a hunting bud to help me track a wounded deer. But what if I had a Slug Brother? An add on to my gun, triggerd by my...well duh....trigger that fired an additional round containing a (reuseable) tracking device. Flip on the locator and begin the search.

Possibly better than an add on would be a doubble barrel shotgun. One round for the kill and one to deliver the tracking bug.

       Sometimes I get excited about the idea, do the research and then forget the obvious. I will delete this as soon as I read a little bit more on the subject.

       It seems the link you gave me was for a pistol that could track motion in order to calculate timing for fireing upon a target. I am suggesting that the target is "bugged" so the hunter can track a target after it has been hit.

       The seccond link would prove this idea baked. I guess all I thought of was a combination of a gun and tracking bug being fired at the same time, I will give myself a bone for adding tech one to tech two and pretending to be an inventor of any sort. Thanks for the links!

       Probably why it exists.

       If you were a better shot, you wouldn't need to track wounded deer, right?
DrCurry, Nov 03 2006
  

       A deer can still run quite a bit even after being struck on what one might call a "good shot". But in theroy, yes the perfect shot might drop the deer in an instant.

       I'm not quite getting how this replaces a hunting bud. How does said bud locate the wounded deer with such precision?

       Really what you need is some sort of harpoon.

       Or a pack of elkhounds.

       Use Depleted Uranium shot - You could track that.

       //I'm not quite getting how this replaces a hunting bud. How does said bud locate the wounded deer with such precision?// A hunting buddy adds an extra set of eyes to cover a large section of land. It is not that a friend would be so precise but that fact that it cuts down on time spent looking for a wounded or killed deer.   

       //Use Depleted Uranium shot - You could track that.// I would rather not eat contaminated meat.

       Unless you drop the deer instantly, the meat is going to be contaminated with adrenalin. Yeah, different, I know.
Texticle, Nov 06 2006
  

       Ok I don't want to eat meat contaminated with D.U.   

       Better?
Chefboyrbored, Nov 06 2006
  

       But Pb's OK?
