First, the mesh bag I used to hold the little piece of meat was not in good shape and I used it anyway. (Side note, I have gone from roast size to small-serving sizes of meat to lessen the size and weight of the drag to leave less drag scent as I walk.) About 180 yards out, I realized the meat had come out of the bag and was lying somewhere behind me on the track. Oh well. Stop the track here, I thought, leave the bag, let's see what she does.
2nd goof was that I wanted to use a very light long line but couldn't find one right away when I was ready to run the track. I have three of them and none was in the first places I looked - but my regular, heavier blood tracking line was right there in front of me. I debated, heavy line, larger and heavier snap, the track is over an hour old and in some ways more difficult than what she has done before. Well, this line is here, I will snap it on and use it - and (again) "see how she does."
3rd mistake was when we began the track in tall field grass before going into the woods, I found that I was recording myself instead of Shaki. I realized this when we got into shade near the woods and I looked down to be sure I was recording. I saw that I was watching myself. lol I changed the mode from selfie to Shaki mode began recording again at this point, near the woods. And Shaki is showing you exactly what I did here. I walked right up to the edge of the woods, then decided to go right instead, and enter the woods in a different spot. I stopped recording momentarily when Shaki found the meat I'd 'lost' and bent to take it from her.
This track is an hour and 10 minutes old and the woods floor is very dry.
