    I am red-green colorblind and it is hard for me to try to make out blood trails. What can I use to make it easier to see the trail?

    I wish I had a serious and informative answer (I'm sure someone that knows about this will give you one). Since I'm no help with your question and I happen to be in one of those moods I sometimes get in when I'm trapped indoors, I'll throw out the first thing that comes to mind: hunt with RPGs--no blood trail to worry about.

    Sorry, I couldn't help it--I'll go stand in the corner now--again.

      Hydrogen Peroxide in a spray bottle, mist the trail liberally and if there is blood present it will quickly cause bubbles to form.

        I don't know who I would be more suspicious of??... the guy in the woods with an RPG or the guy treating the trail with a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide. You must be one of those Canadian fellas BigJake :-)

          Seadog, you're a HOOT!! How bout a grenade launcher? Just land a frsg grenade next to the deer, and no tracking problems!! Better yet, use a white phosphorus round, and your venison will be precooked (Move over, MY turn in the corner!!)

            I will second bigjake. But I will add that you need to keep it in an opaque bottle. The peroxide will begin to break down if it is exposed to light, that is why you only find it in those brown bottles. If it starts breaking down, no foaming, no finding the blood trail.

              LMAO I feel sorry for the unfortunate few that are deprived of a sense of humor. Like I said, someone would come up with a serious & informative answer and bigjake came through. Plus 1 for bigjake from me (and to Bo for adding information). And to all of us with a sense of humor, a minus 1 from mister misery, incognito.

                P.S. Montanagyrene, you can hunt with me anytime--we'll leave the grenades at home and joke about it around the campfire when the day is done.

                    What's with the minus points on Kody's post. Gee whiz, guys, doesn't anyone have a sense of humor, I thought it was funny and gave him a +1. Four people, at least, need some help, don't take life so seriously.

                        Describe your hunting handguns (With Pics!) whether they be revolvers, semi-autos or single-shot specialty pistols.
