    Thermal or Dog

    Going on recent threads if were all going to buy thermals there will be no need for the dog no best friend to wind you the deer and generally point you in the right direction and get out the **** at last light when a deer has run to cover is this the way things are to go no dog and technology taking over field craft just my thoughts and the name for my new DOG is going to be FLIR

    I disagree SDM, over Christmas i shot a red hind that ran aprox 30yds in a plantation after being heart shot, she fell into a drainage ditch (full of water) i doubt a thermal would have guided you onto to it as it was below ground level.
    In time i may invest in a thermal, but it will not take the place of my dog.
    I wish I was half the hunter my dog thinks I am

    I do hope to get a thermal but I dont think I could ever get rid of the dogs, for one I cant run as fast as them after a wounded beast.

    Everything has its place, thermal for scanning clearfell, dog for stalking rides and scenting/finding deer.

    Thermal most certainly won't find all of your dead deer. It's good but it's not that good.

    Why wouldn't you want to stalk with a dog anyway? Thermal or not?

    Perhaps if you know which bit of cover the deer finished up in; otherwise dog...
