Out walking my BMH this morning when she suddenly veered off to my left and stopped about 50 yards away looking at the ground then looking at me repeatedly.
I thought she was at it as she has recently been causing me a problem catching pheasants and bringing them back to me so I kept on walking.
A few seconds later she trots up to my side, sits down and sticks her head forward, with a strip of deer hair in her mouth.
I followed her back down, and there where she had been pointing was a dead roe deer.
The good news is she is obviously always switched on whether tracking or not and I think I may now try training her to use a bringle.
The bad news is some dirty ba5tard is obviously poaching my area as the deer had its haunches cut off and nothing else!
