I have been working with my Lab pup on blood trailing and finally got to put her to the test last night. I shot a Whitetail doe just at dark and was unable to find blood by the time I got the the spot where I shot her. I went home and picked up my pup and back to where I last saw the deer, and when I let my pup go, she literally went straight to the deer (which was only about 25 yards away down in a draw).
I know it is a very elementary test, but she had to start somewhere. I am proud of her just the same.
