What doís the UK stalker expect from his dog for deer?
As UK stalking has developed its own model and is different from the German,
Swedish styles of hunting what do people expect from there dog.
Doís the Uk stalker want a Stalking companion, deer radar and a dog that will track fresh shot deer? Iíve had over 30years of stalking in the UK and if I lived there now I would want the afore mentioned qualities in my dog plus the ability to track a cold scent up to say, 24 hours old
I canít think of any body here in Sweden that would take a dog stalking with them Mainly as our ďstalkingĒ is mostly confined to the short rifle only roebuck season.
We have a lot of RTAís to track and there would be a control track for every beast shot at. You donít hear Oh, I think I missed here.
The Germans have there style of tracking as have the Swedish. While I am all for training my dogs to their fullest potential be they a spaniel or a tracking dog doís the UK tracking dog need to be trained to track a 40 hour track.
