As a southern softie I rarely get to stalk in the snow and never with my current teckel.
I was lucky enough to shoot a couple of fallow this evening, one of which ran a fair distance.
Thinking this would be a useful training test for my dog I left it a while before getting the dog out by which time it was well dark.
Usually she is fairly calm when approaching a point of shot and keen but steady once the blood has been found. This time she was really pulling and starting to give tongue when we followed the footprints up to the point of shot. Once we found blood and I told her to "go find" she was off like a train. A bit novel as I could see her check each blood spot in the snow, something which you cant normally do.
I was a bit surprised i think I was expecting that scent would be difficult in the snow but seemed otherwise. Dont suppose I will get the chance to play in the snow again for another 10 years as we dont get much.
Is this normal, have others had a similar or indeed a different experience.
