I would appreciate your recommendations for the best book for training a deer dog.
I've got an 8 week old WHV. My stalking buddy has 3 so I know about the breed and made an informed choice about what to go for.
I stalk about an average of once a week throughout the year.
I know that WHV's prefer to airscent and to be honest I can think of very few deer where I have needed to blood trail but its a skill I would like the dog to be trained to have, just in case.
I do not want to train him for gameshooting or picking up, as I just don't get time to do that anymore. He will purely be a deer dog.
What books would you read for a background to WHV training and blood trailing? I'm aware most of the good ones are European.
