One of my German friends send me Uwe Tabel's "Auf der Scweissfaehrte" (On the tracking trail) a book written not for HS and BHS owners but for the German hunter with a (deer)dog as opposed to a scenthound.
Well written, logical, well presented and full of top class advice, excellent pictures.
I wish somebody would persuade the BDS to translate it.
But going through it I cannot resist quote the special note on page 113.
"Leg shots on roe.
There are still people who believe that after a few hours a roe gets used to its broken leg and is thus more difficult to find. That is simply nonsense.
On the contrary. The risk of an unsuccesful search immediately after a shot is extremely high".
Would this evidence persuade some people in this country?
