At the North Devon Show just over a week ago a bds member on the their stand told me that a dog should not be transported with a deer carcass where cross contamination can occur.
I have a hi-lux double cab and two spaniels who are no good as deer dogs at all well only at eating the bits i dont want so these animals do not accompany me on stalks.
I understand what the chap was saying and agree , I am however looking for a dog to train solely for deer work , but i am reluctant to let any dog ride with me in the truck once i have a carcass in the back. Now i quite often take my quad and trailer so the carcass could stay in that, but that is not ideal in that the quad is hot when loaded in the trailer and it is then covered.
I can get around the problem but i am curious what others do !!
