    drop a PM to Stone (Richard), he trained his Black Lab Sika & she's a cracking Deer dog now.

    Hi John
    Are you going to use your lab only for stalking or picking up and shooting as well

    Try and keep him on game for a full season after he is trained then switch him to deer if you want to talk PM me with your phone number and I will run you through the way I do it it may not be correct but it works.

    What's your priority, Deer or game? I would do deer work first. This should ensure a steady dog. If the dog is of good breeding it will easily switch to game.

    My 2 pence worth!

    Train for tracking deer first. Work on pheasant later.

    I'm will be in much the same position as John once we acquire our new lab in 2 weeks. It's a way off but I want to get it right from the start. Is the consensus shared by the last 2 posts...deer first and then on to picking up game?
