Morning all ,I am sure this has been done on here before but it never hurts to get new views ! I have an ageing lab that has been very good for finding any deer wounded or dead for the last 10 years for me , I have always used him as a back up dog in the truck . However I have reduced the roe population on the estate i work on considerably in the last 9 years to a level we are happy with , but the knock on effect is the stalking has become a lot harder as there is a lot less deer on it ! So I feel I need a dog now that will be able to accompany me on stalks to give me an edge ! As well as follow up any wounded deer etc ,
it is mainly roe but we are starting to see a few sika but not to many yet !
The new dog will join 2 springers and my old boy lab ,
i have a couple of breeds In mind but will wait and see what you guys reckon !
