    You seem to be bringing him on just about right Seb , if he was not messing about with that fag he would have had it before it took off again, you need to thrash him more

    Hello, Seb, (Smithp18 and Weather Witch),

    That's fantastic I have her brother Zerno Crackshot (Milo). He is absolutely brilliant, let me know how his sister gets on!

    Keep up the good work.

    Hi Steyr.
    I have been laying tracks for Casca (Zerno Celescine) with either liver or blood spots bring the distance up slowly. Last track was 200 yards ish, with dabs of liver and left for 6 hours. I put small piece at the start and end. It run along a field through a gate into a wood. She did really well slight distractions with other sent, but soon got back on the sent. Just finished walking out see was puing and we bumped a young doe, I know we should have left it but I was interested to see if she could track it. She followed it right through the wood to where it was 10 yards away in cover bumped again but we left it at that. Been following others on the site regards progress and I would say we are a little slower, but she needs manners to and I don't want to rush things. Tracks are once sometimes twice a week.
