    Training a lab pup for deer

    Hello all
    This is my first post so please bare with me. I have recently secured some permanent stalking and I want to train my new lab pup to track deer. The problem is the stalking ground is quite a bit from home and my local ground has no deer on it, so no deer sent. When I'm laying my blood trails there won't be any other deer sent around. Will this be a problem when I evevntulally take him stalking and expose him to all that live sent

    Get your obedience work started,heel,sit,stay and do blood trails sparingly,ie once a week or even once a month,don't sicken your pup with too much trails, it should all be fun,start him on trails at4 to 6 months old.Other deer scent is actually a no no when laying blood trails so your dog can get the blood up his nose and nought else.With experience you and your dog will know when he is on blood or a scent trail.the blood trail will pep him up a bit,handy when there is deer there cos you will have welded him to blood so he should ignore the other foot scent.Again experience will play a part,ie if you have shot a leg etc,your dog will know so trust him,their comprehension of scent is far greater than ours

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Oh dear
    Apologises everybody, I'm foxyshane and I live in Northern Ireland. I've been stalking for eight years mostly in Scotland to start but later in devon when my job took me to London. I'm currently shooting with two sauers, a .308 and a 6.5x55.
