    A tracking Story from a 6 months old HS

    After the honest account from Bartzkingx about the problems with his 6 months old BMS I found in the Hirschmannbrief that arrived this morning the story of a 6 month old HS.

    The handler first tells a bit about his training and the constant contact he had with the breeder and his mentor as soon as he was uncertain about anything to do with the training.

    He then reports on a midnight phonecall from the local pubowner! that one of his clients hit a big stag with his car.

    The handler did the sensible thing and asked a collegue to accompany him. The "hitplace" was soon found and the force of the collision had thrown the stag some 20 yards down the hill. Once that was established the hound was fetched. She already got interested on the tarmac and when bought to to the "landing place" dressed in her tracking harness she started working out the track.

    After some 50 yards the handler realised there were 2 deer and the hound followed first the unwounded track but returned of her own free will after some 20 meters to the other track.

    With her nose firmly glued to the ground she followed a difficult track from a zigzagging stag without any blood.

    The first woundbed was found after 350 meters, no blood and after 400 meters the deer backtracked.

    This too created no problems for the hound and in another 20 meters she found the dead stag.

    Total distance 420 meters. Time lapse between incident and the start of tracking 8.5 hours.

    A textbook search. (Probably that is why it appeared in the Hirschmannbrief).

    now thats what its all about !

    cracking story its a great shame that the calls to find wounded and injured deer are a bit few and far between in the uk !

    i have great admiration for our european tracking partners and their hounds .
