    Deer tracking!

    How do?
    I have a nine month old GWP with 16th Lab in him. I am interested in getting him into tracking/stalking deer I have done bits and pieces but nothing major and was wondering if someone could give me a bit of info on the basics? I am more looking for a course to go on with him. It sounds cheeky but I would love to see someone working with there dogs! Here is a couple of pictures with the little bugger

    Hi ck.
    Thats a lovely looking pup ya got buddy. Just been reading my basc mag that dropped through the door yesterday and in it it says about a seminar there doing next month but is a stretch of ya legs as its in Bedfordshire.
    The guy that they say is leading it is a legendary in the use of dogs for deer and has written an excellent book on the subject which would also be a good read for you.
    Kind regards

    CapstanKid,
    I'm interested in learning some basic techniques too,prior to getting a pup, a course or day would be very welcome.
    Maybe something can be arranged via the sd,collective group of guys starting out training their dogs for deer,techniques,laying a trail,equipment etc etc.
    I've had nothing but genuine helpfull advice and numerous pms which is a credit to the guys on here and their knowledge on tracking.

    Daven,

    Thanks for the reply's guys.
    I noticed that too in my BASC magazine It looks good but it's a bit pricey especially for me having to travel all that way. I heard a while ago Cumbria woodlands had done a course on it with the legend Niels Sondergaard, I have sent them an email to see if they will put another course on I am sure it was cheaper than 195 as well.

    went to see the same guy at grizedale last year , well woth a day out if he comes up north , you can buy his book also , and i think the BDS do a small paperback book for about 6 which is worth a read , all the best and enjoy your dog , arron.
