    Read Nels Sondergras's book or one of the other good deer for dogs book before you take the plunge. It will help you weigh up exactly what it is you want from the dog and what breed is going to be best for you.

    Good advise, if you ask on here you will get everybody trying to convince you that their particular breed, cross breed mongrel is the only dog for deer, when they are all wrong because this breed is best.



    Seriously read the book, work out what species of deer you usually stalk and in what terrain, will it be required to indicate (point) unseen deer or will it be just a tracking dog? Will the dog be used for other work? driven shooting, duck flighting, rough shooting, taking foxes under the lamp. Or just for deer.

    Once you know what you want from your dog you will have narrowed your choice to maybe 2 breeds.
