Thread: Trust your dog...!

    Trust your dog...!

    These pictures are the result of a call I had on Sunday night from a stalker who's client had lost a fallow doe, he has a very good stalking dog that normally stands him in good stead, but after following the trail for about 400 yards through a crop of rape and through a wood and it was getting dark he give me a ring.
    I said it would be too much and not fair on the animal for me to turn up with just my 7 month old, but said I would bring along a friend who has a more experienced and proven dog.
    We ...met at 11am this morning and went back to the shot site, sure enough his dog had tracked it up through the rape and through the wood, it then came back out into the rape some 200 along, then back down and into another wood where we tracked it to a wounded bed it then moved off as we where getting fresh blood now on the track, then nothing as the ground started to rise up hill, back to the last marked blood two or three times, the dog was going back on its track and at this point we started to look els were with no luck.
    We checked the wood edge for sighs of blood or hair but nothing, so as we were going back to the last marked blood again we found the doe no more than 40-50 yards from the last mark and should have trusted the dog because he wanted to go back on the track, the stalked dispatched the doe and and found it hard to believe how far she had gone with that wound through both back legs.
    The doe had tried to go up the hill but count not because of her wounds so she came back along the track and then went off in another direction for 20 yards or so.
    Well done to the stalker for calling and ending suffering sooner than later, also got some more experience for my young one.
    the track was about 1k in length.

    The moral of this sorry it trust your dog...!!!

    did my first overnight 12 hour trail with my pup in the rain this morning, so may give her a chance on the next call out, but always will have a more experienced dog as back up.

    A warm and true Waidmannsheil to your dog and you for a successful tracking and ending suffering!
    Thats what tracking is all about, a non selfish support given to stalkers who got into this situation...

    Well done!

    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.

    The colour difference on the haunches and back legs is interesting, is this something usual?
