Thread: More work for Brit.

  1. #1

    More work for Brit.

    Hope you don't get to p@@@@@ off with me for posting yet another track with my young dog,
    I got this call on Friday night about 9.15 from a stalker who had lost and could not find a yearling roe buck, given it was nearly dark I said it would be better to look in the morning,I arrived at the ground about 6am in the pouring rain and we soon located the shot site, from there it was plain sailing on the track which took me from the open field and into a wood some 120 yards from the SS, the buck had been hit through the shoulder and through the neck so was never going very far.
    the pic is of his yellow lab and myself and Brit.

    They're coming in thick and fast now. Good result.

    I'm curious, a few times it's been assisting folk where their own/another dog had failed. Why do you think that is? Lack of training, wrong type of training, dog not "specialised" towards deer, not experienced? A genuine question, not meant to reflect badly on anybody else or their dog.

    Not at all p@@@ed off reading these reports, its always good to read about "lost" deer being successfully found.

    Well done and keep them coming.

    Congratulations to you both on another successful track.

    My only regret about your write up is that it's not longer!

    I think a lot of us want to learn more about what's involved in tracking and increasingly see what you do a great ("sporting"?) activity in its own right, as well as being a huge step forward in reducing suffering to deer (and angst to stalkers).

    You've no idea how valuable these posts are for a novice like myself on his first mission training his dog.
    I do have 1 question,
    Do you let the dog search and find the shot site,then give the command get on,find, fetch etc etc, or do you sit him up and you search then bring him to the site?

    Cheers

    Mines more fun involvement with my dog as im a none expert or stalk enough to have a fully trained dog so any mistakes I hold myself responsible.

    I take mine over to.the shot site let the dog gather its own interest in smells etc when I see the dog is in hunt mode all's I say is "find.deer" she seem to wonder a 12 foot radius around the shot site to she gets finds a trail. If she seems to struggle walking sniffing without success I return back to the site or last decent recording.
    It may sound commical if folk seemmy wee thing but she is a little cracker. I'm fortunate where I live as surrounded by deer. Regularly I have an adventure in a field with a cape etc..

    I hope that you didn't follow that trail dressed like that Tony, what no dayglo Kevlar body armour like the other mob!
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
