I'll post what I can Betty.

I don't really know how many tracks to get to make since the surrounding counties to where I live and hunt are all "No Tracking Counties". This will have me limited to family, friends, and some word of mouth.

I sure wish I knew how to lobby to get these East Texas Counties to legalize tracking dogs (on lead)

Brent,

We'll take any stories and pics you can manage!!

As far as knowing how to lobby for changes in the tracking laws, I sure cant help, but perhaps you could visit with the Texas Dog Hunters http://thenewtdha.com/smf1.5/index.php and see what they might suggest. They do a lot of work for saving our rights with dogs, etc. so they could sure tell you where to start!!

I cant imagine why people dislike tracking with dogs. It helps find the lost deer and we all know that dogs can do that better than people can. But, the government has never been know for having good sense when it comes to logical things!!

Betty

It is not that anyone has anything against blood trailing with a dog. These counties were / are the last of the "Deer Dog" strong holds and they (TPWD) don't want any gray area with people in the woods armed with a dog.

That is why I mentioned "Trailing on Lead"


Even the Wardens don't agree with it but it is their job to enforce it and I get that. We had a warden helping trail a deer my youngest shot last year, when we had exhausted the search, without thinking I asked if he had any contacts for dogs and he replied "No, and I can't be here if you are going to call one".

Try United blood trackers they will set you up and help get it organized. They are non profit so they can't lobby for you, but will support you with information, demonstrations, or any thing you need.
