Roy shot a doe this morning, but hit it a little behind where he intended, so it gave the dogs a good track.

We got up there with the dogs and I let them out of the truck before I should have. Abe took off like a house afire!! They all jumped into the feeder, Abe found the blood and took off. We lost him for a minute or two, then I saw him on the deer pulling like crazy! Roy said that it was about 200 yards. He knew exactly where he was going and what he was doing!! He has had very little training. I have run a track with him maybe twice. We have always thought that he had a good nose on him. He's not so good at getting into the fight with coons or the like, but he dang sure did a good job on the deer this morning!!

Great job, Abe! It looks like he really enjoyed that!

Hard to tell in the photo, but it appears he might have that look on his face of "I found it. It's mine... stay the hell away." When Cannon has that look, it's always accompanied by a deep growl. :-/

Yes, he definitely established ownership over the other two dogs. Not bad, but he knew it to be his deer. He didnt growl at me or Roy, but the dogs didnt mess with him. He drug that dang deer all over everywhere! She wasnt real big, but she was a good size and he just grabbed ahold and drug her. Its amazing the strength these little dogs have! I have a video of him dragging it, but our connection out here just wont load videos.

Court,

Do you use just Luna or both of your dogs for tracking?

I got a call from a guy that got my name off of TBH early in the season. He told me that he had heard about you. He said that he had some friends that had seen you tracking and that your team was awesome!

Betty, neither dog does very well when I put them on a trail together. Maybe they are a distraction to each other...they can't maintain focus. When I put one on a trail, that dog knows exactly what to do without question.

The only time I'll put both out is if Luna seems to be having trouble. I figure at least if they are both on the ground moving quickly through the woods they are twice as likely to stumble on scent or find a wounded deer in its bed.

Thats what happens with my dogs. They definitely distract each other. On one track, tho, Ben, who has not done much tracking, picked up and did real good when Lucy just flat quit. So, you never know, I guess.

I'd love to bring Ruby out to track downed deer. I know her nose goes up in the yard if I even open a package of venison after defrosting in the kitchen and I have the windows open. She comes running from the slightest scent. It is simply amazing. I just don't trust some of the hunters up here. We had 4 people shot during shotgun season this year in Massachusetts. one guy was hit in the neck with buckshot and drove himself to the hospital!

You definitely have to be careful. I wouldnt use my dogs under certain conditions, such as on public lands. All of the tracks that we have done have been on ranches that are leased to the particular hunters that made the call. I keep Lucy on lead because she doesnt bark when she finds the deer, so she is not ever far from me. Perhaps someday we will invest in a tracking collar. Gads, but then I would have to learn how to use it!!!
