I have begun to let my two dogs run trails together so the younger dog can learn from the older, experienced dog. It has its advantages and disadvantages. They work well as a team and they seem to feed off each other but the main disadvantage is they fight for possession when they find the kill.

I work my dogs off leash unless the property is very small or bordered by a highway.

I guess my questions are When is it appropriate to use two dogs for blood trailing and Does anybody use two dogs for finding wounded game?

Mike almost always takes two dogs but only works one. If the first dog out is having trouble finding the deer then he pulls him/her and runs the other.

Ellie is our strongest tracker and always finds the animal... so he some times saves her in the truck and lets one of the younger dogs trail first for the experience.
The only one he has tracked while on a lead though was my red bone, the lacy dogs trail off lead.

I posted a long response but lost it somehow. Sorry, I had to sell one of my dogs because of an agression problem. Didnt want to mess up my smaller dog because Digger would always get agressive at a dead deer.
