Thats funny, I was in Ocala Friday picking ours out. No papers or anything but were getting him for $150. Parents are duck retrievers and blood trailers so Im hoping this pup has some sense.

Woody got his first taste of blood trailing today. We both have some learning in this trailing issues. I should have put him on a leash so I could have slowed him down a little. I placed him on the trail and he took off like he had done this several times. The good thing is that he has really short legs and was easy to keep up with. It all happen so fast that I didn't get any pictures but I can claim 1 for 1 on recovery. Now I can use some training aids and do some real work on making a fine blood trailer. First question on this training thing is what s the best way to keep any of the blood? I'm thinking freeze small amounts and use as needed. what about using deer feet? Will this work as far as the blood trailing thing?

I'm certainly not any kind of a dog trainer, but I would venture that Woody wont forget what he did today. Just be sure to let him be around when you're dressing the deer, feed him a little junk and he'll be ready the next time you put him on a blood trail.

After cleaning mine Thursday night, I kept some lung, heart and liver. I cut each piece into 1/3 so that i can use it on the end of a drag to start training. My breeder uses small pvc capped at both ends, he drills a small hole in the tube, fills with blood using a syringe, then places a piece of tape over the hole before freezing it. When hes ready to train, he just pulls it out, removes the tape and starts leaving trails for the dogs to follow.

I took the ears off the last deer killed and placed them in the freezer for training little by little. Today is the first day that I laid a scent trail down in the yard for Woody to trail. The first trail was only about 50 yards long. He sailed off on it and found it with no trouble. I had my daughter (Wife 2) take them inside while I laid another trail down. This time I made a loop around the yard that was probably 150 yards long. She brought him out and placed him on the ground and I whistled his on it and he took off. After he trailed it to the end he was treated to a very good treat with lots of praise and play. After the fact I was ready to go inside and end the training. He would have nothing to do with it and wanted to keep trailing. I went inside and watched him out the window and he ran the same path for about 20 minutes. he must have made 10 trips around the house with his nose to the ground. One question is what do I do when I'm ready to go inside and he isn't. Do I just let him continue trailing with out me or what? If I lay the trail at the house he will just go back outside and start trailing it. Woody did a fine job in trailing up the scent laid.

Well Woody and I had a failed recovery attempt last weekend. I shot a good buck and it hit him a little to far back. Not to make any excuses but he was chasing a doe. Once a saw that he was hit a little far back I pulled out and went home to get Woody. After giving the buck 2 1/2 hours I brought woody in to the last spot that I saw blood and ponch. He took it about 100 yards and trailed him straight into a pond. With his short legs and deep grass I knew that he wouldn't be able to make it. I pulled him off and looked a good bit around the pond for more sign with no success. I went back Sunday and looked for another 3 hours. After 3 hours and 7 moccasins I gave up the hunt. I hate loosing any thing that I shoot expecially this one because he was a 7-8 point.Image
