Ramsey can smell a tin of sardines opening a mile away
I trailed a deer today that was shot with a crossbow . We used my bloodhound . It was about a two mile tracking job in steep mountainous terrain . The hound found our quarry " a nice eight point shot by my daughter . " .
Duke here used to be a professional. Main job was bird dog'n but he could find wounded deer like nobody's business to. People would call to bring him to help find 'em.
Haven't needed that for a couple years. I'm not sure he could still do it or not, he is getting up there and can't see or hear too good any more.
Aurora had supposedly been trained as a search & rescue dog when I adopted her.
She is very well behaved and responsive to commands when on leash.
She also is a super watch dog (very different for a husky) and I rely on her to watch over my mom when I'm not home.
It appears my survival group now has a proven and tested second trailing dog . This morning we had a guest join our survival group . A beautiful young lady that came out the swamps of Louisiana to camp and hunt . She made a bad hit with her bow so a bulldog was brought in to trail the deer . The dog was allowed to trail unleashed . As earlier this week the trail went through rugged mountainous terrain . The Louisiana woman used to run track but was unused to such terrain . She became so exhausted she vomited from the rigorous chase . The bulldog after a one mile chase caught and flipped the deer to the ground and kept it there until the humans could catch up . --- That makes two deer this week trailed down using a dog one with my bloodhound and one with a bulldog . One of my survival members is hoping to buy another freezer tomorrow for the deer meat as our other freezers are full . --- We are preparing for a food chain collapse over the next months .
