I posted awhile back about working with my new pup on trailing wounded deer. Well, we have worked really, really hard. I joined the United Blood Trackers organization back when I got him, I was looking to learn as much as I could. Fast forward to Saturday. We made a 2 hour drive to meet with a judge of the organization for a UBT-1 assessment. We passed! A+ on a 400 yd blind track, 2 hours old and laid with hooves and 3 oz of blood. A couple turns, a wound bed, a creek crossing, a field with knee high grass, and woods – some thick, some open. I was so proud of my boy. He nailed it and now we are UBT-1 certified by the organization. Never would I have thought my shelter mutt project would have come this far. This by no means makes us experts but its a huge boost of confidence. Im going to have to start challenging my boy even more with line age and distance until we can get to deer season for some real world work. My boy done good!!

Thanks everyone. I dont know what areas yall hunt in but I know for sure Ill be working the Gwinnett, Hall, Forsyth, North Fulton, and some Dekalb county areas. I will travel further depending on the situation and availability, particularly up the I85 corridor up to Franklin county and out towards Athens GA. I need to put him on as many tracks as possible this coming season. He is young and we need real life practice. Buck, doe, blood, no blood, doesnt matter. If you think its a lethal hit, get in touch with me. As of now, Im not looking to charge anything to come out and track. Tips and donations will always be apprecited, gas and vehicle wear and tear will surely add up.
Dont hesitate to contact me if you cant find a deer, even if there is little to no blood. Im training him to track the interdigital gland in between the hooves of a deer. It goes into overdrive when the deer is wounded and is like a fingerprint to that deer.
We will track on lead, he is not trained to catch and bay, that may change one day but not this season.
Ill put another post up as we get closer to season with all my contact info.
