Training dog to find wounded deer
Her name was Susie. She was owned by the parents of my future son-in-law, Keith. During deer season one day long ago, I shot a doe, followed and lost the blood trail and was about to give up when I remembered Susie.
I called Keith, he brought Susie over and within half an hour, she was barking at my downed deer.
This happens all across our part of the country this time of year; a hunter makes an errant shot, a deer is wounded and would become food for coyotes and buzzards except for a good blood trailing dog.
