That was neat to watch. I am in search of a ragdterrier now and I understand they are great wounded animal trackers also. Thanks for the post.

I can’t see most pictures and videos people post in the last 6 months. I really don’t know what going on. I guess try quoting my Original post and see if it pops up that way

It’s hit or miss on my iPad with videos and pics for some reason. Some I can see some I can’t. I can see all from my desktop at work. (?)

I generally can’t see them either unless I hit quote, then type one letter in the dialogue box and then hit review. That then gives me a link that I can see.

Thats why you get a GPS collar and sit back and watch!

Awesome to see a good dog work! Two things.....screw tracking on a lead and don't want my dog making a sound unless she's on a live one. Great recovery!

Thanks Geezy for putting up that link, that was great ! That deer wouldn’t have been found unless you were extremely lucky. I thought my JRT had taken me through some nasty stuff after hogs but that was NASTY ! Love to see dog work of any kind.

I always worked Sarge on a long lead, I didn’t want him to run into any coyotes in case they were on a hog that we left all night. Besides that I wanted to watch him work.

I work my JRT on a lead. I want to work him off lead and bought a GPS collar. I’m just not sure he wouldn’t abandon the deer for any other small game critter he encountered along the way. May try it at my place this season.

I run my jack off lead. She probably does get off line sometimes. However, she checks up often and it's pretty easy to see when she's on a squirrel or something

Her body language is what I watch the most

Agree. I did buy a collar to help with that.

I don't think I could do it on a lead with my dog. He is way to big and fast. I could see a smaller dog though. I would be too concerned with coyotes, etc on a smaller dog as I have lost a couple of wiener dogs to coyotes in the past.

Dogs are so much better working off a lead where they can cover ground and really work a track. I worked mine on a lead in the beginning and it was absolutely miserable getting drug around through that crap. As soon as I cut her loose and let her do her thing she was 10×s better off. Can work a track exactly how she wants to and I'm not holding her back. The big plus is I wasn't getting drug through all that crap anymore!

That whole series “the Callie chronicles” are great to watch. He does an excellent job of showing the track on his OnX tracker. He also explains what to expect due to different hits. He shows tracks they don’t find the animal as well. Definitely has made me better at finding deer.

Glad they found it. Get that dog off a lead. What a PIA that must be! I've seen a lot of REALLY good deer dogs work, and there is no way they could do it on a lead.

Just curious but wouldn't a hunter check the closest water anyway? I would.

He's based out of Iowa I think and I could be wrong on this, but I think it is a law up there that tracking dogs must be on a lead.

I was thinking the same thing. Might have just been an inexperienced hunter, but I wish the narrator would have at least mentioned gut shot deer WILL go to water because I think that was the biggest take away from the scenario he was in, not the “Stinging Nettle”

Great video! I can't wrap my head around how a dog can differentiate between multiple different trails/tracks in the woods. Special animals for sure.

I can't either but I heard someone describe it like this once. If you or I walk into a kitchen we say "Mmm I smell apple pie". A dog or deer for that matter would walk into the same kitchen and say "MMM, I smell apples, cinnamon, butter, flour, etc." I don't know how they do it but they have the nose to distinguish between smells.

I read somewhere that theres a gland between the deers toes.. The hurt deer puts out a different smell than the other deer.. They aren't really tracking the blood..
