Just another method from the peanut gallery.
When I got Tessa we walked the secluded area near home along the Delaware River with my .22 revolver. I let her get out ahead of me and fired a CB cap when she wasn,t looking. She spun at the sound of the report to gauge my reaction, (very important), and I acted like nothing happened.
The first day was three well spaced CB shots into the ground, and a few days later we returned with .22shorts, then flollowed that trip with longs, then lr....
Three years later, and a whole bunch of groundhogs, Tessa lays alongside me on the edge of a hedgerow anxiously awaiting the rifle report and the command to retrieve the hog.
A little at a time, and dont show a negative reaction.
Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
