Old hunter got an education
Got an education on tracking dogs. Dogs that go out to find missing deer, in a state that has legal tracking dogs.
I learned the common mistakes made before calling a dog tracker. And common misconceptions about tracking dogs. I even found some postings about the real cost of using a dog tracker.
That's a cost of hunting, I'm a real newbie on. I never did need a tracking dog. It's a good thing I started in PA, hunting in the swamps. Learned to shoot the deer and drop them with no tracking.
Hunting is sure getting expensive for newbies these days.
