Re: Tracking Dogs
There are lots of guys who already have trained blood tracking dogs in PA. Those with Drahthaars and Kurzhaars. There might even be some others under german testing systems.
These are trained dogs, not dogs that will be trained. Its part of the testing in order to breed.
But to open this up to just so called professionals or some guy who gets a cerificate from deer tracker.com is just ridiculous. I have no support for it if the laws says tracking needs to be performed by a certified dog or a professional.
Why would you have to have the dog certified? Either you trained him to perform the task so you use its skill, or you take a dog out on a leash that is of no help in finding the deer. To tell everyone they can only use a certified dog just seems like a special interest group that is looking for a way to make a buck.
The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
