    Wonderful read and I'm glad you copied and pasted it! I think many others will find it interesting as well. I think most avid hunters should have their own tracking dog, if they want to have a better chance of recovery. Plus what a great thing to do! I started working on my Redbone Coonhound, using all of Dog Bone Hunter's matterial. I rehomed her, if that shares how her heart wasn't into what I was...OR...maybe she thought she needed a better trainer. Hee😉 Thanks for posting and sharing with all of us! I can imagine how thankful hunters are once their trophy is recovered! Awesome job!

    @Lisa most people aren’t cut out to have their own tracking dog. There is a great amount of training involved and expense. I don’t think that most people should have their own tracking dog, but they should get to know the nearest tracker to them before hand and utilize them if needed. Using a tracker a couple times is way cheaper than owning your own tracking dog.

    @Jared if you say so. I'd have my own, if I hunted more frequently. I'd put the time in and make it happen. But thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    @Jared if you say so. Some may not want to fool around with training their own dog, that is understandable. It would be easier to pay someone else to just do the tracking. However, if I was back in Montana and hunting as often as I was, I personally would put the time in and make it happen. It would be a great investment and very rewarding to have one's own tracking dog. That is my feelings on the matter, and thank you for sharing yours. I hope you and your wife continue to have great success in other hunters utilizing you. It is better to have you to contact and retrieve taken game, than losing one's trophy.

    @Lisa I wasn’t meaning to direct anything to you directly. Just stating that most people won’t put the time into training a tracking dog. It really takes a lot of time to train a dog to get to a certified level. The average dog owner/hunter won’t put the dedication it takes in to having a good tracking dog. Just my opinion, coming from a guy that has trained hundreds of different hunting dogs for over 40 years.

    @Jared I've only trained maybe 4, but never one to track. I have all the matterials to do so, but at the age of 54, I don't believe I'll be hunting as frequently as I would if I was way younger. If I could rewind the clocks, I'd put the time in and do so. I like being more self sufficient and have the kind of mental drive to do so. Certification is definitely great if you have a business utilizing dogs for a money maker. It sounds better and is a great tool. It would be awesome to see the dogs you both have working. I'm sure it is impressive. I'm just saying for me personally, I'd be getting off my butt and training one if I hunted more often and were younger. I wouldn't need my dog certified...I'd just need him/her to find what I shot.😉 😊 Again continued success on your tracking business. I know it is needed.👍🏻

    @Lisa the certification is just a way to ensure the dog and the handler have what it takes to recover most deer. With any dog sport, you don’t make much money after factoring in all the time, equipment, and miles in. The people do it because they love it.

    @Jared Sounds great. Great success to you both

    Awesome. Wife and I have been tracking/recovering for about 3 years. I'm going to try myself with a newer dog this year. Keep it up!

    Nice! What kind of dogs do you track with?

I find my peace in the woods, the creek, and the lake, and I enjoy sharing that with my family. I appreciate creation and the conservation of it.
