Most of the handlers I know and myself use more feet and hide than blood. I use a little blood to get a new dog started, but mostly just frozen legs we pull out of the freezer or a small piece of hide. Wounded deer give off a different scent that good dogs are able to pick up. Your dog shouldn’t need blood to be able to locate a deer. And if it does you’re going to leave a lot of deer in the woods.

Thanks guys for giving me some ideas to help train my puppy. Someone also told me that you could get beef liver from the store and make a drag with it for the puppy to find and he would respond just like it would be a wounded deer. I just bought some to try out so I'm looking forward to seeing the dogs reaction. I don't know how many of you bow hunters have used a good dog to find your deer but it is truly amazing what they can do. I friend of mine I met this past year (Jay Graham) has a couple of black mouth cur dogs that found several deer for me that I would no doubt lost if not for them. I have trailed at least a couple hundred or more bow killed deer through the years and can't even come close to comprehending how easy this is for a dog. I just wish we would have used them 40 or 50 years ago.

I've heard this, too - that they don't trail the blood as much as certain pheromones (other chemicals?) put off by a wounded deer. Is that true?

Thanks Tjc! I guess we all want what we don't have, because now I find myself wanting a brindle! lol
