Here’s a fun way to get your dog used to the smell of deer! Place some skin on one side and hide it in an area where they’ll find it. When you see them chewing or playing with this piece, reward him verbally while giving praise; eventually make sure he knows how hard finding these hides are by making them harder & more difficult- but always give treats too 🙂


Tracker dogs are great for hunting injured deer, but what good is one of the most sensitive noses on Earth if you can’t track it down? Dogs have an amazing ability to keep chasing their prey even when all hope seems lost. You’ll never again spend hours tracking a wounded buck with only 50/50 odds at success! Teach your pup how easy this task really is by giving him some training wheels – teach ’em anything from finding drugs or bombs now so he’s ready whenever there’s work needing done around these parts
We use Tracker Dogs every year during our firearms season because we know once those doors open everything will be coming through fast-and

Defining Tasks

Tracking a deer can be difficult for even the most experienced hunters. This is where training your dog comes in handy! When you train them, make sure that they are properly aligned with what’s legal where YOU live and hunt – some states allow leashes while others don’t; there may also exist specific ways of finishing off an animal once we find our shot-wounded prey like using only one firearm or waiting until nightfall before continuing tracking efforts (should these circumstances arise).

Getting Started

The best way to teach your dog how use their nose is by using a few supplies, including:
A pair of shoes with prints on them (or any other scent-bearing object). This will help familiarize the pup early in life so they learn quickly when hunting for scents later down the line! A toy from home that has been washed thoroughly before training – why leave anything behind? Some treats or food bowls filled up just enough so there’s always something available during sessions

To become a skilled field training, you’ll need plenty of time and patience as well as the right location. The best place for this type work would be in an open area with some woods on either side–pure grass fields are perfect! All methods assume that your dog has already mastered basic commands like “sit.”

1. Start by teaching your dog the basic commands of sit, stay, come, and down. This will give you a good foundation on which to build further training.

2. Once your dog has mastered the basics, you can begin teaching him or her to track deer. Begin by taking your dog for walks in areas where deer are known to live or frequent.

3. As you walk, keep your dog on a leash and allow him or her to sniff around. If your dog shows interest in a particular area, stop and let him or her investigate further.

4. Once your dog has found a deer track, encourage him or her to follow it. You can do this by offering treats or verbal praise.

5. If your dog loses the scent, simply backtrack until he or she picks it up again. Remember to be patient and keep your training sessions fun for both you and your dog!
