Default Good find

I have to of those little dogs. Got some of the best noses on the planet. I am in for this type of location of wounded game. We may be at the top of the food change but the nose is not as good as it could be.

Default Beagles:

Beagles are becoming popular for deer drives in the coastal South. The use of beagles is being driven (pun intended) by the increasing hunting lease costs and the resulting smaller acreage leased by hunting clubs.

Default "Never underestimate the power of my weiner"!

Is the t-shirt I would have purchased for one of my friends that favor "doxies"
above all other breeds if he wore t-shirts! The pint sized little hounds do have
a great nose on them that compares to the "super-nose" that my favourite
breed... the beagle has!

Hope my wife doesn't see this thread...she already thinks Pete, her weenie dog, walks on water.

Seriously, though, they do have a good nose and would make an excellent tracker.

When younger I did a lot of quail hunting. Didn't have a good dog to hunt 'dead' birds so one day I took the wife's 10 lb. cocker. Did great!

Default Bird dawg?

Snapper my first dog, a beagle/fox terrier was good at retrieving rabbits &
finding them but drew the line @ birds when he prematurely grabbed a quail I
had shot when it started "slapping him upside his face" spit the thing out &
gave me "the look" as if by "body language" said, "shoot it again...it's not
dead yet"!

A local man here also tracks wounded deer and elk. His two dogs are wire haired dachsunds. The dogs are kept on a leash when tracking because of the danger of them being attacked by coyotes or wild hogs.

Default Big nose in a small package!

There were several "Red Barons"/ red Doxies like "Bear" that lives next door
that Jethro mistook for him at the grand opening of the Cd,A dog park on
labor day!

As mentioned, the use of dogs to track wounded or dead large game is on the rise and legal in many areas. Humane thing to do. Actually using the dogs to chase or "herd" deer is illegal in many areas and rightfully so, in my opinion. So, before anyone attempts this, check your local laws.

As a side note, Ohio made it legal to use dogs to hunt turkeys in the fall season...I find this humorous for many reasons. Not the least of which is the fact that turkeys can fly. They also can run very fast. Another is how the heck do you train a dog to hunt a turkey?
