Our son Dennis sighting and practicing with is bow before a deer bow hunt.
Rocky has been exposed to many smells of dead Deer and Deer blood as Dennis brings home deer to show us before being processed. And it has not caused Rocky to chase any live healthy deer that live in our back fields
My husband took our male GSP , Clyde, several times to track wounded deer. Clyde loved doing this and it did not induce him to chase live deer. He had such a strong tracking instinct, and he knew what he was being asked to do. He did find deer a couple of times, once he actually caught up with the deer and grabbed it. That was not too good as he ruined most of one whole ham on the back leg.
I like the idea of using the dogs for this as it is more humane for the deer if it is injured to go ahead and find it and not let it suffer. And not waste the meat. We primarily eat deer meat so it is a big loss if we don't get the deer. I feed the scraps after butchering to the dogs too, it's high quality protein for them. they love it.
