Lola is almost seven months and in Nov. it will be deer season here in Alabama. I'm going to train her to track wounded deer, i'm getting too old to be on my hands and knees for three hours turning over leafs to see if there's blood on it. My question is should i focus on blood or the actual deer scent. If you use blood, how do you keep it from coagulating? My plan was to take the tail or appendage from one of the first deer of the year and some blood. Then work with her at home and set up very short fake trails, heavily praise her when she completes it, then extend the length. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
