i have just went out and bought a male bluetick and i want to know if anyone has ever had any luck training them to run a deers blood trail, or if they just hit another animals scent and follow it. let me know if you have any experience. thanks
Well I new a guy that had a cousin do it once. The trick is to teach him to stay on the blood trail and not cold trail other scents. I think he used a blood stained rag tied to a rope and would drag it a little ways a reward the pup for finding it. Then move it farther and farther out. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
