Deer with Dogs
In the state I now live in, dogs are forbidden to be used in deer hunting. In fact, the only big game that you can have dogs to assist you is mountain lions. In California, you can take a dog deer hunting, but you can't use them to course them.
There is a guy I met in California that takes his shorthair deer hunting. He gets a deer every year. Before you say big deal, remember, California deer hunters have a ten-percent success rate, the lowest in the country. In Germany, shorthairs are expected to be able to help hunt not only for birds, but large and small game too. They have to have big game hunting ability to be certified. How they help, how they are used, I don't know.
Does anyone here use dogs to deer hunt?
Does your state even allow it?
How would a dog help in the pursuit of deer?
