View Full Version : Deer Recovery (Blood-Trailing) Dog Available

Hi Folks-

As you may have heard, it is now legal for a dog to be used in the recovery of a wounded deer in OH, provided that the dog is leashed.

I've got an 18 month old yellow lab that I've been training as a deer recovery dog since she was a tiny puppy. Last season she found 4 deer, and I'd like to keep her active this year.

If you have a deer down, and could use some help with recovery - give me a shout and let me know. I'll bring her out and we'll see what we can do to help.

I'm located in Columbus, OH - and have a farm near Athens, OH. My time is split between the two. I would be willing to drive a good ways for a promising recovery opportunity. Needless to say, time matters - and the sooner you contact me, the more likely we are to be successful.

**I am NOT charging for this, I simply want to give my dog as much practice as possible.** I'd appreciate a contribution to cover gasoline costs, but even that is negotiable.

I've also got plenty of free time during the day....

You're welcome to call me on my cell at 614-570-1670, I'll also try to check in here for PMs. *Do not call my cell for any reason other than help with deer recovery - no telemarketers or solicitors please*

Wondering what the catch is? There isn't one. I think this is fun and just want to work my dog. You and I both benefit - although there are no guarantees. My dog is good, but she's also still learning....

Be safe out there,

PS: Moderators: I'll cross post this a couple places... if you feel it's inappropriate for this forum category, please delete it and accept my apologies.
