took 3 nice bunnies today, crockpot steaming
where do u hunt i'm in east tx lots of rabbits but also lots of deer do u have a problem with your dogs running deer
how can u keep the dogs from running deer if u are running rabbits???
I tried rolling in the barrel didnt work either I just bought some deer break and put on scent drag I drug it around put shock collar on him let him go right were drug scent he smelled it then started looking around then left it I was told he is sight hunting the deer and that is the hardest to break them from but im going to try my best
This is new to me so when I get to that point I see what the dogs do and go from there we have deer eating the same as the rabbits eat, in deep snow and sedar swamps hard too keep apart with all the deep snow

Dogs on deer
I second RCS's suggestion on the E-collars. IMO, its the only way to break them from running trash. You need to be able to either see them running the deer in order to correct them right away or set them up by taking them out and intentionally putting them on deer. Let them follow the scent or see them run the deer for about 20 yards, yell, "NO!" and give them a strong correction. It should only take once or twice for them to come running back to you as soon as they smell deer.
