started mine with fur in a sock, hid all over yard after i dragged it for awhile. repetition is key.what would be the best way to start my dogs to track and hunt??? I'm in Upper Michigan and have alot of snow and rabbits snowshoes & cottentails..lot of swamps for hunting please help I'm new at this
good morning joe.
i am not a hunter at all... however i went home for x.mas and my uncle took molly out in the bush and he is a hunter and said she really loved the rabbit tracks, ignored the deer and he had never walked her before. molly loved the adventure and when they returned my uncle gave her some deer meat and wold game and she was in heaven. it's tricky as molly is 2 and had she'd been trained earlier maybe teaching her to return with a call or whistle but at this stage if i let her off her leash she will run away and so will your dog too.
good luck let me know how it works out and send me a picture of your beagle. molly's pictures are on the profile.
have a great day!
