I was suspicious of two young dogs and deer and had the perfect opportunity to catch them in the act .I was walking them in and seen a yearling doe busting across my field so I just stood still and hid.Pup one came across it and turned into the thicket like she never smelled a thing so I think great! I see pup two headed toward the deer trail and she dropped her head with her butt shaking so I bust her with the collar.Well the male pup hears the devil attacking his buddy and runs in to check it out but when he hits the deer scent he opened and the electricity grabbed him.this had pup two running looking for her sister who about this time jumped a rabbit and that got all three back focused on business of running a rabbit and the good thing is they never knew I was involved and hopefully think that deer scent is some bad stuff.

If they are going to where the deer ran and you marked it well and know that they are on a deer, fry them. As you go out and hunt it may get questionable, rabbits will run a deer runway and individuals think they are on a deer. Be careful and make sure they are on the right track.
On snow here in Michigan rabbits will run a deer runway any and every time, young dogs have to be deer proof and you trusting them on the rabbit not deer.

Good luck!

At the Derby trial Saturday. We were in an eight dog winner's pack. We were running in the wild. We had got a rabbit up and all dogs were running. Two deer took off out of the brush. Three of the dogs swapped over to the deer. We were told to handle our dogs and try to help catch the three. They had crossed a busy road. The does circled back across the road. They caught them there. They picked all three up and we finished the trial. No collar at all and a lot of acres. It's scary with pups. Sachell had rode the fire once before. It must have worked.
