deer dogs (preban)

Recommended Posts


:yes:Caught a fair few Roe in the woods,...if they rise close, jumping up out of brash , cover or bracken, a fast type can quickly take them down,...but, it is a practice, fraught with danger,.I've had dogs get real busted up in the woods,..

In my experience,..it's a game of chance,.best avoided,..it just ain't worth the risk... :no:

 

Yip agree..

deer jumping up in front of you in this way in woods are usually one in the bag..and we have all done that, and I would be so disappointed if any of my dogs missed a chance like that..

But chase a roe and it jumping into Harwood or Kielder Forrest or some of the big woods where I live, and that will be the last you see of that white arse again..

Seen them jump into a strip would with the dog following, and out the other side and the dog getting it in the next open field..but again, everyone who had a deer hunting head on (Pre ban) will have seen similar.

Roe are no great challenge for a decent lurcher, or the man with a bit savvy..they are a creature of habit, they can be easily worked into situations where it makes them easier to get..or worked out of woods for a dog to catch, on the lamp, they are even easier..and nice to eat.

And as said above, nowerdays best avoided..

every thread turns messy on here :laugh: i would have loved to have done it properly pre ban, i remember as i kid i nearly wet myself when it come bounding across the field. i think it sticks out more just cause i never caught one and wont ever get the chance to be honest.

 

 

 

easy to catch?? i doubt it have you seen the feckers shift....

when i had my none ped whippet bitch, there were few males down the track 22 -23in  34 lb  that kill foxes and had few roe,  they strong tough little dogs, i like the none ped whippet great little dogs. but for deer you need a bigger type dog, that can deal with big and small deer , somthing about 25-26in  60-70lb , and one with bit of grit in it , for this type quarry ,
