Upcoming workshops and seminars

A down side of tracking wounded deer is the frequent discovery that the coyotes got there first and devoured the venison. “The Coyotes Don’t Wait” and that is the tile of a panel discussion that will be given at the New York Bowhunters Meeting and Banquet on April 4 at Syracuse, NY. Participants will be trackers Kevin Armstrong, Gary Huber and John Jeanneney.

Quebec is a Canadian province surging with interest in the use of tracking dogs to find wounded moose, bear and whitetails. Last spring the Quebec Association of Tracking Dog Handlers hosted a workshop presented in French by John Jeanneney from New York State. This spring, on April 25-26, the Association will offer a second workshop featuring Patrice Stoquert and Philippe Rainaud, two experienced “conducteurs” from the multi-breed tracking organization in France.
