As we announced the Deer Search Annual Blood Tracking Competition was hosted this year by the Western New York Chapter on the weekend of April 18-19, 2009.
Of the seven entries only two dogs placed in the competition, which allows one hour for finishing the track. First place (Prize II, score 82) went to Tabitha Von Munterkeit (Wirehaired Dachshund), owned by Dale Clifford. The second place (Prize III, score 74) went to a German Shorthair Pointer Rio owned by Ron Hausfelder. Congratulations Tabitha and Rio!
Billy von Moosbach-Zuzelek handled by John Jeanneney was clocked out, but he was allowed to finish the certification track (certification does not pose the time limit) and got Prize II and score of 75.
