Every year Deer Search presents Schlechtingen's Award (established by Lore Schlechtingen, Germany) to a handler who has taken most calls during the past tracking season. This year, for the 10th time in a row, is going to Tim Nichols from Granville, NY. Congratulations & many thanks to Tim for his outstanding service and dedication. In 2008 he went on 66 calls and recovered 17 deer. The picture shows Tim being presented with the Schlechtingen's Award by Bill Vogelin at the Deer Search Annual Banquet last Sunday.
