Upcoming blood tracking workshop (UBT Trackfest) in Michigan

United Blood Trackers will hold its Trackfest 2010 on May 15, 16, and 17, 2010 in Marshall Michigan. Marshall is 35 miles north of the point where Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana come together. On Saturday and Sunday there will be both classroom presentations and field work. Monday will be reserved for those individuals wishing to test their dogs on the UBT I or UBT II. Further details will be coming out soon.

John and I are co-founders of United Blood Trackers, the organization dedicated to promoting resource conservation through the use of trained tracking dogs in the ethical recovery of big game. UBT supports recovery efforts afield, the education of hunters, the training and testing of dog handlers and their dogs, and legislative efforts to promote blood tracking.

UBT fulfills its mission by:
  • Making hunters and future handlers aware of how a good tracking dog can reduce the loss of big game.
  • Providing support to handlers training their dogs.
  • Encouraging our members to assist hunters with lost game recovery afield.
  • Sharing information and advice with those who seek to establish the legal and ethical use of tracking dogs in their own states.
  • Sponsoring testing opportunities for those who would like to document the capabilities of their dogs.
  • Organizing blood tracking workshops as a means of promoting excellence and encouraging fellowship among members.
