Radar, a tracking dog at NorthCountry Whitetails

NorthCountry Whitetails run by Craig and Neil Dougherty has published its 2010 Pre-Season Report. To acces it go to Field Reports at and click on 2010 Pre-Season. It is a very interesting read for New York deer hunters.

Radar (Quentin von Moosbach-Zuzelek) is mentioned in the report:

Radar is a Wirehaired Dachshund now almost 5 months old. We have taken (and passed)  NY’s Tracking Dog Handler test and Neil and Craig are now “legal” to track wounded deer with a dog. His training is progressing nicely and he can follow 12-24 hr. old blood trail with little difficulty. We have always kept Labs so this is a new venture for us, but Radar is well bred (thanks to John and Jolanta Jeanneney) and takes to his work naturally. We will use him on most of the deer we take this year for experience as he will still be plenty young. Hopefully, we won’t have a real need with a wounded deer but, we all know it happens.

Good luck Craig with Radar! We are looking forward to hearing about his work and training.
