It is great to see good dogs going to gifted and dedicated handlers who work in bear country. What Ray Maurier, Mike Lafleur and Steve Herriges have been doing with their dachshunds is going to impress a lot of hunters and add a new chapter to the lore of bear hunting.
|Steve Herriges from Wisconsin recovered his own bear next morning with help from Remi (Lasko von Moosbach-Zuzelek).|
|On the left: Mike Lafleur of www.trailsendguideservice.com and his wirehaired dachshund Ted (Billy's son) have already recovered another bear (we don't have a picture). The bear in the picture goes to Ray and Pam Maurier and their 13-month-old Tucker.|
|This is bear number #3 for Tucker. It is hard to believe that it is only September 17. Ray and Pam Maurier are a hard working team from Manchester, New Hampshire. For more info go to http://www.lightningmountainoutfitters.com|
