UBT Trackfest 2013 and East Coast Lacy Fun Day

The United Blood Trackers is going to hold a three day Blood Tracking Workshop on JUNE 1-3 at Coon Rock Horse and Hunt Club, Arena, WI, 45 minutes west of Madison. This workshop is for both beginner and advanced dogs and handlers as well as anyone else interested in learning more about the use of blood tracking dogs for the recovery of wounded big game. There will be plenty of hands-on training in the field for dogs and handlers as well as presentations on topics such as Training Techniques, Working with Puppies and Adolescents, Equipment Choices, GPS Use, and Working with Hunters. As a new feature this year we will also be holding a Hit Site Evaluation Seminar. This new seminar will focus on reading sign at the hit site as well as reading sign found along the trail in order to develop the proper strategy for tracking that particular animal. The Workshop Instructors will be UBT Judges: John Jeanneney (NY), Larry Gohlke (WI), Andy Bensing (PA), Cheri Faust (WI), Chuck Collier (MI) and Al Wade (AL).

The premium list for this event is located at
We hope to see you there. We'd also appreciate any help you can give the UBT in getting the word out about this event.

UBT testing will also be available at East Coast Lacy Fun Day, where all breeds are welcomed. This event is going to take place soon, on March 15-16, in LaGrange, GA. For more information contact Rebecca Ferrell at or 850-508-6981.

I wish I had time to travel this summer! I would love to go to trackfest since it is less than 2 hours from my parents place. Maybe my next US trip will coincide with some UBT or NATC events. I'd love to learn more about the American system.
