Trackfest 2014 to be held in North Carolina on May 17-19, 2014

Trackfest 2014

May 17 – 19, 2014
J. Robert Gordon Sandhills Field Trial Grounds
Hoffman, North Carolina

The United Blood Trackers is holding a three day Blood Tracking Workshop on May 17 – 19, 2014 at the J. Robert Gordon Sandhills Field Trial Grounds in Hoffman NC, 1 hour west of Fayetteville NC. 

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, Equipment Choices, GPS Use, and Working with Hunters. Again this year we will also be holding the popular 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 United Blood Trackers will offer evaluations for UBT-I and UBT-II on Monday, 5/18/2014. All evaluations will be done on leash. Please check for more information about evaluation requirements as well as more details about the event as they become available.
