So a few folks have been asking me about how much Im going to charge for tracking services. We had a discussion a while back discussing what everyone thought was fair and after taking that into consideration along with some economics.this is what Ive finally decided on.

For now since Otis is still young Im not going to charge a price for simply coming out. However, if we make contact with the deer then there will be a $100 finders feeand if we put the deer on the tailgate the fee with be $150. Just to be upfront about it, eventually there is going to be a charge assessed for showing up. I just dont feel comfortable charging folks for that right now though until Otis gets some more experience under his belt and I have full confidence in him.

Also, for allowing me to use the forum to reach such a mass of hunters.the finders fee on the first deer found for an aldeer member with be given back to the forum. I sure hope we can get on one opening weekend of bowseason for one of you guys. Me and Otis are both chomping at the bit ready to go. smile

I'm going to mainly track within a 50 mile radius of Macon Co but I will still travel furtber once I know Otis is ready for any situation we come across. I'm thinking I'll just have a mileage fee for anything over 50 miles.....maybe somethimg like a $1 per mile out to 100 miles.

One thing you may want to consider is contacting some of your local schools that do the fundraiser hunts. I know the one I help with here in Luverne, there are wounded deer daily, and all within a reasonable distance of one another. We are always scrambling to find a tracking dog around so if you could be "on call" that would probably ensure you some work.

That's a good idea....Thanks! It seems like there may be a hunt like that in Bullock Co as well. I may be wrong though.

Do any of you guys know somewhere in Montgomery or Auburn that can attach an engraved info tag onto my GPS tracking collar? I would like to have my contact info on Otis's collar just in case something ever went wrong. Right now I have the info on a normal collar that was given to me at a tracking convention in GA. I would like to have it on his GPS collar as well though. You never know what might happen one day....

I was an instructor at that convention/seminar in Ga. & I will vouch for Otis & his handlers work. With a little practical experience he will be top notch. I would say offer him a little tip for "just coming out" because I believe Otis will "account" for your deer if nothing else. As for myself, I still can travel the two hours to the Dothan area to track, mostly after Ga. season ends on January 10th, 2016. 229-225-9901

Just read Ron Jolly's article on CNC and Otis in American Frontiersman magazine. Good stuff.

If your GPS transmitter can be attached to any collar, Orvis sells a heavy duty nylon collar engraved with the dog's name and your phone number.
