Just want to say thanks for Tom and his dog meg for coming down and looking for our deer lets hope he is still alive. I want to say that his dog was the most impressive thing I've ever seen out a dog hands down it had been 24 hrs from the time the deer was shot and had rained all night and she picked up from the point of impack and tracked that deer for mor than a half a mile and she traveled 1.1 miles awesome dog

I would love to see the dog in action. With a deer having a nose as good as a dogs, this should put to bed all you scent control guys, argument about controlling scent. 24 hrs later and after a rain, and the dog was still able to track the deer. You can't defeat those kind of abilities.

They found one for me 2 years ago. I wasn't familiar with deer tracking dogs and I thought they were joking when they pulled those two dogs out. I didn't really know what to expect, I was thinking maybe blood hounds or something. It was right the opposite. It didn't take long watching them hunt to realize they were first class. On the way to look for the deer I asked him if he thought he could find it and he said if its dead they'll find it. from what I saw from them I would agree. If you have a dead deer you can't find I'd highly recommend trying them out.

Tom and Jackie told me the rain is helpful. I guess a total flood would wash it out but a shower helps the dogs. Kinda like when the air is humid and heavy deer smell you quicker than when the air is dry and light. I know deer can smell really well, but I don't for a minute believe they can smell as well as a cold nosed hound.

Deer have 297 million olfactory receptors in their nose, dogs have 220 million.

Anyone who reads the above link, and still thinks that their fooling a deer's nose with manmade chemicals and clothing, is only fooling themselves. Save your money.

She cant find them all, but she keeps impressing us. Jack has a better nose and we are 100% sure of this but he lacks the experience that she has.

Dashaunds never cease to amaze me, them jokers can smell! I don't have a wire hair, but we got two long haired ones. About 6 years ago, dog was 2 or 3 yr old, a guy shot a huge 12 point on his land above me, he got 160 acre track. Deer ran down the mountain on me, I got some brutal terrain in some spots. That buck made it all the way to the bottoms before he died, the guy that shot came and asked if he could look for the deer, folks said sure we will go with you. Our little dashaund smelled him out in 10 minutes. They got some good noses

Do olfactory receptors work the same in deer versus dog? I guess my question is a dog keener on some smells and deer on others? Are smells all the same?
More times than I care to count or remember I had deer cross the trail I've walked to my stand and not be alarmed whatsoever. But I bet a man tracking bloodhound would have treed me ,no problem.

Not sure about that, although a bloodhound is trained to trail a mans scent.

Correct , and a deer is conditioned and / or born, to be alarmed, and run like the wind.

I've had deer follow my trail in to the tree & stand directly downwind of me as recently as Saturday, but I feel sure they knew I was there. I've hunted the same spot & had deer blow at me from about 100 yards away. I don't think deer respond the same way twice to tell you truth, they do what they feel at the moment.
I do use acorn cover scent on my boots and occasionally spray doe pee when they are near the rut, but I think I get almost as many negative reactions to it as I do positive.

When y'all figure out what they'll do next please let me know.

We have tried but the dogs are to possessive of their find and they end up tearing each other up. They seem to work better by themselves. Jack is going to get his turn because Meg is going into heat and we are going to give it a try with a dog in Montgomery.

I'll testify to that, when they reach a dead deer they chew on the deer a while then on each other a while! Get them away from the deer and give them a few minutes, all is well.
