The 2016 version of the 2nd edition of Tracking Dogs for Finding Wounded Deer constitutes a major update and expansion. It was produced ten years after the second edition was originally published, and it reflects the development of big game tracking to include moose in Quebec and elk in the Rocky Mountains.
The chapters on training have been increased from two to six. There is an entirely new chapter on “Canine Adolescence” and the training problems associated with it.
Thanks to the inputs of my southern and Texas friends, there is much more information on training and working with tracking dogs off lead.
We have done our best to keep up with the rapidly changing technologies in equipment used in tracking. This extends from GPS equipment to better lights for night work.
The state legislations pertaining to tracking dogs have been expanding and changing so rapidly that it has been impossible to keep up with it all. We refer you to state Fish and Wildlife websites for current information.
The current version has 424 pages, 7 new chapters (28 in total), new appendices, updated b&t and color pictures, and an index. The cover is updated as well and its color is green.
