Monster bucks and their Midwest habitat often create very difficult tracking challenges. When you consider all that you have invested in your hunt and the trophy you may lose, utilizing anything less than the best trailing team and techniques is simply foolish.

Huge bodied, mature bucks are extremely tough animals. sometimes going long distances even with decent hits. Combined with tightly controlled private ground and you have situations where it is often best to wait significant periods of time before taking up the trail. Going too soon could push a deer that has not yet succumbed to its wound onto neighboring property. Others could take it, or access could be denied. Unusual temperatures, high winds, rain, snow, and other difficult environmental factors are common during the Midwest season. Having the best cold-nosed trailing ability is a necessity for truly professional work.

We use true bloodhounds, regarded by most to be the world’s best breed of trailing dog. A professionally trained bloodhound represents the trophy hunter’s best chance at recovering a wounded deer under the most difficult of conditions. Having the best nose possible is important, and can often make the difference for you.
