Here Sypris is in her stay position for 5 min waiting for me to giver her the command to start tracking. So while laying the track the right hoof fell off my tracking shoe so 80% of the track was laid with 1 hoof. The track was .58 of a mile long. As expected she had a couple of minor issues by over shooing the first 90% turn. It took us close to 27 min to complete the track. No blood was used because I want my hounds to learn how to lock on to the deers individual scent.
After completing the 38 hour old mock track she then completed the zig zag mock track. She is ready to start helping Michigan whitetail hunters.
Tracker Rob & Sypris.
