There are as many methods and theories on training a deer tracking dog as there is breeds of dogs. What I have found works for me and all the dogs I have trained and handlers I have mentored all begins with reading a few books!
If you are interested in getting started in deer tracking dogs read these books. Once you have read these books and get started we are always happy to help answer any trouble shooting or problem solving issues you may be facing.
Click the links to get these books which I feel are essential for every dog tracker starting out and there is even a ton of information that I feel every hunter should read to master the art of tracking.
Tracking Dog Theory and Methods, by Glen Johnson.
My personal favorite! In my opinion one of the best books on the topic of training a tracking dog.

Simply convert the "mantrailing scents" to using deer scents
