Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and welcome to Just Answer. To track you want a scent hound such as a blood hound, fox hound, or beagle. (there are also other breeds of scent hounds). Scent hounds pick up many scents so you are going to need the scent of a deer and train the dog to that. If you go to a field dog /hunting/gun dog shop you can find different types of scents , however training it to find a wounded deer may not be possible , more likely it will find any deer within it's sense of smell, not necessarily a wounded one.
as for training you will need to get a couple of books or dvd's to show you how to train for scent and how to weed out other smells, such as human. I would check out all options as it pertains to picking a dog. On one hand if you get a puppy you can train them yourself, on the other hand someone may have a strong scent adult hound for sale and you will know what that dog can do.
This site offers both dvd and books.
