Digger turned one recently and his training has been going well so he’s come hunting on my last few outings. He has been working well and gets better each trip. He’s a very compliant dog and training him has been enjoyable.

Today we managed to get our first deer. I spotted them from a couple of hundred metres away before sneaking in to around 80m. Due to the wind Digger wasn’t aware of them until I shot and the second young buck ran off. He stayed steady throughout though and it’ll be a great learning experience for him.

The buck was in great condition with about 4 cm of fat on its back. His antlers were fully hard with a couple of tips coming through the velvet. He was shot with my R8 .223 using sierra 77gr TMKs and he dropped to the shot with a front chest shot.
Great work. Shooting a deer with your dog should really help them cement what its all about. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you. One of the things I enjoy about having a hunting dog is that extra motivation to get out for a hunt/walk/just outside for a bit of training. I’ll be trying to get as many deer on the ground in front of him this year to try and cement the process for him. Luckily I have a plenty of friends who enjoy venison and often return the favour with home grown veggies or wine.
