Stopped hunting years ago , to many idiots in the woods. I was at a local restaurant early one morning. Other hunters were also there and I overheard this conversation at the next table. One hunter asked , Did you see any Deer yesterday. His Buddy , no but I got a sound shot at one. I could not resist asking , What's a Sound Shot ????
"O" That's when you hear the deer but don't see it. Finished my breakfast , loaded up and went straight home.
Back when I was hunting and going with the guys who ran dogs there were two different breeds. Both were for Deer. Either the Walker Hounds or Beagles.
Beagles are more fun , they love to chase Rabbits. With some training you can get then to chase Deer. As a side benefit they make nice pets and intruder alarm systems when keep in the house. I had a Beagle/ Basset combination I called a Bagel. He would turn himself inside out when we loaded up and went out to the St Johns River marsh to ( hunt ) Rabbits , mostly it was for him to run Rabbit's and get some good exercising fun.
