Thanks, Blue ticks and B&T's are awesome hounds. I have never run either but I have run my beagle with a few Friends that had them.

Scenthound ,
Have you read the book Go Find by L. Wilson Davis? It's an OLD book but very neat. He practically designed the tracking training for the DOD. my father had a bunch of old training books so he gave them to me and I was wondering if you had heard of it and what your thoughts were. The OB side of it is very dated, not what I would follow, but I figure you would enjoy if it not just for some history.

No I haven't, but I have heard of it. I may have to look into it ans see what I thinks.

When it comes to books on S/R there are a couple I recommend.

Thank your for those suggestions. That first one up there they seem to be biased towards German shepards huh!!!!! Now that second one i have read before, but never got any training information out of, but it was a wonderful story.

Shepards are really good at search and rescue. I always recommend the second one because it shows the bond that can be formed. It is always harder to lose a dog that you have formed a tracking partnership with than one that is just your buddy. I am not playing it down, but working hand and paw with a dog always brings the two of you closer together.

I guess because I was mentored I don't really depend on books to teach me much, lol. I find someone willing to pass on their knowledge and run with it.

I 100% agree to the bonding being very important. That was my biggest complaint with the way the USAF runs their kennels. The dogs are only with you at work and training then they get locked up the rest of the time.
