Chris Miller
Bloodhound Tracker
Feb. 24-27

Chris Miller was born in Kokomo, Indiana in 1987. He’s been hunting deer since the age of nine, and first got into hounds at age 10. Chris started with a pair of beagles, then moved on to coondogs and coyote hounds. He has always been passionate about hounds and tries to instill that love of hounds into his kids. Chris got his start in deer tracking eight years ago with a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He learned a lot and figured out he needed a dog with more tracking drive to suit his personality and style of tracking. He fell in love with bloodhounds, and they turned out to be the best choice. To this day he tracks with bloodhounds and and probably always will.

Seminar topic:

Tracking with a Hound and Why It’s So Important

In this seminar, Chris will cover what scent is used to track on, where it’s located on the deer, and why it’s so important to have a dog. This seminar will also explain the scent location, what causes the deer to put off that scent and why it goes away. Scenting conditions are are important, and he’ll touch on what can cause problems for the dog. Also:

  • recovery rates
  • shot location/deer behavior post-shot
  • How dogs are specifically trained for deer tracking

You won’t want to miss this unique seminar! And as a bonus, Bruno the bloodhound will be on hand to meet the audience!
