Miscellaneous about dog hunting
We use B-bark dog trackers from Bearproof and that makes it possible for participants to follow our dogs through their mobile phones. With this you can see the whole team and all the dogs. It’s very important for the safety.
We use terriers in case of the fox goes into den. In case of safety there are maximum 3-4 participants when hunting with terriers. All others continue hunting with hounds.
