Has anyone here ever hear of taking a dog along to use as a sight dog? Not for the use of running the deer to you but just to set by your side and does the spotting for you. Yesterday when I was out trying to train a dog for squirrel hunting, a couple of times while we was setting next to a tree the dog would see something in the far distant woods. I wouldn't see anything but when I would raise up my binoculars and look in the same direction as the dog was looking, I would then be able to make out a deer. Although the first time we had a nice size buck come within 15 yards of us and the dog didn't even see it at all. The dog was too busy looking in the other direction. But our second and third deer sighting the dog noticed them coming first before I did. On the second sighting there was 4 does heading in our direction and I could have easily shot the lead doe before she noticed that we was even in the area. The third sighting the deer was in such heavy brush way off that I couldn't even make out if it was a doe or buck. If it hadn't been for the dog I wouldn't have known that deer existed at all. The problem is that here in Oklahoma the game laws states that we cannot take deer with the aid of a dog. So I guess that covers all loopholes. Usually when you think of using a dog, you think of the dog(s) actually running the deer to you.
