Is it even legal to use a pink bow to shoot a deer?:-)

I start my pups at 6 weeks laying pretty clear blood trails leading to the food bowls. I do this twice a week at 6, 7 and 8 weeks until the pups go to their homes.

This is a good way to get the pup focused on the blood as a means of getting to something special. There are a bunch of books on the topic. Here are a couple websites that should point you in the right direction:

Good luck
