Echo and Sage

I took the dogs ( Echo, Jetta, and Sage ) to a friends property today to get some exercise in the timber. My friend has beagles and lives on land that holds lot’s of wildlife including rabbits. Right from the get go the dogs got on a rabbit. Pretty quickly I heard a noise that didn’t sound good. When I got to the dogs Echo and Sage were playing tug of war with the rabbit. The dogs do occasionally catch a rabbit but it doesn’t happen alot. The day ended up being a good one for the dogs. They trailed numerous rabbits, and also trapped a possum under a log.  I got to hear Sage voice for the first time when trailing a rabbit. Echo and Jetta are experienced and both voice well. I have been keeping Sage off rabbit’s hoping to keep her more focused on deer tracking.  She is young . Towards the end of the run today the dogs did jump a doe deer. We were concerned that there may be a fawn laying near so I hooked the dogs up and headed off. It was getting warm anyhow, and time to go.
