    Copper was 15 months old last deer season. She chased out 4 of the 5 deer we got.

    Pure beagle - but a bluetick. While everyone is familiar with the tri-colour beagle, lemon, redbone and blue tick are within the standard.
    Twenty years ago a bluetick was pretty rare - but people like them, so they are becoming more popular - similar to the tri-colour english springers,
    which are becoming pretty mainstream in the trialing circles.
    She's put on a bit of weight over the winter, but last weigh in at 11 months old was 18 lbs.

    BTW - on the year we has 5 guys hunting and everyone got a deer - no big bucks though. For 55B, with an approx 35% success rate, that's pretty decent hunting. The fifth deer was shot the morning after this was taken. Three of the five were from crown land. The deer pic - stick through the front feet and nose - that's how we drag out and hang our deer - unless it's a buck that is going to get mounted.

    Yes - she runs rabbits as well. We have cottontails here in Kanata and when she sees one when were walking her she goes nuts.
    Where I deer hunt - 55B - rabbits (varying hare) are almost extinct. Its been years since I've seen a rabbit up there.
    She did chase one last fall though - you can tell the difference in how she runs - moves slow and in a small area.

    When she's on a deer they both move pretty quick. The first deer we shot in front of her she ran 690 yards in a straight line in about 2 1/2 minutes.
    She's learned a bad habit from a purist perspective but it works okay for hunting. She sight-hunts if she can. When she sees a deer, she sight hunts it instead of using her nose. Piled on top of that, when she picks up a strong scent, she stands on her hind legs to get a better look around. Twice I've spotted deer watching us when she did this (but it hasn't happened during deer season).
