Default Hunt for antlers

This weekend I was able to get a hold of some deer antlers, and began
training Hugo to find them. He loves to track, so I figured it wouldn't be too
difficult to habituate some smell sensors on that scent.

Not rocket science, just went for walks in the woods where he can be off lead,
tossing it into the woods, hopefully so he didn't see it dive into the leaves, and would have to work his nose.
His amazing beek did what it does, and we had some serious fun, and he was excited to be working.

click above for more pics from the weekend.

It will be awhile before the deer start shedding antlers as they do late winter,
but hopefully we'll have a new way to goof off and find some trophies while doing so!
