    Dear all,

    After reading many of the accounts on dangerous game hunting in Africa, even when this included a wounded animal charging on the end, I never noticed that the dogs for tracking are used.

    I could not find any reference on the forum for this particular point, so I opened the separate thread.

    Why not?
    Using dogs for tracking wounded buffalo, for example is illegal in some/all countries?

    It could possibly save some lives, if dogs could find a wounded DG in the bush, and give advanced info on location?

    Mark,
    I believe dogs are often used to help locate wounded animals in Africa.
