Deer Search is a non-profit organization, funded only by donations. All Deer Search members are non-paid volunteers who track in their spare time. We have a Leashed Tracking Dog License to track wounded deer or bear with a dog in New York State.
Our license allows us to carry a firearm to dispatch a wounded deer or bear during all seasons and at night. Deer Search volunteers pay their own expenses such as dogs, license, equipment etc. Most Deer Search members are hunters as well as trackers. We give up hunting time to help you.
All donations go to the club to help pay for expenses (insurance, etc.), not directly to Deer Search members.
