Deer Dog Question

I would like to know if anybody knows of what kind of dog would make a good trailing dog for downed deer ?Also how would you go about training the dog to go about finding a downed deer?

Deer Dog Question

I have no practical experience with this, but it is my understanding that blue ticks (coonhounds) are a good breed for blood tracking (they've got a nose for it).
