Truffle Hunt 3rd March 2012
4th March 2012
We had planned to hunt for truffles again in late January.

Sadly the ground was first too waterlogged and then we had two weeks of constant frost which turned the soil to concrete. The highly skilled dog we had used in 2010 and 2011 could not be contacted. None of the dog club members nor the truffle experts knew where she had moved to, though rumour was that she had disappeared to Northern France. We decided to go for numbers and arranged for the entire truffle section of the Auch Dog Club to come and hunt in early March. The team turned out to be four lovely young girls and five dogs. Unfortunately their experience, human and canine, was pretty limited. The activity level was very high and we investigated dozens of locations at which the dogs became excited but in the end we found nothing.
