When your dove hunting, but there is quail on the other side of the fence.

Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

If it isn't white it is not a birddog.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

I have a little Brittany gyp that wouldn’t hunt a lick at two years old. She was clingy and always underfoot. I would have shot her but she was my wife’s pet. We were heading back to camp downwind after it started raining one afternoon. I threw her out to let her run on the road heading back to camp. All the sudden sh gets birdy and goes upwind under the fence line of the 25K acre ranch we’re hunting on. She looked damn good pointing a covey right over the fence.

I looked at her for a few seconds quivering on point. What do you do in this situation? I jumped the fence shot a bird off the point and she retrieved it. She kept working and found three more singles.

The last day of season that year we let her hunt by herself at the end of the day. We killed 17 pointed bird over her that evening.

6 years later She’s pointed 1000’s of bird and is my youngest sons shadow and best friend. She’s all natural because she’s too soft to train. I wonder what would have happened if I had called her off that first bird because it was over the fence?

She will never be the top dog in my string but she’s got her place and is the only dog that gets to sleep in the house.

I’LL MAKE IT A QUESTION FOR THE DOG MEN:

WOULD YOU JUMP THE FENCE AND SHOOT THE BIRDS
OVER THIS WEAK GYP, OR CALL HER OFF???

Scalebuster. I would have cleared the fence as well, i try to always follow this rule with my bird dog's,, trust but verify,, has paid off many times. Couple years ago I was hunting behind a couple brits and one of them peals off and goes down a pasture road that was freshly graded and locks up on two tumble weeds, the only cover around. She is a quivering statue, I walked up kicked tumble weed and it explodes birds everywhere..... man that was a good shoot.glad I trusted that lil brit.

Scalebuster, Although I am pleading the 5th, the proof is in the pudding. That little Brit learned how to get paid right then and there. When I was about the age of your youngest boy, my grandpa that taught me how to train a bird dog told me “the first time your dog does everything right, shoot the bird for it, and don’t miss”.

My old Papaw said the EXACT same thing. I’m glad we have good shock collars now. The way he trained bird dogs looks a lot different than the way I do! Luckily I’ve never had to pick a Pointer up by the ears and beat him up against the side of the truck.

I’m now listening my to my boy drying this dog off after a bath with a blow dryer. How the world has changed since Papaws day.
