Here is my brother and Murphy the Brittney spaniel hunting chukars this past weekend. The point yielded birds, the shooting did not. I traded for murph as a pup and trained him the first year, then gave him to my brothers boy when he graduated high school. Now I still get to hunt behind him
Here's mine, a Pudelpointer named Chewie. Hunts land or water for birds, points upland birds, tracks most anything, retrieves to hand, and defends our camp from bears. He's a good companion in the bush or at home.
My two dogs Johnny (English pointer) now deceased and Spot (German wire hair) now much older outside Yellowstone in Montana. Yes I bought them already named. They probably had 50,000 miles in back seat of my truck.
This is yesterday and the first outing for these two. Rossi is my pointing black lack and Judge is my chesapeake bay retriever. I knocked down a pair of passing canada geese, one on land the other into the river. What happened next was all a big circus, but we did recover both geese and this story will get retold for many years to come. Was pleased with the young dogs-Rossi is just over two and Judge not even a year old yet, but there is much more training to be done on my part!
Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
