Jonah was very special. He was only about 10 months old when we married so he grew up thinking he was a Shorthair.

Much luckier than my Brit. She grew up taking orders from a chihuahua!:Arghh:

Right where she ought to be I think.

We have a rule here. "If you don't like sharing the couch with the dogs get off of it, they paid for it".

Yep. The way I train them not to beg is just to always give them a few bites of whatever we are having when we are done but they don't even get a crumb from around the table while we're still seated.

Are you hunting cats with the beagles or are they just there for good company?

They seem to have developed a disliking towards domestic cats but I try not to encourage it... He has managed to catch a few rabbits though.

Just good company...

I understand that. Ours get along fine with my wife's house cats but in the field they think they are really fun chew toys!

In the US the biggest predator problem we have on game birds are feral cats so that's something we encourage rather than discourage.

We shoot feral cats on the spot, they totally destroy game bird populations.

Same here. Overall we've got a big problem in this country with predators in general. When I was a kid "hide hunting" for coons, bobcat, coyote etc was a passion and a way we could all make some good money while having a good time over the weekends. The anti's killed the fur industry and that killed the hide industry (along with regulations which drove all the tanneries offshore) and as such predators have exploded across the country. As they have our game bird populations have correspondingly dwindled steadily.

Too many predators who are too concentrated by continual buildup and urban sprawl along with the destruction of millions of acres of native habitat for hay production have all conspired to make life pretty tough on quail which are the game bird species with the widest distribution across the continent here.

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

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
