Hunting Dogs! Lets see yours!

Whose got em? Lets see them! Mine is a Weimaraner his name is Smokey! WE got him when he was 7 wks old he is now almost 11 months old. I took him hunting last fall when he was only 5 and 6 months old and for a dumb pup he did great. He handled doves first then grouse then lastly pheasants. He wasnt great but Im looking forwards to round two this next fall. Plus he is a great family and watch dog. He lives in the house with us and is just like part of the family (another kid)!!

Moderators if this is in the wrong spot go ahead and move it but please pm me and let me know where it went!

I wish I could post one. I had to put my Black Lab down in 2000 after 11 years of a rough but good life - arthritis had crippled him badly.
like to have killed me.

Here are a few pics of my male pointing lab Rufus. He is well bred and has a beautiful tripod point. ;)

I don't have any action shots of my girl Belle. She is a equally well bred pointing lab as well. She will be bred this time next year and that will be the official start of Magnum Point Kennels ;)
Here is a pic of her as a pup. SHe is a sweetheart but a thief that can and will rob you blind :D

Vizslas. The best of dogs, the worst of dogs.:p

Recent: Why aren't we hunting?!?

Early training, learning not to break:

At 8 weeks. Trouble from Day 1.

Maybe a week later, trying to get cheese off the kitchen counter.

Spud and Ginger in their prime. They are both 12 now. Spud is a Lab-Weimaraner, and Ginger is a Springer-Foxhound. Spud was an instinctive pointer, loves guns, and wouldn't break unless you told him too. I had to take him hunting because he was such a natural not because I was a hunter. Ginger didn't like the guns much but she can sure flush out the grouse.

Spud will only be with me for a little while longer. He isn't eating much these days and cancer is taking its toll on him. :(

I got tired of tracking deer. My dog fetches them for me after I shoot them with my 1740.


In all honesty, when I dove hunt I use one of our family's German Shorthaired Pointers. Amazing dogs. We raise them, in case anyone is interested...:evil:

April 21, 2009, 12:57 PM
Some fine looking dogs fellas ;)

April 21, 2009, 01:16 PM

Dog, yes.. HUNTING dog.. that's yet to be determined lol. But I hope she works out.

Thats a good looking pup ;) If I had a bigger place I would have a couple of GSP's as well .

April 21, 2009, 06:10 PM

Thanks for the pics guys, all great looking dogs!

Marlin 45 carbine, sorry about your loss I know the feeling lost our mutt of 13 yeears last July, was hard on the whole family! Smokey was just what the doctor ordered!!

April 21, 2009, 08:14 PM
Here is my old Springer named Lady. Got her as an 8-week old pup and she was at my side for 12 years until I had to put her down...cancer.
Broke my heart.

Here they are Trigger, Sapper and KIKI. Sapper is my main hunting dog (The all black dog).

April 23, 2009, 11:46 AM
He's a little older and bigger now and has been hunting this past fall. Good dog. He's actually my son-in-laws, but stayed here for a long time until they got a house where they could keep him. I trained him and I'm the only one that's hunted with him so far. His name is Ruger.

Since this is where my screen name comes from I guess I'll chime in:
This is one of my 4 Brittany's "Gunner Jo." My wife and I raised him from a puppy bottle feeding and all, he was the only pup to survive from a litter of 9 where the mother died at birth. He's kinda special to me as his mother was also, and he is a birdhunting fool, though at times I think more fool than birdhunter. This picture was his "5 minutes of glory" as we walked a tailwater pit in SW Kansas and got these three roosters (out of 20 or more) with 3 shots from my 20 gauge Beretta 391. He had a bad foot that day so I was only letting him run the short 5 minute spots and this one was the mother load!

This one is Mr. Rocket, I got him the day we started attacking Afgahnistan in October of 2001. This dog and I have put the miles on the ground in the last 8 years and there is no other dog I have ever gone afield with and not had to make a noise and that dog be right there all the time. The last two years this dog just flat out hasn't made a mistake, and to date I have never lost a bird with him in the field except for doves in extreme dry and dusty conditions. He is one awesome dog and has put on a show and earned his keep when I have guided hunts with him.

Rocket and Gunner:

Missy who died last year:

And a typical picture of my truck from Mid October to Mid February:

My other two Brittany's right now are still pups and are not quite a year old and I do not have any good field pictures of them yet. But this is Shooter and he is going to be a pretty good dog I think:

And this is Isabella, who is quite the queen, or royal **** as I often say:

Birdhunter, nice! Wish we had pheasant down here. Someday, I'll get to hunt them buggers. :D I have never had a place to use a pointer, but then, the quail population ain't doing too good on my place now. When I first bought it, there were birds out there. I'm not sure if the fire ants got 'em or what? Lots of rattlers out there, too, and bobcats. A ground dwelling bird ain't got much of a chance.

But, them's some good lookin' Brittanies you have there.

You folks have some awesome companions there. Sure have enjoyed viewing them, and thinking back on our past Goldens. They were great friends who were gone way to fast.

We got the present one as a stray picked up my one of the officers that works with my wife. He was pitiful looking as a few week old pup, didn't hardly have enough rear to keep his chin off the ground. Didn't take long to fill out though.

He isn't much for gun fire and generally none is needed, you just tell him to get it, and then all he wants to know from then on, is where you want it. His other motto is don't screw with tha cook,

I don't hunt him per say, but he does go to the woods with us every chance we can get away. He will trail anything as long as I will let him, and follow, but will break off on command with no issues. No formal training has been done other than the simple obediance commands, and he has been a teddy bear with all fo the family and grandkids. His favorit past time is getting anything which resembles a rat, and at around 30mph which is as fast as I can keep up with him in the pasture, most squirrels on the ground are SOL if he sets his sights on them.

Living and working on my own 1800 acre property, pest control is a job, and I enjoy having the dogs to hunt foxes or rabbits on an opportunity basis. The pic below is of us waiting for a fox to bolt. It has been worked, or harassed underground by the terriers, and most foxes become so insecure at being cornered by a dog that they'll take advantage of a quiet spell to seek safer refuge.

Tessa, the Staghound is 25" at the shoulder. 3yo and with a lovely temperament.
Mystey, the Whippet is a 4yo. Too light for the work, as she has trouble pulling up a fox that is determined to get to cover, but she's desperately keen and makes a good mate for the Stag.
The shorter of the two JRTs is Khannie. Risning 11yo, and a handy underground worker. Same goes for her 7yo daughter, Shortie. Slightly more leggy than her mother, and slimmer in the chest. A good den-dog, but not so hard that I have to dig her out.

This is what one hopes happens next.
Note the size of the dust-plumes being raised by my two speed-merchants. There is some power going to the ground, there.

At other times, we find them in trees.

... and getting them out can be rather exciting.

.... for everyone except the prey.

Great stress-relief for a farmer coping with his third year of drought.

The black-and-tan dogs are my Kelpie sheepdogs. Enthusiastic participants in any foxing, but not owned for their capabilities in that department.

Regards...... Peter

Mine are great groundhog hunters, they hunt as a pack. The larger dog (the younger dog) is a husky/lab/shepard mix, he is very fast and 82 lbs of muscle. The smaller dog (older dog) the pure husky is the killer, so strong, fast in a sprint, efficient and all business when it comes to the kill.
Both have a strong instinct to go after coyotes, the younger dog is the only one who has had a chance in this state to do so. Fortunately for the coyote the deep grass and darkness allowed him to escape.
If deer hunting with dogs were legal my younger dog would be perfect, he would chase, knock the deer off its feet over and over until it was exhausted or dead.
Notice the tooth marks on the groundhog, one quick bite, no shaking needed, it was dead.

This is my first lab. In this photo he is 8 months old

May 14, 2009, 01:11 AM
My mixbreed just added a large rabbit to his kill list. I just returned home after getting the dogs hours of good hard exercise and they looked beat.
I opened the garge door into the backyard and saw a rabbit 120 feet away, told them "get the bunny rabbit", in 2 seconds (NO exageration) flat the rabbit was captured, and almost ripped clean in half.
The rabbit only had to run 10ft and slide through the fence to escape.
Of course then I had to take the rabbit from the purebred husky who took it from the mixbreed.

Here is Havanna (Piet Zyn Drift Havanna), a South African Boerbull. One of our only breads. They were bred to protect the first settlers against wild animals. There are documented cases of boerbulls killing hyena and leopard. Vanna weighs about45kg and is very fit and energetic. I have two boerbulls, a veimaraner(spelling) and two dachunds(spelling). Vannas dad is rated at 96%, no. 3 in the world. She is too agresive (towards non whites not taught by me or my wife) so i cant get her graded.

poor fox.. hahaNoob Shooter.

We consider your sympathy <chuckle> somewhat misdirected.

I hope that the "claret" does not contravene forum policy.

In truth, my JRTs are not particularly "hard" and tend to bay rather than attempting to kill. However accidents do happen, sometimes due to a particularly agressive fox, and sometimes due to one puhsing the other into the fox in her enthusiasm.

Both have healed well. A couple of "9-minute eggs".

If I may indulged...

Action pics are the hardest to get with fast-moving animals. I have too many photos of small , blurry things in that far distance.

These are about as good as mine get. Love those running-dogs!

May 19, 2009, 01:50 PM
Man those are cool action pics. How the hell did you keep up with them?

My one boerbull is a bit of a mess at the moment. Got bit by a big puff adder. He has a big hole in his neck but its healing up slowly. My dogs are great at killing snakes, except for thuis once.

May 20, 2009, 07:25 AM

Number one answer is "always carry a camera".

No. 2 is telephoto and lots of pics, hoping for a good one. Sometimes the prey circles.

Am handicapped by the pocket digital which has relatively slow processing speed and no viewfinder. When I can justify the expenditure, I'll be shopping for a Digi-SLR with a higher frame rate and a better telephoto. Viewfinder is a must, too. You can't focus on a screen and the subject seperately.

Burst mode helps, but it cuts down on the resolution.

Snakes are not a joke. I've seen too many Eastern Browns in disused fox-earths, so i don't do much denning in summer. The Terriers are too ready to take them on, and the result is usually a dead heat. Literally.

Nice action photos Cooch. My husky and husky mix are possibly the best rabbit hunters Ive ever seen. Just in the past week they have captured (and torn in half) 2 very large adult rabbits. One rabbit escaped them by running behind my legs then under a fence gate. Both rabbits were 120ft or more away, both chases started and ended in 2-3 seconds with a rabbit torn in half.
I wouldnt mind it because there are so many right now, but they got sick from swallowing too much fur on one of those, the mess was not fun to clean up. And both of mine are 100% raw fed.
