    I posted this a while back but put it in the wrong forum and it got axed. So trying it again here.

    I'd like to see pics of members dogs in the process of hunting, or even laying on the couch. Bird dogs, Lion Dogs, any dogs!
    Here's my Large Munsterlander Heddie.

    Not my dog, but back in 2011 my brother in law talked me into driving to NM for a guided coyote hunt with this guy.

    http://www.predatoruniversity.com/predu/Welcome.html

    It was a unique experience and I had a good time. The guide uses decoy dogs to bring the coyotes in closer. This was his best dog when we were there, named Gunner. It's pretty interesting to watch, you can find youtube video of his dogs working. If the coyotes hang up out of range he sends one or 2 dogs out to challenge a pack of coyote. The coyote will begin to chase the dog trying to kill it. The dog, or dogs will then work back toward the hunters bring the coyote into range. Once you hit one the dogs will go in for it, finish it if necessary and bring it back.

    Here's a dropped-off stray that I trained to retrieve.

    Unfortunately, my quail hunting heyday was pre digital age. I took plenty of pictures of my adventures. My old buddy and I were seriously disappointed if we didnt kill 100 birds each, over points every quail season. I still have a Brittany, but she is a princess. She cannot compare to my best dog.
    He was truly phenomenal. He loved to hunt. He was a wild bird machine, that apparently hated quail. The year he was a pup. He thought his purpose in life was to make quail fly. He was lucky my hunting buddy didnt murder him.
    I married my high school sweetheart and she is still the most beautiful woman I know. Apparently Ol Jake thought so too because he would jump up and drag her clothes off of the clothesline. He had an uncontrollable urge to hump her clothes. She worked at the bank in town and was required to dress nice. Jake had a 'thing' for her dress pants and skirts. They were often found wadded up in the dog house, where he was doing 'who knows what' to them.
    If there was something dead, he would find it, roll in it, and eat it.
    If there was poop, he would find it and roll in it, and eat it.
    He chewed up a brand new denim work shirt of mine that ups had left on the porch.
    He never spent a night in the kennel. He roamed loose his entire life. When he was a pup(3 years) he tore holes in my boys tshirts and shorts until their clothes had to be thrown away.
    My wife bought a chocolate lab in order to raise some registered pups to sell. As soon as the lab came into heat, we locked ol jake in the shop. ....of course he jumped up on a workbenches, broke the window, tore through the screen.....and we had a litter of ½lab, ½brittany pups.....13 of em.
    He didnt like tame birds. He wouldn't really point them. He would just sort of stop, and look at me. Fortunately he was broke to back on command. I would shout 'back', and he would lock up. We won shoot to retrieve trials and fun trials all over three counties. He was a covey dog, a singles dog and a dead bird dog. He would even retrieve doves.
    Everyone is entitled to one good dog. He was mine.
    When he got old, he liked to lay in the shade under my work truck. One warm fourth of July, he didnt hear my truck start and I backed over him. I had to run to the back door where I keep my single six to put him down. After all these years, I still get choked up thinking about that day. His magnificent life overshadows his unfortunate death.
    Here is a picture of a picture of Jake.
    15851883429482991294315797037653.jpg
    If he looks rotten, it's because he was.

    He doesnt look like your average hunter, but I have seen him pull a rat out of a Bush, a bird out of the air, and he has killed every lizard around my house. 20181021_161258.jpg

    Labs, need I say more. Bottom picture is Diesel coming back from the Vet after getting a couple parts removed. Happy dog, always with the same happy expression. Poker faced dog, never know what he is thinking. 120 Pounds of dog.

    4FDE99D3-B95D-4E8A-94A9-03A1524F588D.jpeg Arty, my female black mouth cur. She’s still a hunting dog if the hunt begins after the shot, right? This was her first blood track after training on blood trails I made. She nailed it.
    I keep her trained but haven’t had to track a second deer yet. I’m working on the walker as soon as it quits raining.
    I got the pics backwards. Walker’s up top, bmc is down below.

    In case you’re wondering, the white thing under arty’s neck is a goat bell. I highly recommend them in a blood tracking dog. She’s on leash so it’s not necessary but psychologically it’s priceless. When I put it on her she goes from spoiled pet to all business instantly. You probably weren’t wondering though because it’s hard to see.

    The kangaroo looking dog was Vladimir. He was my sight hunter. Anything that I sent him after was caught and grudgingly retrieved.
    He would climb trees trying to catch squirrels.
    I made the mistake of letting him see me chase the neighbor goats out of my hay field. The next time the goats got out, he killed every one.
    He was my constant companion if I wasn't at work.
    If you ever find a fiest/pitbull mix, get it. Their prey drive and the will to please their master is insane.

    I dont have my own pup yet, my wife insists on our children being a bit older. I do have the pleasure of hunting with my pops dog, an english springer spaniel or my father in laws dog, an english pointer. Plenty of memories in the fields and woods with these two.

    A hunting buddy of mine, when we were in High School in the '60's, told me about an uncle of his that purchased a hunting dog from one of the sporting magazines. Said the uncle would be out hunting and a rabbit would come by him followed shortly by the dog which never made a sound. Seems the dog was a silent trailer. At the time it was a really funny!

    That is a great happy and sad story. My brother backed over one of his dogs but it managed to survive, he was still heartbroken. I die just a little when one of my dogs goes, but always get another.

    I had several Brits in the '80s & '90s but 2 were outstanding. They both got out the same night while I was away and someone purposely veered off the road and killed them both. The tire tracks showed it. Quail were almost gone by then so I never got another Brit. Great dogs IMO.

    Is her name avatar, or is she the dog FROM your avatar, or as I’ll choose to believe until you tell me otherwise, both? Because if her name was avatar and she also was your avatar then that makes me smile, which means this shelter in place sentence just got a little brighter.

    She's Storm. Best Pheasant Dog I ever owned. We have never lost a bird that was hit because she will not give up. To watch her work is poetry. Nose is up to catch scent's and then she goes low and slow. She stops to look and see where we are with her tail twitching to let us know she's going to flush. If my Son or I actually hit it we just have to wait. She'll find it. She found, flushed and retrieved six Rooster's for us in under two hours last hunt. I trained her to perfection. That is a complete lie. I don't know jack about training Hunting dog's. She just KNOWS! IMG_0299.JPG . IMG_3504.JPG

    1984 (jpg of a print) Buckskin’s first day in the field. “Buck”
    Male golden retriever english bloodlines out of my female and very deliberate breeding. I wish I hadn’t given up that bloodline (nasty divorce and life got in the way). Best bird dog I ever had. He made 88 retrieves that year as a 16 month old and almost all were wild pheasants. He quickly figured out we only shot roosters and he would roust the hens like they were only a distraction then put his nose right back in the hunt. When he was on a rooster he would huff so hard his cheeks would pop, pop, pop and you could hear him even if you couldn’t see him.
    Until some hunted with me they wouldn’t believe it until they saw him work. I would call it before the flush hen or rooster. He lived to 13 and made his last flush and retrieve when he was blind and nearly deaf. I later buried him in that spot. Tears freezing in my beard while I used a tractor loader to bust through the frost on a cold February night with a howling wind up on that hill. Now known as “dog hill” because there are 3 fine bird dogs planted there.
    My dad is partially in the pic, he passed away in 96. He must have shot the rabbit. He liked rabbit and I would never shoot a bunny in front of a young dog. Wish I still had that Cherokee chief too!
