    ok, it'll be awhile before he can work the field with me, but my hunting dog died awhile back (a great golden retriever, she died at 15 RIP Annie)

    he's (Turk) got a long way to go but he's a super puppy so far, can't wait to get him trained and ready to go get some birds :) and yes the floor is dirty, it's a puppy he isn't exactly helping keep the family room clean lol

    I know that WMD is more of a competitive shooting forum not a hunting forum but fuck it, who doesn't love a puppy either way lol

    (yellow lab obviously, dad was about 85 pounds with a super squared off head, mom was a smaller 65 pound lab with a reddish tint to her)

    Good looking pup.
    Hunting crew is a reasonable offshoot of WMD crew, just as gardening crew is an offshoot of cooking crew.

    My bird dog, Gringo, is starting to show his age. He's about to turn 8. He's more than a bird dog though, he'll retrieve anything you send him after.
    Sunday we were cleaning up our place in east texas. A small piece of an old pier has been floating around the pond for about 4 years. I sent him in after it and he drug it all the way onto the bank. I drug it the rest of the way to the burn pile, must have weighed about 100 lbs.

    my golden died at 15, the last hunting trip she went on (she scared up pheasant and retrieved duck) she was working the field scaring up birds but she sure was slow and i had to stick to easy terrain, it is sad to see your doggah get old :(

    this little fella has a long way to go, he fetches but he's lazy as hell, i've got to get this guy more active

    Puppies sleep a lot, it's nothing out of the ordinary.

    My B-I-L's lab is almost a year old and weighs in at 100 lbs. Super smart dog, and now he's starting to realize how big he is.

    they put trackers on them up here, and every once in a while when we're deer/grouse hunting, you'll come across a really emaciated one. guys just leave them out there if they get out of tracking distance. :hs:

    My beast of burden, she probably would have made for a good hunting dog. But I dont hunt so...

    This is about 8 hrs into waiting 2 squirrels out of a tree. She's a black mouth cur.

    god damn i'm happy you guys are dog folks. i figured i'd be told wrong forum lol.

    love seeing the pics of other dogs, it's awesome when they tree a squirel, my golden did that all the time too.

    ok, i have to whore 1 more pic of my new little guy, i promise i won't keep posting pics every few hours lol. here's Turk

    I love all dogs (except pit bulls, sorry pit bull owners)
    but i am partial to the more common hunting dog breeds, goldens, labs, german shorthairs, etc.

    but all dogs are pretty damn awesome if raised correctly and trained, it sure helps when they can help with a hobby like hunting though. it's nice to have a dog go get the damn duck when it drops in the water after you hit it. plus it lets ya be lazy when pheasant hunting once you have em trained to do the work for you (god i hope i can get this little guy like my last dog, i know it'll take time but my fingers are crossed)
