I’ve heard podcasts speak of Pudelpointers showing off during hunt tests with their water work. While I plan to mainly hunt chukar I do want to be able to use mine to hunt waterfowl as well. While out getting him used to swimming at the lake last Friday he swam out a half mile chasing geese. I thought I had lost him, no way he would make it back to shore. Recall wasn’t working so I swam out to him while loosing my mind. I had lost my best friend. That a hole turned and came back toward me finally and we swam back to shore. Turns out he’s a strong swimmer and will do fine swimming out to retrieve birds. Now to work on the recall in water.

I haven’t met anyone on MM who tells me they are more connected to their canine companions more than @JPblind & @ SS.. that I believe.
That connection in the hills with a good dog…
Don’t really need much more than that in life.

We need to keep this thread going, especially for us guys who connect more with animals than the messed up humans.
This is Buster’s father, Bainer. Best horn dog I’ve owned.
He climbed the kennel and came back 12 days later with some hardware.
I thought he was gone..

WOW!! Thats crazy and lucky he made it back with that trap on his toes. Was his digits okay after it came off? Got a good dog there glad he's back.

I love my dogs more than I love my wife or kids


@SS you can have this on for free. Sick of him shedding all the time. Trained in mule deer, squirrel and rabbit hunting. He knows how to spot deer at a long distance and let ya know where they are. Then walks behind you while stalking them

Are you no longer married? Have your wife clean the hair….

Well when winter ends then starts back up he had 2 major times he shed his coat. He wasn't worth a crap scouting for sheep. Wore his paw pads off on the first scouting trip last year. Apprantley that country was to much for him

I think I am married still. Apparently 5 golf games a week I don't see her much. Next week heading to Colorado to play mariania butte.

Sounds like you need an additional wife. Pro tip: let her pick the 2nd wife

Butts I couldn’t agree more!
In January I had to put down Waylon, he was one of those dogs that did everything I asked of him and more…

For Father’s Day my daughter gave me a hand painted picture of him that her college friend and teammate painted.,,. It will be one of the best gifts I’ll ever get!

Still in recovery mode from the vid but forced myself to get the wolf pack out. Nugget had a great time eating all the blueberries:



He spent rest the hike hitting every berry patch. We were not the only ones enjoying the berries:

I hate people so I avoid Hatcher’s like the plague. You wouldn’t believe how bad it is out there these days.

The population in alaska was out of control by the time we left in 2015. With high pop density comes more crime. Atv and snowmachine trailers stolen from the front yards with the people home. Remember catching reds in wasilla creek behind the house until people started "hiking" through the backyard after housing was built around us then it seemed the fishing dried up. It came to the point when alaska stopped being fun. Best time of year was winter when it seemed no one would be out and I could have the whole lake to myself icefishing.

I’d like to know what every one recommends on shed breeds as well?? , My current 2 aren't worth a damn turning up horns. I’m sure it has nothing to do with training or the current owner. Might have to hit the reset button on a lab puppy.

Second pheasant hunt for this guy, headed to North Dakota in two weeks… His brain is going to get scrambled up there with amount of birds he’ll see…
I can’t wait….

Tikka he looks like a very focused pup! Are you hunting “free range” rooster’s in ND?
I’ve got invited to a couple field trial comps.
Last weekend a buddy wanted me to enter a doubles tournament.
5 planted birds
5 acres.
10 shells a team.
10 points for all unshot shells
Pivot on one foot after the shot for retrieving? Fastest time wins..
You done this? JW

He won the the tournament with another fellow..

I just love wild birds, what’s your thoughts?
