Alright - who's out there? Any hunt test or field trial guys?
We have a couple of retrievers - one that we would like to get hunt test titled, he already has his Junior hunt title, we just haven't been able to get it finished up -- too much working and not enough time to train like we would like to.
not a hunt trial guy but I'm all about duck dogs.
At least there are a couple of guys out there My boy's getting a little old to do any real work. Arthritis gets the best of him. I titled him a Master Hunter in NAHRA a few years ago. He lives for a retrieve!! But it's just a little too tough anymore. I really need to get pup started.
I'm not into trials...but I have trained MANY Labs to hunt ducks and geese. Never did get into the field trials....I was always too busy hunting!
Retriever guy here, I own and hunt 2 Pointing Labs. No field trials. Just days in the feilds on wild Iowa birds. Gottafish, I wished you lived closer, I have a unspoken for pup in this last litter which I thought about starting and selling him that way. They are only 4 weeks old so I'm sure he will get a home before 7 weeks. iowacatter
Quit the test because it became to political, sometimes its not about the dog, its about who you are. I still have a couple labs, one that I can't keep in even with electric fencing but man what a duck dog.
I have a litter from my male and fenmale due Friday. They will most likely be all black but there is a possibility of some choco's
We're up to 4. 2 black males, 1 black feamle and a yellow male.
puppies and mama dog.
I got 1 male and 2 females that are unclaimed.
This is Bo, unless you listen to the wife, then he's Beau. I told her she can call him whatever she wants but his name is Bo.
He'll be 2 in July and will retrieve tennis balls, squeaker toys, table legs, snowballs and frisbees. He's one of those lazy dogs that doesn't work for a living.
Here is a picture of my 2 criiters.
Buster the Black lab and Dixie(some type of a mix, she is the sight hound constanly looks for squirrels and other critters.
I have a current 7wk old chocolate female, plan on just giving her the usual duckdawg routine although she make pick up on coon even who knows, she'll be around the hounds.
Hey, those labs are great dogs. Dang near as good as a Setter!
Max & I chase pheasants, mostly in southern Iowa. I was raised in Central Illinois, but fall plowing killed off almost all the birds there.
I got a yellow lab "Brier". He is starting to slow down and get a little gray on the face ........ but so am I. He is a great duck and goose dog. We also try to do at least a little upland hunting each year too.
I've got 4 Labs - 1 blk. male, 2 blk. females & choc. female. Used to do ALOT of hunt tests but it has gotten too expensive running 4 dogs a weekend. Gas, motels, entry fees, etc... have all gone up. I am a hardcore waterfowler and know how to train to the level I need. I have the auto launchers, wingers, etc... and train primarily on my own. Don't really need the hunt tests anymore - it was fun however. But there are just too many hobbies and some had to go!
