Few pictures of Jack and Apache

Postby Jacksbuddy » Sun Feb 01, 2009 4:41 am

Thought I would share a few photos of Jack and Apache doing what they love to do most, hunting for birds :lol: .

The first three are points, the fourth one I like because Jack appears to be looking back over his shoulder after the flush and saying "OK guys, don't miss this time".

Great pictures and it looks like so much fun. I'm not a hunter but there are times I wish I was .... or wish my dogs were trained to hunt. I'd just like to go out and watch them do their "thing."

Nice pictures, Tim. How's Apache doing in the field?

Next weekend, the guy who got our Montana (now Roxy) is entering her in a puppy stakes at a Chukar Challenge about 10 miles from us. Never even knew that place was there. If you want to check out their website, look Mason Dixon Game Outfitters. He has been consistently working her on birds since she was 3 months old. He says she has a rock solid point (of up to 2 minutes of solid point), and she has to get to the downed bird first and retrieve. I can't wait to see her work.

Great photos! They are so beautiful to watch in the field. Nothing like watching a dog do what they love to do. :D

It is great fun, so much so I plan my vacations around the bird seasons.
If you ever get the chance to walk along, GO.


Hey Brian, Apache is doing great, he has a nice scenting ability and a good point. He does really good at retrieving during yard work but part of the problem in the field is Jack won't allow him to retrieve.
I would like to do something more formal with him but looking at the costs of running him in NAVHDA functions for hunt tests and having to be PC with the judges and all,. sort of spoils it for me. I guess I will just have to be comfortable knowing I have another dog that will run with any other in an open stake on any gameland or grouse wood :wink: 8) :lol: .

I hope Roxy does well, it is nice to hear about the sucesses of Apaches other littermates 8) .

My husband took Maggie there a few times when she was a puppy. They offered training classes for pups (I guess they still do) and it was the first time she was ever actually exposed to birds. We only ever saw one other brit there-it was mostly GSP's and a few labs.

Apache's gotta be taught about seniority. :wink: Glad he's doing well. Competitions might be nice for bragging rights, but a good dog that can put food in the cooker is what it's really about. Looks like Apache is honoring Jack's point in that one picture. He might be on the larger size, but he is one good-looking pup. And such the sweet personality.

Apache definitely has a laid back personality, always happy and easy going.
He is honor Jacks point in the photo, I also have one where Jack is honoring his point 8) .
