Re: PHEASANT AND RABBITS?

That web page was great training info. I have also since found that my brit does not even look twice at a rabbit. Has no clue what one is in the field. HE POINTS BIRDS LIKE A FOOL. I am going to use some of the tips in the web page and hopefully get him to hold point and retreive. I would like to ru...

Re: PHEASANT AND RABBITS?

No nerves of steel here! I WAS FREAKING OUT! Thought my dog was gone and the ink hasnt dried on the paperwork yet. lol But Im glad I'm not the only one who thinks that way.

Hunting trip was an experience today. Beasley covered a 10 acre field in 7 minutes and passed by 3 birds w/o even looking back. next Beasley ran in a line and didnt listen to a warning tone or shock and disappeared for 45 minutes. I followed his tracks hitting the whistle and shock every once in a w...

Re: PHEASANT AND RABBITS?

Thought I should post a couple pictures like i said I would. I got BEASLEY my fat little buddy home yesterday. He is quite a character and is trained to hunt well. Hoping to have a lot of fun with him real soon. Letting him adjust for now though. I cant add pictures or an avatar for some reason. I c...

Re: PHEASANT AND RABBITS?

thanks for the input. I agree completely with the comment about letting him get used to his new home first. He is gonna be my big baby first, hunting dog second

He will have plenty of time to adapt.
