Re: Shorthair wirehair

I've got a smooth coated GWP. Took it in as a rescue dog and found it to be an excellent bird dog. The coat's great, I've only picked up one single cocklebur hunting pheasants.

Re: Garmin Alpha?

I've learned to always lock the screen before the hunt, had many a weird screen prior to that. I'm using a holster I found on ebay, Gizmovest is the name. It comes with a lanyard also. And yes, screensaver is a must if you're hunting in brush, and I think we all are.

Re: Pig Pointers

Yeah, it was my lucky day. When it was all over and I had called the dogs back in I just rolled on the ground laughing. I mean, not just any lil ole pig came out, it had to be hogzilla. How absurd is that? I'm new here and liking this board a lot. Love sharing stories with folks who understand the b...

Pig Pointers

The last day of the quail season here in California I was in Tehama county chasing Valley Quail with my 2 dogs, Cash the Pointer and Rio the German Wirehaired Pointer. Got some nice dog work that day, several points and honors. One point and honor stand out. I found them in a gully, Cash on point wi...

Re: Garmin Alpha?

Okay, after several training trips and some bird hunting the holster is doing a bang up job. The screen jumping all over the place when it gets bumped is almost a thing of the past. The way the holster is set up the screen is recessed a bit. On and Off is done through the holster and you still have ...

Re: Garmin Alpha?

I've been using an Alpha here in the Sierra's and foothill canyons for 2 seasons. So far all of my 'glitches" have been caused by operator error. It takes a while to understand the unit but all in all it's been worth way more than 800 bucks to me. Never lost a dog for any length of time, just a seco...

I currently have 3 dogs, a 3yr old pointer, broke, a 1.5yr old GWP, rescued just a month ago and still in training, and a 14yr old Gordon Setter, retired except for a gimme bird now and then. I hunt...
