Re: How Awsome Are GOOD Hunting Preserves

Well then if you can not (or are too lazy) to scope out and find wild bird areas to hunt with your dog/dogs......then maybe (more like obviously) you should not own the dog/dogs. Your types do a disservice to those who really hunt wild birds. Gamefarms are for pretenders and posers..............and ...

What a bunch of sad sacks....you guys justify that you are "hunters" and yet you hunt "birds" that were released from a cage 20 minutes before you go out and blast them? How does that kind of thinking work? And you don't see how that gives hunting a "bad" name? You sound like the same types who carr...

Guess it depends on how you define a versatile dog. I would venture to guess there are a good number of versatile britts, setters and pointers out there, as well as GSP's and GWP' s that are not. I would bet like what Denmor alluded to, there are less GWP/Drahthaars that can't do the versatile dog ...

Hundreds or thousands of hours of hunting would be considered some form of practice, which versatileguy has shunned as well.
Now this quote has missed the "POINT" too......Hunting is not training for a test.
