evantraylor wrote:so my next question. i joined a bird lease. say i just take her out, let her find birds. no shooting. she's never really done any formal training on pointing or whoa. i worked her a little while she was young, with a wing on a fishing pole. how should i go about this. is this something that will come natural to her. when she sniffs the bird out, and flushes, and the bird flies, will she just chase it? ive taught her stay and she knows it well, is this something i could use?
