    DefaultAre there any bird hunters at Just Labs?

    The hunting thread is a pretty quiet place on this website for dogs with such historical hunting traditions.

    Who are the bird hunters at Just Labs?

    Please introduce yourselves.
    Thanks!

    I thought this was the hunting thread?

    Not me but there are a couple in my family who shoot game birds with labs they've bred. The last two labs my folks had came from working dogs but my Dad is a keen ornithologist so we grew up with binoculars rather than shotguns!

    Hey Coalman:

    Brand new to the forum.

    I am most certainly a bird dogger.

    My two hunt with me as much as I can get out there.

    Upland and waterfowl.

    I've never hunted with mine, nor have I ever hunted, period. That said, I would love to do so. I've not looked into details and specifics of training, but I would most likely use him as a flushing dog to hunt upland game.

    To prepare for this training, he's currently well-trained in recall and heel commands. We spend a lot of time off-leash in the woods, so it won't be huge transition. Also, I've taken him into the field with my 12-gauge to see his reaction (he was a rescue when I got him at 15 months) to gunfire. To my surprise, not only did he not flinch or get scared of gunfire, he immediately ran into the brush in the direction of the shot and was looking for the bird! I was rather impressed.

    Most definitely a bird hunter here! I live in NW Iowa, so my main passion is pheasant hunting. During the season, Diesel and I are out almost every weekend chasing ringnecks. I'm hoping to get some more training done this year to get him ready for waterfowl hunting, which is something I just got into over the last couple years. I love all kinds of hunting, but if I had to pick just one, it would be pheasant. It's such a pleasure see him running through the cover, tail and nose going like mad, doing what he was born to do. Any hunting is good, but hunting with my boy is the best. Every year I go to northern Wisconsin for fishing with a friend in the spring, and I'm hoping to go up again in the fall. Then I not only get to fish, but I'll get to take him into the woods grouse hunting.

    Plenty used to be here. But in general, this forum is dead because the new owners killed the community. You could always go visit the retriever training forum: RetrieverTraining.Net - the RTF

    I am!! I've hunted both upland birds and waterfowl with labs my entire life!! Our pup is now 3 months old and hope to be hunting over him by the end of 2014.

    I fear that the natural instincts of our breed will be diluted because our dogs make such great pets and confirmation champions. I love the fact that our puppy Cinder and my ten year old son are going to learn to hunt together.

    Here's a shot of my AKC Champion, "Max". He retrieves quail, doves and waterfowl. Who sez an "English" style lab can't hunt??Max 001.jpg
