Hunting Dog?

4 posts in this topic

I have been looking for a ticked German Shorthair pup. Are you all out? I do alot of hunting & would like to have a good pointer. My brother also has a pointer male that is great in the fields. His is almost a gray brown ticked color. This is what I like also. I am from the Fargo, ND area. Please let me know or point me in a direction of someone whom would have any pups. Any key things I should be looking for when purchasing a hunting dog? This is my first one.

Thank you,

What are you going to hunt? You mentioned a "pointer" do you mean English Pointer, or do you mean a pointing breed?

Check out thread at the top titled "Dog training material and information." There are some excellent resources for pointer training and breed research.

Hey Bob; spend this season and the winter studying and learning about dogs, dogs and more dogs. Read all you can and talk to dog owners, breeders, trainers.

THEN go shopping for a puppy. You will be better informed and more confident in your ability to choose. Both you AND your new dog are winners that way.

Take your time. Do it right. Enjoy the many delights of owning a well bred, well trained companion. It is one of the true joys of life. wink.gif

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
