Do you take a dog out
Posted 05 August 2009 - 06:51 am
I appreciate that it is a matter of training and the old "crap in crap out" scenario but would be keen to know who does who doesn't..... and what breeds. I know we are all perfect shots but would a lurcher be a useful tool for an injured runner or is this viewed as prolonging the kill? (at least you'd get the rabbit back and be able to despatch accordingly)
- Keep in touch Buster, I'll make the trip over this time.

used to take my old lab x collie with me when i went squirrel shooting, the squirrels wouldnt make off across the ground with him there plus nine times out of ten they were more concerned about keeping the dog in sight than they were about me and were much easier to shoot!

My beddy/whippet had his first two rabbits out with the air rifle.
all my lurchers are fine with gun shot noises, my bitch had her first rabbit when out with a friend using an air rifle so she connects the two together - to be honest i'm not sure if its good or bad as if your not watching her close while and theres a shot on nearby she'll make a beeline!! cringe! . . . have discovered its not liked much lol
