First of, Hello all.

 

Recently having started a new job miles away from where i originally lived, I had to get rid of the dog I had at the time, a Coursing bred Saluki Greyhound.

 

Now having settled into my new job, once again i have started yearning for a dog, missing the mooching and the wandering I used to do, a time to relax and let the world go by, but at the same time doing something I enjoyed.

A couple of weeks ago, to relieve my boredom i bought myself an Air Arms S410, to pop off the local Grey Squirrel population, as well as the Coneys and the Wood-pigeons.

Hopefully if everything goes according to plan, I will also be getting a baikal stealth .410, to do the same as the air rifle, but obviously with the added advantage of shooting moving quarry.

So over these past few weeks, I have been thinking of what dog to get, do I go for the usual choice of a coursing bred dog, or maybe something a little different, maybe a Bedlington x, who knows.

 

But having re-kindled that enjoyment I get from shooting, I thought to myself, do I really need a running dog? When I had one, a simple walk around the local footpaths turned into interrogation having 100's of questions thrown my way e.g. what you up to, I hope you aren't poaching, you do know if the farmer see's a dog like that he will shoot it .etc .etc.

 

So thinking to myself, could I get a dog that could be as much use to me as a Running dog, but without the added stigma surrounding them? Having pondered upon this question for a while, I thought of a black Labrador.

 

But my question to all you Gun-dog men out there is, could I train said dog to mark trees with squirrels up them? mark rabbit sets whilst out ferreting? push game into long-nets and hares into gate-nets? Retreive game that i have shot, be it with the S410, the .410, or the Catty, be it from land or water? Whilst at the same time having a cracking companion, a foot warmer, and a dog that will sit at my feet all night whilst at the pub?

 

Hope to hear some advice on the matter, I understand its not your usual requirements of a Gun-dog.

 

Cheers,

well gentlemen, thanks for the helpful advice, as usual!!!

No, no SGC as of yet, still waiting for them to get back to me, and as i have a clean criminal record, i reckon there should be no problem!!!

And don't worry lab, there is no money in partridge or pheasants as you have said a few times its pointless poaching them, even if you want a few for the pot, its not worth the risk of getting caught for pennies.......... Hares and ducks on the other hand :thumbs::tongue2:

 

As stated earlier, i am a one for the pot man, but it make's me feel like i have done well, if keepers up and down the country fear me, my role in life has been fulfilled :laugh::toast:

But in all honesty mate, i give up with the whole mooching/ fence hopping side of things, i have a bit of permission now, and its good to not have to worry all the time, so i guess the question was genuine, i do want a gun-dog to many arseholes in the lurcher world, especially them geordies breeding there circus crossbred mongrels :tongue2:

Would you reccomend a springer or a lab, lab?
