    Replacement Bolt For Webley .410 Shotgun

    Yes, I know, he is kind of attached to it though so I thought i would ask around.
  6. A mate of mine has an old Webley .410 bolt action shotgun. Unfortunately he lent it to an idiot who lost the bolt. I know it's a long shot but I was just wondering anyone here has a spare bolt or knows where I might get one? Cheers.

    Any Deerhound Based X Pup Suggestions.....

    Generally I agree with you. Show breeding has ruined many breeds and created monsters along the way. If you are going to have breed standards for working breeds then those standards need to reflect an ideal working conformation and be adhered to. A lot of deerhounds now are bigger than they were historically and have a smaller colour range - but you can blame that on the writings of Sir Walter Scott who made grey the fashionable colour for these hounds. Fortunately a significant proportion of deerhound owners have always worked and continue to work their hounds and thanks to Mr Cassells and others the deerhound club organised coursing meets for members until coursing was banned and back in the 1950's before the law changed in Scotland, both deer and hares would be coursed at club meets.

    Well, I must have been hallucinating earlier this afternoon then when my deerhound bitch, (bred from a long line of workers or did I hallucinate that as well) was out with the terriers, and appeared to be appeared to be working (and working well) the game they turned out of cover. In my experience something north of 50% of UK deerhounds work live game which is probably a higher percentage of workers that you will find among collies these days most of which don't do anything more than chase balls around the park. Im more than pleased you own a Deerhoundy that see,s graft,few pures are working bred they are KC bred and conform to show and non working standards.The mongrel bred Deerhoundy,s are a better representation of the original than anything KC bred.The lads that own hybrid Deerhounds and graft them may be the only chance this breed will ever have of being salvaged from the KC scrapheap of ruined working breeds.I certainly agree that an awful lot of Collies are bred for the pet trade,yet its easy enough to source a working one,thats where the percentages swing massively in the Collies favour. Virtually all deerhounds are KC registered but that makes no difference to whether they are worked or not or how well they work. Pre-ban, a lot of the most successful show dogs also ran and did very well on the coursing field in regular organised coursing deerhound and deerhound / saluki meets and informally day to day on a range of quarry. These days in the UK we can't legally organise coursing meetings but many dogs who are shown continue to work live quarry. My own bitch has successful showdogs in her pedigree but the line she is from has also always extensively worked suitable live quarry. It is just a nonsense to think that show dogs and working dogs are something completely separate.

    What does make a worker in your eyes? How often does a dog have to work to be considered a worker? I live in a place with a lot of game all around. Now, year in year out, barring illness and business trips away, I have worked my dogs just about every day of the year for more than 40 years now. I do a lot of daytime work with terriers, lurchers and hounds and some lamping. I used to do a lot more lamping but not so much now, except as we roll into winter most of the time I am taking the dogs out in the evening in the dark, so I take the lamp with me and run whatever I come across and I come across a lot of stuff! I am very fortunate to live somewhere where a toddle up the road for a few hundred yards gets me among the game and I'm also lucky in having sufficient types and numbers of game to always have something suitable in season to work, so, does working it every day make my deerhound bitch a worker or not? A dog that can do its job consistently A dog that missed every head of game it ever chased would be perfectly consistent and hence a worker in your eyes

In my experience something north of 50% of UK deerhounds work live game which is probably a higher percentage of workers that you will find among collies these days most of which don't do anything more than chase balls around the park. I'm a fan of deerhounds but "north of 50%" work live game????? c'mon, surely that's not true. IMHO most of the truly working deerhounds and deerhound lurchers in Europe are here in Ireland and even here 50% would be wildly optimistic. I've always been heartened by your input on the deerhound threads here but 50% has got to be an exaggeration these days. I'm sure that even in the 70's and 80's when I lived in the UK a lot less than 50% of deerhounds worked live game. In fact I'd be surprised if even 50% of the breeders back then worked any of their hounds to game, never mind 50% of them. It is really hard to put figures on things like this, and as someone with an interest in working dogs I guess that I tend mostly to come into contact with people who work their dogs. I have never shown a dog and don't have anything to do with the show fraternity but, as I have got further into the deerhound community and people have opened up to me I have found more and more workers. There aren't many purebreds about but, a surprising percentage do work, sometimes against their owners best wishes given the proliferation of suitable large game around the UK. I guess that if you hang around dog shows you may get one view of deerhounds and if like me, you tend to run across them on farms, livery yards and hunt kennels you will get a different view
