    5 month old Cocker chasing low flying birds

    As above......mine would chase at that age but now at eleven months she has learned that it’s a waste of time and not acceptable behaviour....now hares that’s a different story lol

    When you are training it train it to hunt close to you as it’s easy to get it to hunt at a distance when it’s trained but not the other way around

    They know the score after a few trips out. My last one hunted close when I;the beating line but hunted alongside the lurchers when out mooching

    I have always had cockers.....they work with the lurches and also beat on the shoot.....they will never win a field trial but do ok at both

    I might be interested ,this bitch of mine is iron hard....absolutely no reverse gear generation after generation ,tested to the hilt.....dating back to the run of the century The ancestors of this dog fought bloody battles on the streets battling bulls and bears what I need now is an out cross because that dogs a lovely colour and the pups would sell well on pets r us

    I have used twin bands before found that single was better for me with a light pouch, it was more accurate to be honest. Single with a light pouch is fast enough for hunting i, m no expert but I think double would be better for bigger ammo. 12 mm lead etc
