TOM HEAVY

Temptation

Recommended Posts


I work cockers , which are good to beat and shoot over but as bashers to lurchers are limited .

They rely too much on instruction, add a terrier / cocker x and they hunt and hold the line better imo.

Most cockers aren't as highly strung as most springers I've found.

My cock russel is a pleasure to work be it ratting bashing or beating.

lovely sort Treehands - hours of fun I'll bet

Tom, the ears on a cocker or cross would get hammered in the heavy cover I work and at 650 it would be a costly mistake,a decent terrier with either russell or Plummer in it would do the job for you,it would get down any runs in cover easily and able to bush steadily all year round,I get out everyday bushing and my terriers smash any cover without damage,nettles are not a problem either,Gaz has been lucky with his Plummer in that it has some decent breeding in its paperwork but most are not of this standard,if you need any info on what lines to buy then pm me but a cross would do you and a third of the price,WM

 

i wouldn't fancy bushing with a terrier on basis it could easily drop in and you're stuck there then.

Very nice pair Mud, how old ?

Mine tends to go on "point" before flushing which is handy for the runners.
