Dogs pulling of stuff they know they can’t catch. Good or bad?

When you see a mutt that chooses its runs kill far more for far longer than a dog that runs stupid,then you will understand grasshopper.

Iv got a mutt here that is 10 years old and has killed plenty and not once chose a run or not to run. 

I must have a higher standard than some people maybe?

He'll know a rabbit is sitting on its hole though surely? That's what he's on about isn't it

I never fail to be amazed at how blinkered people on here can be. Lurchers are lots of things to lots of people, what suits one man could easily be shite to another. 

There is a world of difference between the point and slip dog with the heart of a lion who will pitch into whatever he's slipped on and the clever mooching dog who can turn a paw to anything and uses hunting craft to catch there quarry. 

They are both lurchers but work in an entirely different way, is one better than the other? Not in my opinion, but different dogs will suit different people.

As long as your dog suits you why worry about anyone else?

Im nearly 60,i had my first lurcher when i was 5,i did,nt have a clue what i was  doing at the time and the waterhens it killed became compost as they are not edible,try one.When i was 21 me and lurchers started to become a serious distraction to beer,birds with long legs and curvy tits and the wife,the first wife left me because of the mutts and the second wife caught me in my halcyon days with the runners,she stuck by me when she did,nt see me for hours at a time distracted by long gallops,big bags,lamps,ferrets and nets.I bred and hunted more mutts than some,less than betters,i lost count of the rabbits the mongrels slayed,the hares i missed and the company i kept.Thus when i state,with a little authenticity that ive witnessed a lurcher or two that where often a tad above average and at least one of them was my own.The finest lurcher ive seen in the field caught far more,for far longer than most,possibly because in the early 80,s the dales encouraged such,as did the A1 corridor and the coursing to be had at that time,that dog picked its runs every time it went out,a fox stupid enough to wander into its field of vision entered or died.Everything i strived for after that was to own,breed and run something close to what i perceived to be the holy grail of lurchers,believe me ive never owned or bred anything as good,im proud of the fact ive come close and owned mutts that killed far more but never as well.The best lurcher i owned would not run a rabbit sat on an hedge,an hare that ran through the hedge was pursued with relentless vigour,the lurcher knew its runs and quarry,a bunny sat on the horizon was ignored,an hare or other quarry within its visual range was chased down with all its endeavour.Thus i rate a mutt that picks its runs and knows a tad more than a few lurcher owners.

I'd go with most of that Morton except that moorhens are most definately edible! I've eaten loads but you do need to skin them before roasting (hot for a shortish time). One of the things that irritates me most about going out with other people is when they have dogs that make a dash at everything they see, usually clearing the ground before a more sensible dog has a chance to work it up properly.
