I hunted with one that was crossed with an english pointer (not on purpose of course). This was the best darn non-purebred pointing hunting dog I've ever seen and he was supposedly a great farm dog too.

We have a Blue heeler that just turned three yesterday. He is a very smart dog. One thing I learned about them is that if you want to teach them anything it has to be within the first year. Not sure why. We tried to teach our dog fetch and he didn't really get it, but we never tried really hard either. But when it comes to no begging, jumping, licking, sit stay, etc. it's like it just clicked with him. Tell him something once and he gets it. Another thing is that he is very protective! Nobody will be able to get in a vehicle or house without him letting you know hes there. He won't bite but when the hair on the back of his neck stands up he does look a little mean.

Had a buddy that had one that he could tell to touch the tire and it would with its paw. He would then tell it to touch the rim and sure enough it would put its paw on the rim. That dog also liked to play fetch with itself in the house. It would carry the ball up the stairs get to the top and drop it back down for hours on end. Smart dogs, maybe too smart at times.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
