They are all pretty good if you get one from a good breeding that hunts in a way you are comfortable with. What kind of birds do you hunt for? And would you prefer a dog that flushed birds or pointed them?

Not trying to be an smarta$$, but that's a pretty open question. The best kind is the kind that hunts. It all depends on what you want. Pointer, flusher, waterfowl, etc. How big of a dog, what kind of personality, is it going to be a family dog, etc.

If you can give us more to go on, that would be helpful.

Mr. School, please do a bunch more research on hunting and hunting with dogs. And how to train and care for and handle a hunting dog. There is no such thing as a "best hunting dog" as the guys have already said.

I suspect, and I mean no disrespect, that you need to gather a lot more information before you take on a dog. Best thing for you. And the best thing for the dog.

Thank you.

Especially if maybe you are still in "school" and just having some fun on a forum? wink

I don't know guys, it's a fairly straightforward question with a clearcut answer: German wirehaired pointer.

Anyone who tells you otherwise is either a liar or lab lover, neither of which you want to associate with, Mr. School.

Trust me.

I would say the kind you are comfortable with and that the two of you form a bond together that you can trust eachother and not be the one in the field screaming at your dog all day

If you want to flush a lot of roosters, you can't go wrong with a Springer Spaniel. Of course, without proper training, there isn't any dog that will be a good hunting dog.

I'm with Tyler on the Wirehair thing....as long as you shave their face and get them to quit killing cats (In which case they are German Shorthairs).

Okay! Enough already. I would have thought you guys would have figured out way back when that the original post was a joke, probably posted by some mindless member of the younger generation because he or she had nothing to do in class at that moment.

I suspect they have long left the scene and thus missed all the nice helpful answers that have been posted.

Including mine. LOL

Setterguy,

the truck and the football team are subjective. Depends on how well each are running!

Pabst is by far the bast commercial beer! laugh

Good Luck!

It does have the blue ribbon so your point is hard to argue.

With the single exception of Bass Ale the beers found in this part of the world are swill, brewed (more or less) of a mixture of chemicals and feed mill floor sweepings, and produced to be slopped down by the great unwashed and unknowing masses.

The last dependable, rugged and go anywhere truck available was the Mercedes UniMog.

And what was the third thing........

Best truck would be one that's not giving you problems, best beer is a cold one, and as far as football teams go, anyone I can drive my truck to the game and drink cold beer on the tailgate before the game is good!

That's easy: F-150, Surly Furious, and any team but Minnesota.

I have to bake cookies for a huge group and was wondering if anyone knows any fast and easy home made cookie recipes?

I think the best hunting dog is one that can make home made cookies for a huge group! wink

Those are easy...

Truck - NONE! They all burn gas & oil and go through tires

Beer - Doesn't matter they all suffer the same fate the only difference is the urnal they are flushed from.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
