Multiple dogs

Recommended Posts

I don't own a pointer and flusher but I have a pointer and have hunted him with flushing dogs. It's only been a handful of times so I wouldn't say I have too much experience with it. Is there a specific question about doing this or are you just trying to see how common it is?

I have 2 GPS's and have hunted with flushers. I normally prefer not to do it as most flushers dont honor my dogs points. Thats not to say there arent any out there that do honor points, when they do it can be alot of fun.

I just dont like that I have to put alot of trust in somebody elses dogs.

My 2 dogs work well enough together I dont see the need for a flusher. Pointing, retrieving and tracking downed birds isnt an issue for me.

My lab has only hunted with other labs. When I had the chance to get her out with a friends GSP I hesitated because I didn't know how she would handle it. I was also thinking of eventually getting a pointer and thinking of how training would go with these both of these dogs. I have always had labs, but had a blast hunting behind a GSP.

I own both and will work them together but the pointer must be solid and I mean solid on birds. If he has the tendancy to creep a flushing dog in the picture will make him start busting his birds. I would never do it with a young pointer only older more experienced dogs! But yes it can be done!

We do it all the time and works out great for us. I run two labs and he runs his two GSP's. His dogs work out much farther and don't bump birds at all. The labs work very close to me and get the retrieving and flushing duties most of the time. As wierd as it sounds, when my labs hear the hawk scream when the the pointers point, they know to get over there for some action! Has worked great for pheasants, huns, and sharpies.

I have a 3 year old lab. Close working and does very well with other labs hunting. I'm just wondering if she will start to range out if there is another dog with her doing that. Any suggestions or other problems anyone else can see happening. Would it be better to work them alone until the pointer matures a little?

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
