German hunting dogs, mostly used for birds in the US. At least that's my understanding. :)

This, too, shall pass........

Cool. Where I grew up, bird dogs came in two varieties. Pointers and setters. I don't have an interest in hunting, so I haven't kept up. It may be a good thing I don't want to hunt since my hound is the laziest animal alive.

They are relatively new to me as well. German hunting dogs anyway. I've had traditional hounds for 17 years. That makes me feel old. True none the less.

This is my first hound. This is the only time in 30 years that I have been without a labrador. I went duck hunting once. Almost froze to death. Spent the entire time praying that the ducks would not show up so I would have to shoot at them and then get all frozen worse from the ice water. None showed up. Lol. Guess I'm not into the spirit of hunting.

They are both German import bird dogs. Kurzhaar's are essentially what americanized German shorthairs came from. Drats are similar to a wirehaired pointer. Drats are used a lot as utility dogs. We hunt pheasant, quail & blood track with ours. I will post a few pics when I'm done in the barn :)

The good thing about hound hunting is the ability to release your prey. 90% of the critters I catch with my dogs will be released. It also allows for select harvest. With the exceptions of raccoons, I don't let any females caught with my dogs get killed. It's a little hard to sex a raccoon at night. :) I get to take my kids to the woods pretty much year around. Let them see lots of cool stuff that 99% of the kids in the world would be jealous of and it's still there next time.

Cool. German shorthairs are nice dogs. One of the guys in the band I play in has one.

That's the way I go fishing. Catch and release.

Me, too. Unless I'm deep sea fishing. I don't keep any fresh water fish.

I went fishing and my horse bit me. Not really, it is just that I wanted to be sure that nobody accused us of wandering from the subject. Lol. I was on another thread, and people got all emotional about subject change. So if your horse kicks, bites, and throws you off, get your bird dog and go fishing. There. Neatly tied together.

I really should be riding right now, but it is still 95 degrees at 6:40 pm.
