        I love my Labs, they are versatile, have great heart, love to hunt and at the same time are awesome pets and companions.

          This question was on here a couple weeks ago and I think I was the only one who didn't say lab, mine is the treeing walker coonhound. Its what I grew up hunting with, but #2 is a brittany and #3 is a lab

                i like the beagle. i know this sounds weird but our beagle will now flush birds like a lab will. She also hunts bunny. They also are very energetic and a fun dog to have. I think they are very versatile since you can use them in a field or in 2 feet of powder snow in a ceder bog

                    I like male English cocker spaniels. Great upland flushing dogs and the ladies think they are really cute. That being said,, I grew up with English pointers and a German shorthair, and hunt with friends that all have English setters.

                        I have had German SHorthairs and agree with everything said about them, but I am now split #1 is my Wiemerarner Ava she is perfect in the field and the home everybody who comes to the house looks at my overly friendly couch potato and sners "thats your bird dog?" until they see her work also she is uncommon enough that she gets all kinds of crazy looks at petsmart!LOL #1.5 was my much missed departed Catahoula origionally we got him to work cattle, but he had one heck of a knack for running hogs(this was several years ago when we lived in the south)he was fearless, but a real sweet heart when he wanted to be.

                          I currently do not have a bird dog (my ancestors would be ashamed) I have hunted over just about every type of upland and waterfowl dog. I grew up with a Brittany, but I have to say the next hunting dog I will get will either be a German Shorthair or a German Wirehair depending on if I move to Alaska or stay in Oklahoma. I like Shorthairs and Wirehairs because they are at home in an upland field and in the duck blind.

                              Black Labrador Retrievers. It is a lifetime tradition. The finest bloodlines. Field trial dogs make the best hunting dogs. 95% of National Champions were Black Labs.

                              If there were any wild pheasants around here, I would have Labs, English Pointers, and English setters.

                              Bird dogs of Champion breeding are equally impressive at What They Do. They're also quite friendly.

                                Yes, it is from chatter from the rifling button. If they lapped the barrel, that would be gone. If it isn't too bad, it will wear away from shooting....
