After reading the Lab thread, I think those of us with other hunting breeds should chime in. I have had 4 Labs over the years, but our last two dogs have been beagles; smart, funny dogs who have unbounded energy, and can't get enough of chasing rabbits and squirrels. Our current beagle loves to help me when I am stump shooting, and can't wait to go for rides where he can bay at deer and turkeys. If there is a better buddy in the outdoors, I have yet to find one. Let's see who your companions are... fullsizeoutput_260d.jpeg

Yep! Zeke is my buddy! He is a Jack Russell Terror, and goes with me to lots of places. I’m working on getting him to be a wounded critter tracker!!! I Shot that doe in the pic Tim posted yesterday. It wasn’t much of a challenge for him though, as she only went about 25yds. The best track he has done so far was probably 3/4 mile or so. He and I are both still learning and trying to figure it all out. He’s the best dog I have ever had!!!

GoJo the blue heeler. Been my right hand man for 9 years. He goes squirrel hunting with me and sits quietly until its time to go find a downed squirrel. Crazy dog.

Here is Penny Petunia.  My rescue PB.  Here she is on our boat doing a bit of salmon fishing on Lake Ontario.  She is a hoot to say the least and about the friendliest little critter you've ever meant.   20160618_093059.jpg

Bisch's buddy Zeke is a hoot and going to be a fantastic tracker. That 3/4 miler Bisch spoke of was my buck in November, how he did it I don't know, but I can tell you without him my deer would have never been found. Thanks again Bisch and Zeke!!

Here’s my boy brick....all 116lbs of him. He’s a chocolate lab and as stubborn as they come. He’s going to be 10 in March and he’s still all puppy even though he gets up slow these days. He used to bring back arrows for me and leo at deep river bowmen...couldn’t believe when he did that. He’s also my shed dog. He’s an all around good boy

Here is my pack, 

Shidtzu/pomeranian
three miniature poodles

All rescued.

Cocoa is obviously the chocolate colored one, now he was bad news to anything that entered the yard.
he could outrun a greyhound and killed (bar none) everything that entered the backyard.
He would catch and kill rats and just drop them after one bite unless they had little ones he would eat those.
You could give a squirrel 100 foot head start and within the 200 ft distance he would have it.
I have had a lot of dogs in my 72 years, but never had one like cocoa, the vet could never figure out why he was a killer.

If you notice all four are looking at me waiting for my next command, obviously I was their pack leader, used to make the wife mad
as they would totally ignore her when I was there.

Unfortunately we had to put down Cocoa and his sister Willow (the black and tan one) they were 15 years old and both had dementia really bad.
I took care of them for a year after diagnosed with it, but one night cocoa lost it and he tried to kill the other three, luckily I was there and held him all night
until we could get him and his sister to the vet the next day, she was really bad also.

Sorry for the story, but I still grieve over these two.

For those who don't know, poodles are hunting dogs and great retrievers.

Pat, I'm with ya on Beagles. Had three in the past. One day I found my middle one in the fridge chowing down on a sausage platter I had cut up for a holiday party. When I startled him by yelling, he sprung up like a like there was a rabbit in the yard and knocked over two shelves in the fridge. All I could do was LMAO and clean up the kitchen loved that dog.

My Boykin Spaniel Lacie took me squirrel hunting yesterday.  I think she's a little disappointed with my shooting but she still had a good time.

Shootalot- how is your Boykin in the house? When my GSD shooting buddy moves on I'm thinking Boykin, a Lab, or a German Wirehair/Drahthaar.

The aforementioned German Shepherd Dog. Has tracked the occassional deer, but is mostly used to find all of the arrows I lose on the 3D range. And he's incredibly fond of venison jerky. Hope to do better providing it for him next year.

Clovis6, the Boykin makes a great house dog.  They do require a lot of exercise and if left alone and bored, they can tear things up leading to the name "destroykin" which is sometime used for them.  They shed very little and are a joy to be around for the most part.  Lacie is my fourth Boykin I have had over the last 30 years.

Old Fred...(Freddie Bear) is now 4.5 y.o., a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and a snuggle buddy. Hunts pheasants, trees skwerls, and hangs out.

Nate my family bred mtn curs for most of the 80's and early 90's. My childhood dog "spike" was a mtn cur/Australian sheaperd mix. Most driven dog I had ever seen. Would literally try to bite the tree down that hid the squirrel , or tried to dig it up. Every tree in my yard had "moats" dug around them. He was one of the best roving and roaming buddies I ever raised.

Shawn.... "Driven" is right! But these dogs were bred to chase big animals on scent trails miles long, without input from their humans, making decisions on their own. They can be a bit stubborn but hearing them bay at a treed squirrel, coon, or cat is really something. Unlike lion/bear hounds, curs are great family dogs too.

So after watching 2 hours of YouTube videos of "my next hunting dog" (Labs,  Boykins, GWP, Pudel Pointers, and a couple others) with my wife last night she turns to me and says, "I want a Standard Poodle".  With me having made the last 4 choices of dogs (3 German Shepherds and a Lab), I think She's gonna get her way on this one. Anybody ever spent time in the field with a "Hunting Poodle"? I suppose if I let the hair grow out I could make it look like Chuck's dog Old Fred....
