Thread: Anyone hunt 2 flushing dogs on pheasants?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone hunt 2 flushing dogs on pheasants?

    My Lab is 6 years old now and I'm thinking about getting another pup. I can add another collar on my tritronics but wondering just how difficult it is working two flushing dogs on pheasants. I rarely shock or even blow my whistle on my current lab. Don't have much to worry about with him. I'd feel terrible leaving one at home. Anyone else run two?

    When they were young, swapped them out; now that they are seasoned, hunt them together. Opening weekend Edge pointed the first bird of the day; the other lab came in & busted his point. Like above, working on the 3rd to go along with them.

    Depends on how many birds, hunters and how you work birds. Sure not an issue in Ohio.

    at one point this past week in ND, I ran mu 2 and my friend ran his 2 at the same time. Hardest part is keeping your eye on the one about to flush a bird.

    Sounds like you need to add a spaniel to the family

    Just did it for the first time yesterday and it was a blast! It was warmer weather than we expected, so once the older guy got too hot, we started switching them out. Then when it cooled off we ran both again. Just make sure the older one has no bad habits to teach the younger one. That was one thing I overlooked.
