As a UK member where we do a lot of driven game shooting, and also friends with Col. Blimp of the Marches Gundog Training Group and many of its members, would it be interesting to compare the difference in the hunting styles and thence the training methods here and in the States?
we do wildfowling and walked up (rough shooting) as well but i tend to be working my spaniels and lab on formal shoots either beating (driving birds to the guns or to a flushing point) or picking up ( gathering shot birds behind the gunline).
Do you in the States use different dogs for each discipline?
