    Default User Survey...Is this a diehard FT board? What do YOU do with YOUR dogs?

    Saw a post on another board where someone felt that a hunt tester on RTF was a "sitting duck". Bummed me out a little.

    Please take a moment to click all that apply to what you do. It is a public poll...folks can see what you picked.

    Thanks,

    the Janitor

    I marked other because its field trial and hunt only...for now , my interest in hunt test is strictly so I can broaden my knowledge and meet other people to train with and hunt with, and also converse with about dogs. I dont ever want to be considered as a FT snob

    I voted twice. Once for field trial only 'cause it said hardcore and I'm hardcore when it comes to trialing.

    I also voted I do it all 'cause I hunt test and hunt too but mainly it's the trialing that brings me to the line.

    Damn, I love to send my dogs for the birds one at a time on a hard test. A hard blind can make me breathless.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    This board in Balanced -

    The other board is not - Heavy HRC/UKC - and some with a MAJOR Chip(s) on their shoulders.

    Also - you moderate fairly and quickly. (and I am not just saying that to suck up either).

    Howard, you did it right...I probably chose wording that was not ideal. It was meant as a poll that allows multiple selections.

    Just wanted to see the data after it gets some activity... I honestly believe that RTF is a very diverse group of dog gamers.... Well, maybe not too many of the Brit-style gamers...but we have some of them too.

    I agree completely.

    I might add there is nothing wrong with that.
