Most of the field trial dogs I know of are not hunted much if at all.
They are down south for the winter so the competitors dont get a couple extra months of training over them.
Look at the amount of pros that are south for the winter durring hunting season.

I think it a good practice to follow for dogs that will see shorter marks and blinds also.
I think Mistakes I have made in the past verymuch included Hunting dogs before they were ready,,, and letting sloppy Basics become habit.
I think for Mortals its hard enough to keep standards high with a young dog, without adding the excitement, and distraction to the handler of a hunting trip..
Straight lines are a wonderful thing to watch.
It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

Oh, the irony. I just seconds ago finished watching a film of John Olin with 2xNFC King Buck and Bill Cline with NFC Massie's Sassy Boots hunting ducks together in Stuttgart following the 1956 National Open.
It reminded me of this thread.
Drive is the manifestation of Desire, and measured in Style.
Thank you judges who score Style, you are preserving Desire!
No never hunt a field trial dog that is not what they are bred for.
I have learned I need these dogs much more than they need me. Tim Bockmon
What is everyone's idea of a field trial dog?
Are you talking about a dog that runs some Derby's and Q's or a dog that runs opens and Amateurs?
Also what is your idea of hunting the dog? 3-5 times a year or 10 to 40 times a year?
