Once again I'll open myself up for critique...
It seems that most of you folks use your "training collars" when hunting.
I don't hunt much anymore but, when I did I never used my collar when hunting.
Hunting was what the dog was "trained" for and we (dog's and gunners) were out for a good time and to relax.
Those of you that put the collar on your dogs to hunt - -Are you and your dog(s) "relaxing" or training??
I had a conversation a couple of Sundays ago with friend who is a FT Pro. While we were talking he paused to quite the dogs in the yard. I asked; Are things O.K.? He replied, that Sunday was "Their" day off.
So I guess my question would be; Is Hunting relaxation or training?? Work or pleasure??
Train to hunt??? Or hunt to train???
