    Now that is a flush LOL

    My previous Lab caught a few grouse like that mid air, but that was an impressive jump!

    How do you know the goose was from Canada?
    Every boy should have a dog...and a mother nice enough to let him.

    My dog has never failed a test. His owner has only failed to prepare him for the test.

    Very Cool! That looks exactly like a clip from Fowl Dawgs 4. You should try to edit in slow motion.

    That clip was used in Fowl Dawgs 4 and a hunt from Fowl Pursuit X DVD. Trace is a QAA "sometimes" trial dog, full time hunting dog out of Chopper x Micki (Little Man x Desi). I've posted a few other clips of him on Facebook scaling walls and most have somehow found their way to YouTube.

    Pretty cool, but that guy was foolish to ring the goose's neck on camera. I want to know how the goose ended up just wandering around in the spread with those guys all standing around.

    That person was me. We were filming for an episode of RNT-V, we were working a big bunch of geese and all that finished was a single, so we sent the dog to kick him up, but he caught him. Goose got injured, so we added it to the bag. As far as dispatching the cripple what's the difference between shooting one and breaking its neck. Everyone that's ever waterfowl hunted more than once has had to do it. Everyone that trains with live flyers has done it. It's simple, quick and effective....AND its a part of the hunt. While I don't agree with glorifying the death of an animal I do believe in keeping things real. I quit sugar coating what we as hunters do in the field to appease the anti's.

    I'm a hunter. Have been since I first went dove hunting with my grandfather when I was about 7 yrs old (1962). Have wrung plenty of necks, pulled heads off, walked up and shot wounded deer, hogs, and nilgai in the head, and shot hogs in traps. I get what happens in the field. The goose was injured. It's humane to wring the neck. Better death than most wild creatures get, yada, yada, yada, but if you think hunting is safe in today's society, you are delusional. Haven't I been reading about places where they can no longer use live fliers at hunt tests and field trials? Didn't some midwest state just cancel dove season again (after only having re-instated it a couple of years ago)? Haven't I been reading about gun bans? How hard would it have been to step out of the frame (or edit out that few seconds) to help protect our sport? Hunters are a small minority of the US population. It wouldn't take that much to sway public opinion completely against us. It is foolish to be posting the less attractive parts of our sport for our enemies to see.

    If they started running footage of what happens in slaughter houses, there would be a lot more vegetarians.

    I wish more hunters out there had this mindset.
