    Default Sporting Life Retriever TV on Amazon Prime

    Hey folks, you may have seen this already, but since I'm currently sitting around the house in a leg cast, I've been forced into being a couch potato for a little while. The good thing is I found this series on waterfowl dogs included with amazon prime: Sporting Life Retriever TV

    Not sure how good it is yet, I think it just shows the relationship between different people and their waterfowl dogs. Awesome hunting footage in there so far.

    Watched it when I had shoulder surgery this winter, good tv geared to the sportsman. Wish there was more of it out there. A couple will bring a tear to a dog lovers eye.....

    I record all the bird hunting shows. This one is one of my least favorites. It is a big commercial for this guys kennel. The tips are very simplistic and most of the training looks like it’s on a golf course. Not realistic at all. I remember one where a girl came home from college and took her dog training which was sitting at her side and throwing a bumper on a lawn. To me that’s not training.

    I did think it is was a lot of story, not enough tips, but I'll watch it nonetheless - I like watching the dogs work. Any other recommendations for bird hunting shows you mention? I have a lot of time to kill this week...

    I know these folks, they are quality people that breed and train great dogs, and they hunt hard as anybody.

    I've only watched an episode and a half, but I agree that it looks like an infomercial disguised as a hunting show. Reminds me a little of that Honey Brake show in that regard. Probably a pretty good marketing move. I'll watch another episode or two to give it a chance.

    No doubt. It costs money to produce a hunting show.
