Your dog's tail posture is reminiscent of FC-AFC Flood Bay Boomerang!

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
Skills can be taught. Character is either there or it's not!
I'm musically illiterate, but was curious about the music on your videos. Was the music your own production?
There's an "Irishwhistler" here, now RTF has an "Irish Upland."

Thanks. I saw Irishwhistler alright - the photographer

Great Videos! Great dog and great shooting! I like that you barely have to speak to your dog. Around my parts you hear guys hollering at their dogs. LOL. Did you train him yourself?
ha, thank you very much. When he gets birdy in range like that I can just leave him work. When he's not birdy and just quartering, and starts to range out a bit I give him a double pip of the whistle to remind him to change direction and sweep back across me. I did train him (I'm still training him - he just turned two). I used to holler more, until one day this season I decided to stop that, and trust him. And low and behold, he responded nicely to an occasional whistle. The first 10 minutes of the hunt he tends to be over zealous, but then settles into a pattern.
There is always plenty to work on - I'm addicted!
Very nice videos and a really nice dog. Love watching them get birds. You can sure tell when they are on hot scent, so cool.
Great shooting too, good to see your still human<LOL> I can be VERY human on some days!!!
