taking a week off from work is a realhard thing for me to do $ wise, so i would hunt,as long as my dogs were welcome!
when it comes to training,i'm so far out on the fringes of how pros train that i think i would only confuse my dogs and really make the pro grind his teeth.no point in everyone being uncomfortable
good poll,though. i have been known to train rather than hunt.-paul
p.s.-i'm having too much fun to do that to myself,peake! :wink:
I have spent 3 days trying to soak up information from a from a well known American pro. It was just like Joe S. said, trying to drink through a fire hose.
We finished up with over 30 pages of notes.
If I had the chance I'd want to do that again.
Especially if the pro trained at some stage without a collar. I found this invaluable the last time.
I was a duck hunter long before I was a dog owner, however, I don't really believe in guided hunts, it's not really hunting if HE scouts, sets out the decoys and calls, it's just shooting (I would say killing, but I'm not THAT great of a shot!) Hook me up with someone that actually knows how to train a dog, I need help with that, not finding the ducks. I'm gonna be at Redstar's free seminar and it will be my first time to ever even meet a pro trainer, really lookin forward to it!
I already know how to hunt. I always want to know more about training. So I voted I would like to train. But why does it have to be ether or? Couldn't I spend a week training with greatness at some sort of workshop or retreat, and then take the person hunting after?
