I've taken the liberty of posting Paul's question in Poll Form(well, at least I hope so since I've never tried this before.) Hope you don't mind Paul....

Paul Young said....

2 dogs with their owners are in identical duck blinds on the same day in the same location (i know this is all physically impossible). 4 ducks are shot in each blind with identical falls. fc/afc in blind a,grhrch in blind b. both dogs mark the same 3 birds,leaving 1 for a blind to be picked up. both dogs go to the area of the falls and successfully retrieve all three birds without big hunts or needing to be handled. the fc/afc lines the blind bird which fell in tules about 150 yds out,while the grhrch has a crisp 2 whistle blind.
later that day the same dogs/handlers decide to go upland hunting,again under exactly the same conditions.the grhrch has been doing this a while,and has the title (degree) to prove he knows the game. his handler has little to do other than choose how to hunt the area and cut the dog loose,giving the occasional command when changing direction,crossing fences,etc. the fc/afc needs considerably more handling to do the same job,and is frequently trying to push out past gun range,requiring the hunt to be a much noisier affair. nevertheless their bags are identical at the end of the hunt. which dog would you rather hunt with? maybe this should be a poll,but i'm not computer literate enough to set it up.-paul

Way too hypothetical to answer. Depends on WHICH FC/AFC and WHICH GRHRCH. They're all just INDIVIDUAL dogs and can't be lumped into a specific mold based on the title they may bear.

You're not trying to cause a "non stinky" thread again, are you ? :?

I did not vote.

My choice for hunting partner is a "solid" intermediate level "or better" dog with good blind manners. Both of those dogs fit the requirement.

GENERALLY SPEAKING --

I'd rather hunt with the GRHRCH. I'd rather play the games with the FC/AFC.

And at this point in my life, I'd rather play the games than hunt. And that says a lot! Because I LOVE to hunt!

Maybe we should start another poll -- Which would you rather play the games with?

Fun question that does not really work

Better question would be... Who here actually has that choice?

Andr?

Who would really prefer GRHRCH UH +1000 points. Now were talking!

I had to consult my hunting partner on this one... turns out we had the same answer. I asked the macho choco dawg which he would rather hunt with, keep in mind "hunt with" = "hump" in his mind, an FC or an HRCH... he said whichever would sit still the longest. I agree.

I had a thought to post on this before I got down to shaYne's idea.

My thought was personal, but in line with Bailey's. I'd have to meet both dawgs, maybe pet them a little. Just get to know them a bit to pick my preference.

Their titles would be the last thing I'd worry about.

I'd rather hunt than play the games -- but I definitely enjoy both :)
