interesting combo......probably easier/safer options out there. at end of day its you that will have to feed/house/train and look after dog for next 12 years so its you that will know what you happy with,also what you expect dog to do. I mean if you want pooch for company that will stay at heel,maybe show interest if something close and find downed animal anything from dashound to st bernard would fit the bill,as to how quiet it will be???? that depands on the dog , how hyper it is plays a big part too.

Had a Bull Mastiff growing up.  Great nature but prone to hip and elbow issues.  Might come on quick with extensive outings in the hills.  The dogs best asset was looking tough but was better suited to sleeping.  Might not be the best worker.

Better to buy a dog that has more promising hunting traits than a stab in the dark.. Good posts above say it all.

Starting out with a dog that doesnt live up to your goals and expectations would prove very frustrating, especially if its becoming part of the family and you decide you dont really want it or have to give up your plans for the dog. Heartbreak and strife are on the horizon.

Get yourself something , cross or pure, that has the best chance, with the appropriate work, that will live up to your hopes and expectations. Dont make it diffucult for yourself. Load the odds in your favour.. Smiley

i would go for a heading type dog for your first mut, mine in strong eyex collie  and is coming along well. find one off a station or farm not somones pets, try and find the most relaxed chilled puppy you can thats from good breeding. you could go the vizla route great hunting dogs, but there pussys and  take alittle more time and patients to train. my two cents anyways,

Mastiffs are a low exercise breed meaning they will get tired quite quickly especially in terrain that we hunt in. Vizslas are very high energy breed but i think for hunting you will want as high energy as you can handle. Vizslas are good but they require a lot of training and exercise daily. Heading dogs are a great option for hunting as are germans and vizslas if you have the time and commitment.
