Same as yours buy the sounds.  Indicating deer and fetching ducks, anything more is a bonus really.  luckily the older dog still works well, so first year or two for pup will likely be mostly obedience training and getting used to the bush, dont like to rush into field stuff too early and end up creating a bad habit or two.

So Gunner is growing crazy fast, and fitting into his new life as a dog.
I was doing some training with him to walk out in front the other day which is no easy task. Had him going along and he would sniff the ground which was a little disappointing as I wanted him winding.
Turned to go back, nose straight into the air, I hadn't really thought about wind direction but as soon as we walked into the wind he was all over it.
Just another example of dog training owner.🙂
Good luck Gunner you have your work cut out.😋

lol you arent wrong about them training you.
as for wind Vs ground scenting....each dog will decide which is thier thing...Ive owned and hunted over both,each has good and bad points.current bitch is pure air/wind scent orientated and as she is only allowed to work in close that suits me just fine n dandy.... on a stinking hot day or when its persisting down or has just done so,the air scenter comes into thier own,a ground scenting dog may struggle in those conditions,but other wise they are just as good,just diferent.

That's interesting MD, it is good to know. How do you get on ground scenting if the deer is meandering into the wind?
Also on a different topic, Food. Sometimes Gunner gobbles up his food in half a minute sometimes it sits there half a day. Is that normal for a pup. He gets the same amount of food pretty much.

You are already displaying some good behaviors DHDS. It should work out ok. The dog will have you trained up in no time.  Smiley Grin
