This is an older picture. Maybe 4 months old here.

With your pointers, do they smell the bird and then point to where it is? Then you just walk towards that area?
Sorry for the extreme stupid question. I have only hunted with labs.

Typically when they hit scent they hang up a bit to figure out which direction to head. It's usually pretty obvious when they are on a trail. As the scent gets stronger they will slow down and eventually lock up. Depending on the dog and conditions, that can be anywhere from a few yards to a few feet in front of them. If grouse are sitting well, we usually try to circle out front and work back towards the dog when they lock up. There's been several times we've even had to kick grass lumps or thick brush to get a pheasant/grouse to bust in front of a dog. Gets the blood flowing for sure!

My lab, Sadie, has been gone for a month now, a total of 6 weeks i have sent her off to get trained and she comes back a week from today. She's a hunter, and she points before flushing. The guy training her said it was a good thing and I don't disagree. It will be nice for her to lock on the flush when I want her to.
A month without the dog is weird. The first week and a half it was kind of nice. I didn't have to bring her outside when it was raining/snowing or get up early on a Saturday. But, after a week and a half it got old and too quiet in the house. I just hope this week goes by fast!
