A German Wire-Haired Pointer, or in my case a Deutsch Drahthaar, we have many skills which include pointing, flushing, and the retrieving of game.
I’ve become quite skilled at running full speed, and doing the searching. It’s fun and productive and so enjoyable! I have a hard time waiting for the next hunting season.
I’m quite skilled at pointing as well! Find the intended bird, give a point, check to see you are being noticed, flush ’em and boom! Maybe not all my points are poetic, but I get the job done! Practice, practice, practice is my motto and look forward to becoming the best I can be!
Once you get the hang of it, you will have a most rewarding day of retrieving. I’ve had many, many trips and hunts. And quite my share of retrieves, so I’m thinking I’m like a professional now! Chukers, pheasants, whatever your needs are, I’m on it!
And then just the other day, there I was minding my own business, and suddenly seeing this flying creature, I gave chase. Now I know it’s not hunting season, but why not practice. I pointed and flushed, I tried to retrieve, but sadly it was having none of it and turned and attacked! OUCH! What happened? Oh no, my poor eye!! I don’t want to be blind! Get me some medicine, hurry please…..
So to recap, flush, point and retrieve to your heart’s content, but definitely do NOT try to retrieve a Bee … They won’t be happy and neither will you!
