    webby they will convert to deer if they are steady on game first. Even a spaniel will do a job but not as well as a purpose bred dog or lab.
    ATB with it

    any excusse

    a lab is perfect all rounder My dad had 7 different labs that i can remember they worked everything you can shoot in this country includeing retrieving foxes, that said he was out every day with them working professionaly.

    sure yours will be good if given the right training/experience

    I have used several labs as deer dogs and they all did a great job,even one that started at 7 years old so I'm sure your lab will do fine.

    I have never tried my Lab but I should, I am also currently training a Chessie pup for the game shoots but I might spend a bit of time on him with the Deer
