Hello, New-comer to this.
I have been a ghillie for 20 years and like to work dogs.
Things I like are stalkers who know what Tormentil is. Those who don't need a kick in the ballacks because its everywhere, easy to spot a real countryman, and good, clean humour.
Two hunters were dragging their dead deer back to their car. Another hunter approached pulling his along too. "Hey, I don't want to tell you how to do something ... but I can tell you that it's much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won't dig into the ground." After the third hunter left, the two decided to try it. A little while later one hunter said to the other, "You know, that guy was right. This is a lot easier!" "Yeah, but we're getting farther from the truck," the other added.
2 hates are carrying other peoples deer and BMH's - many can't tell if a deer is 50metres in front of them even if the wind is perfect. It amazes me people spend over £20 on these dogs. I would give someone £20 to take one if I was lumbered with it. I see these dogs all the time with clients, brilliant trackers, but even a cocker spaniel can do that.
I have a great respect for those Vizsla's. I have never owned one. Can't afford it. But each time I have taken a client out it is an absolute pleasure to work. I would count my German Shepherd a good dog and as steady as an ox, but nothing compared to a Vizsla.
