Maeve is a pretty girl! 40lbs is perfect. I agree more joy with the dogs hunting than anything else.
Characteristics sounds similar to my Vizsla....He will not hunt unless he can see me, turns into a sissy. Won’t hunt for any of my buddies either unless I’m right there with them . I’m guessing Vizslas were bred that way? Not sure....She's not a pointer, Braque d'Auvergne is the breed, though they do point well. They hunt closer in not as far out as pointers/setters do. She is still lots of pup. I haven't had her up hunting in Idaho. Lots of "bird" in this one. She'll be awesome if I do my part. Hopefully life will allow it.
Get a copy of "Training Your Retriever" by James Lamb Free and follow it to the letter. You and your retriever will bond in no time.I do have a young male golden that is very skittish. Any tips on breaking a dog into gunfire slowly. He jumps at the sound of the slide racking on my pistol. I don’t know if he will ever be a gun dog.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
