    Good stuff. That looks like a pointers pointing to me, but I'm colored by my world view. So would these two be indicators in the act of indicating??

    In the Aussie/kiwi dog world we do break up the terms indicate and point.

    People are used to the front leg cocked, straight tail point of upland bird hunting as a "point".

    Whereas indicating is any form of clear air scenting, changes in their body or movements etc. that indicates deer.

    We train them to not lock up on point from when they first hit hot scent as the deer could be a ways ahead or moving and then you struggle to catch up. At the same time not all dogs point deer the same way they point birds. Mine is a great example. She does the classic point when bird hunting but is more an indicator for big game. And will become more rigid and slow in her movements when you're close. I prefer deer hunting with her as you need to have a stronger bond and level of understanding of your dogs idiosyncracies to be successful as opposed to bird hunting.

    This trip we both shot stags over our pooches, definitely wouldn't have got mine without Ellie!

    "....indicating is any form of clear air scenting, changes in their body or movements etc......."

    Upland pointers will exhibit the similar behavior(s) - you can clearly tell when the head cocks high and forward, the gait becomes a smooth deliberate trot, and they hold back posture as they're advancing. My griffon/lab older girl is particularly fond of picking up scent and going into stalk mode... Very cool hunting ungulates and birds with the same dogs. All good stuff. Dogs, love 'em.

    This is about as close as my Setter gets to a hunting dog. She does love her stuffed squirrel though. Been my best bud for going on 10 years!

    She recently passed away but she was my wing man. She loved the slough behind my home and chasing all the critters around it.

    My first dog, his first retrieve on a bird, and last retrieve on a bumper his last summer still swimming at about 16.5 years old, a few months later was his last. Good old dog. Had several thousand retrieves on ducks and a couple hundred retrieves on honkers. The best dog is a dog that is as stubborn as you are to really open your eyes.

    Lost this guy a couple of years ago. He was a pure bred Alaskan husky mutt. He sure did love to hunt grouse.


    He had a partner who was more along for the walk

    Revisiting this thread brought tears to my eyes this morning. Love seeing these pictures.

    This is Nyssa and she is 16 weeks old. So far she's hunted with me for huns, blues, pheasant and rabbits. She's wound up as hell and very smart. I'm finding it much more difficult to train a pup with 3 kids in the house - there's a lack of consistency and control. But we'll get there.

    She knows I can't catch her if she decides that's the state of affairs she wants to create.

    Great looking dogs! Sorry everybody, not real motivated to do much at work so I am playing around. These are my mutts. The black one is a heck of a mouser. She is best buddies with the cat who thinks he is a dog, so they learn from each other I think. The yellow one is kindof a handful who switches from sweetheart to ornery son of a gun midstride. Not hunting dogs, but buddies for sure.

    The chocolate lab in the photo is a new addition. His name is Tank, which is fitting because he is a big boy. He needs to lose quit a bit of weight. His family moved away and long story short I ended up with him. Now my black lab has a buddy when I am gone at work all day

    I've been lucky to grow up with dogs on the ranch. As a Kid, my dad had a line of english pointers that originated with Buck who he got in Ft. Benning Georgia just before he shipped out to vietnam




    Then Came Sabe ("understand" in Spanish), His Son Rocky, Rockies Full brother Rowdy. We hunted Deer and Birds with them.




    My First dog was a Border collie named Sophie. Here she is in her later years with my daughter who is 12 now...There were others since her, but there wer none like her.


    And now I'm going to get a Step dog. By July of this year, Bogey the black lab is going to join his human as they move 800 miles to be with me.
