We did a barn hunt practice as a club, just for fun! Gretchen loved it! She was a natural and apparently a pointer!
Butcher (RIP) was a true pointer. My daughter in law and I would take him on back country wilderness hikes. His ability to gently stalk and point out both small and large game was amazing for a doberman. Deer, elk, game birds, porcupine, even a black bear a time or two. He was never trained and never used for hunting, but his natural ability was amazing.
We were having lunch one afternoon deep in the Salmon-Huckleberry wilderness. Butcher wandered off. Generally, he never wandered off from us, especially during lunch! LOL. I found him up the trail in full point about 10 yards from a gorgeous buck in velvet. Loanda (my DIL), Butcher and I just sat and watched until that big boy finally decided to meander off. It was so cool...
