Real old school partridge hunting…

Even though people have been using pointing dogs for over 400 hundred years, the early history of these animals is tough to make out. To this day, people are  still wondering how these dogs were used to hunt game.

  1. This is a fascinating video and certainly backs up the notion that the origin of pointing dogs is rooted in a technology that predates firearms. I have seen illustrations of this,but have never seen it in actual practice. As you know, the term ” setter” is derived from a description of the “setting dogs” that preceded them. Thanks for sharing this. It truly is “old school”.

  2. When I head back to GA next fall, I think I might have to try this approach. It certainly would keep the shell costs down!
