My husband, boys, and Deuce (yellow lab) are the hunters in our family, although I do help with the training. Hunting means mornings, cold, and wetness and I avoid those things if at all possible ! I'll post pics when duck season comes around again. Then I can post pics of what I do with all they bring home. Mmm....duck gumbo

Very cool pic! Nice looking snow geese! I used to take a couple trips down south to shoot some snows, the flocks are so large and constantly coming in, the dogs loved it, they got run absolutely ragged but they slept good on the drive home!

I'm not a hunter by a long shot, but I do have an unhealthy obsession with watching my dog mow down small wild animals...

My grandpa has a TON of private acres up in Ely, all undeveloped forest. We're going up there this summer and I'm going to unleash Garp on the woodland critters. I'm expecting carnage...

He got a possum last year. That was unintentional and terrifying. Those things are huge and mean. Only a couple of scratches though. Possum didn't fare so well...

That is a very cool area, I take a few fishing and camping trips a year up to MN. And man those possums are nasty! Lots and lots of teeth for sure. When I used to run larger dogs for coon in a seasons time they would invariably tangle with a couple possums. And yeah just like you mentioned, the possums typically do not come out of it well....

I`ve been to 4 hunts, mostly as a photographer and ... how do you call these people in English who um, walk through the forest and make a lot of noise to make the animals come out?

My family has few hunters and although was upset the first time I saw up close as a huge elk was shot down , there is something really .. honest about catching your own food and eating it. Maybe it`s even more ethical than buying commercial meat - at least wild animals have had a decent life. Imo all people should go to a hunt at least once in their life, so that they`d really see from beginning to end where their food is actually coming from and that it`s not just a "product".

Here are some photos:

Beater is the word I think, at least that's what they were in pheasant hunting where I used to live.

Raffles has yet to catch or even see anything bigger than a vole, though he did catch a mouse and a vole in the space of about 20 minutes, which I swear is better than next door's mouser. We had a pheasant around here for a while though I think he scared it off - pity as I was thinking up recipes for it!
His eyesight for prey is terrible though his nose is fantastic. He flushed out a couple of hares a few weeks ago, but was so busy nose to the ground he never saw them.

We take our dogs hunting, but they don't assist in any way. They just like to come along for the ride. We usually hunt deer and elk. Our dogs, Sage and Cotton, enjoy camping out and riding around the wilderness in the truck while we hunt. They usually have orange bandannas for hunting but this year I'm hoping to get them some orange dog vests that are more visible than just the bandannas.
