To many people going and I didn’t know any of them , nor hunted there before .
I agree with you , I still take some folks hunting despite what happened to me in the past I moved on all my dogs I’ve had over the years there was no price tag on them they were my pride and joy I shared it with someone else that day I hope to make a better impression and get someone hooked on it , I found it was kids and teenagers who listened better to me , I still occasionally take someone on a rabbit hunt adults and kids... seems like when you have good dogs and deer season is over all deer hunters wants you take them on rabbit hunt they “did when they were kids , it was a lot fun” “I didn’t know people still rabbit hunted with dogs” and so on but you can’t trust everyone with a gun and shooting on ground around your dogs ...I know where everyone is coming from But and a big But You cant come on and whine about the decline of the sport If you dont take new people and get em involved.My reservations are just as deep as anyone’s.But new people getting involved is what will keep us running JMO
$500.00 or more for the dog!I worked with two guys , one had the dogs and the other had a place to hunt and a 14 year old son . One hunt the 14 year old shot the mans best dog . They never spoke again . The man with the kid was going through a divorce and didn’t have any extra money and told him if I had the money I would pay you for the dog . The guy with the dog didn’t think it was a accident . Sad day anyway you look at it . I tell all the new hunters with me , don’t shoot on the jump , most likely the rabbit is going to circle and don’t get so excited that you shoot my dog , it’s only a rabbit and it will cost you $500 dollars if you kill one of my dogs .
