    No motty do your own thing to me means you’ll know ur own dogs limits.Books can give good pointers no doubt but I believe the owner will know best As I say if the books help hound dog then it won’t do him any harm reading them I’ve bought gun dog books and wildfowling books but they can only give you so much pointers Different when you get into the field or marsh with your dog on your own

    HOW SUPPRESSING If you read my post Motty I didn’t say Don’t buy a book I said do your own thing You could read a hundred books but there not about your own dog You and you alone will know the dog you have No book can tell you any different But if hound dog wants to buy a book then he should do it and good luck to him

    Mate there’s plenty of training books but my advice would be to just do your own thing if all your looking is your Labrador to sit still in the hide then mark and swim out after wildfowl Obidience is the major factor I think with labs If your buying a pup with good breeding blood lines then the instinct will be in the dog You should have years of pleasure using your Labrador wildfowling My big dog Duke won’t win any field trials but has great drive looking and finding shot duck 🦆

    Mother Lines ????

    Lads I know this has probably been debated before but wanted to ask s few questions regarding using mother lines for decoys Most of my duck shooting has been fresh water the odd time I go to the foreshore I hid in a gutter with muddy dog 🐕Now come New season 2019 will be shooting a new bit of foreshore with 1 to 2 meter tide depending on the weather and a Motherline a must Q1 what size of weight would forum recommend on end of line Q2 I’ve seen motherline clips on net than can be clipped onto decoys then mother line the clips apparently don’t move on the main line Q3 Would you hook decoys on line first then put out Sorry if the serious Fowler’s (foreshore) roll there eyes but any information for better decoying would be helpful 👍

    Are side by side guns obsolete

    Think we all have to admit even thou I love my s/s that o/u has overtaken them in the field And definitely on the clay range u can blame manufacturers producing machine made o/u for good prices beretta/Brownings etc but there definitely easier for the novice to shoot can’t see it changing anytime soon unfortunately 😔

    Are side by side guns obsolete

    Interesting original post which i think is true unfortunately Most new shooters going to clay grounds get handed a o/u and are told its easier to use which is probably true S/S have dropped in price But will never get rid of my aya no3 magnum love shooting it Also have browning auto but prefer the s/s Just something nice putting 2 cartridges into the s/s and closing it 👍

    Thanks another question how far would you space out the decoys on mother line mate said over 3 feet apart so they dont tangle ?

    Benelli 828u

    If that’s the o/u Benelli the mate tried one and didn’t like the recoil he said the felt recoil was bad He asked the fire arm dealer who told him some people bought them then traded them back As I say this was the mates opinion I personally didn’t like the look of them took one of the gun rack they looked (only my opinion) too toy like but never shot it Try them on the clay range see what you think mate good luck
