Honky Tonk is a line of pointers that has a lot of NSTRA and the like champions  Here is one of my favorites Honky Tonk Icon owned one of the finest bird dog men I have been around
It takes patience to break a good hound. Ya gotta be persistent and it helps to be a lil smarter then the dog.

I think I may need to rephrase this post to "can GP's work as waterfowling retrievers"-which most of you implied they can. I know they are great with downed quail. They seem somehwat high strung for sitting in a blind most of the morning.

Those Honky Tonks are cool, but I bet they don't come cheap.

My brother's German Shorthairs retrieve really great. He's hunted with them for many years.

Yeah, I haven't ever seen a pointing lab, though. I'd heard they are nominal pointers, or that the realy good ones are super expensive. Have you ever actualy worked with one?

worked with a few of them  One could put a lot of pointers to shame the rest were average. Bird dogs are one of them things that to get a rockstar ya gotta pay through the nose fer it but ya can pick up a 100 dollar puppy and put a lot of time into it and get a dog ya think is really good. Its all in the eye of the beholder. So dont go out and get a cheap pup then only spend half the time with it ya should and wonder why ya think this dog is good but people who know bird dogs think its a pos

Yeah, time is an issue. I aint fully sure I'll put enough time into a dog during the off season to make it a wise or responsible undertaking on my part. During the hunting season that is all I am focused on and put everything else on the back burner...we'd be in the woods and swamps often and training in the yard when we weren't. But during fishing season, I just don't know how motivated I'd be, not to mention my huge backlog of tasks that were put off during the season.
