Many moons ago I went duck hunting with a guide and some friends in eastern NC. The guide showed up with a poodle. We all kind of snickered, but damn, that dog was outstanding.
I was wondering if yall have ever hunted with one? Also, I was curious to know if any of yall know any local breeders.
I saw one at a field trial YEARS ago.. and the dog was STRONG.... i laughed and chuckled when I saw it... just damned glad my brown beast placed ahead of the poodle....2 guys I trained with finished had dogs - GOOD dogs finish behind the poodle... and I never let em hear the end of it.... it was bad enough a brown dog bested their dogs.. but a poodle...
there was a doctor at ochsner that had one a friend of mine in Nola helped train it.. and that dog... was pretty dog gone good.... all things considerd.
