I have two Vizsla’s a male and female, they’ve been shot over since they were young. Brook the male very steady and laid back while River a female import from Hungary a very good little hunter but know where as patient when it comes to the ‘point’ over feather!
Here a small vid I made late last year which shows her impatience when working them together, really should be backing him up and ‘honouring’ his point on a Snipe!

Nice dogs Dave, she looks like she was backing for a certain length of time?

Still not working Tony. Your tiercel must have some horsepower to chase them down like that. Pretty impressive in itself.

Cheers,
Nick

Glorious opening with just the faintest breath of breeze for the dog. We were hoping for a woodcock but made do with another brace of snipe. Is there a better looking crop full for man or falcon than the common snipe?

No, got to agree Nick still amazes me today as they did years ago when I first started beating and working my dogs how beautiful these birds really are.
Beautiful in explosive flight and even more amazing close up as your pic shows.
Never tasted or eaten one though....

I suppose I’m more critical about them than need to be sometimes Nick!

They are good dogs and I love watching what comes naturally to them, it amazes me all their natural HPR instincts.

Here’s a vid of them just on a wet Sunday morning with the Mrs, walking around a local reservoir and bang here they go pointing on a load of brambles!!
But at least River, the little one honours him this time!!
It goes on a bit but watch her pop up out of the cover when all the action has gone!!!

Down on the pasture fields today, we worked a couple of fields hoping to get a point with the young setter. The snipe were very jumpy and were breaking before the dog was locking up on them. Walking into the third field just by the entrance the setter hit the deck, at last, Dewi started his climb pumping and circling above the dog as he was reaching 60, 70 meters in came a wild female, she came at him from underneath and her both talons could be seen coming out. Dewi evaded her and legged it, last signal was 119m altitude and 1.95km away so it was back to the car, after a short track down he was back on the cadge.

We drove to a fresh field, it was very boggy (could be hippos there somewhere) and a lot of rush in there. Gwp on point and Dewi in the air, only 40 odd meters this time ( not sure if the rush and a smaller field has anything to do with pitch, that's another topic) in goes Gwen out comes the snipe but doesn't go far before dumping , I could see it was the smaller Jack snipe so went in the opposite direction to find another point while the tiercel was in the air, a snipe broke from the rush bed and went streaking off down the slope heading for a strip of woodland the tiercel give chase in an angled stoop, I thought no chance but fair play for having a go. As the flight went over the woods we saw the tiercel wing over, the orange box said 370m -17 altitude so could be on the ground or in tree. Jogging down I saw a buzzard heading where the tiercel had gone so I put a spurt on eventually I found him on his snipe plucking away. The buzzard was in the next tree watching and when I clapped my hands he just jumped branch. I fed Dewi up on the glove and had a double helping of port from the hip flask as the apprentice forgot it last time. Again it's not how I'd like to catch them but some are in style and others are a dog fight so to speak.

pictures were n't up to much ,so here's the pick up.
Tony.
