With all the other hunters on state land, do your dogs sometimes get confused with the other dog handlers yelling commands to their dogs?
I am wondering if I should use commands in a different language.
When I used to hunt state land I would hunt the first 1/2 hour without my dog. After the hunters spread out then I would take her out. I lot less confusion for the dog. With birds flushing, guys shooting etc..
Also, I try to not call to the dog much. When you communicate with the dog and calling out to her she knows exactly where you are therefore they can get a little out of range. If you are quiet for the most part, the dog comes back to check on where you are and therefore hunts closer.
