    What other breeds dogs do you folks use hunting other then hounds

    What other breeds of dogs do you folks hunt with for bear or cats or birds , that are not of the norm breeds for hunting but have proven to be good working dogs .....I have an American bulldog who's 7 months old lives to chase bears .. No fear in him at all loves to chase house cats to lol both his dad and uncle hunted boar and bears , I got him from a breeder...

    I've got a pp but almost went with a dd as you can literally do anything with them.

    Griffs are about as versatile as you can get, as well,,,,they point, they retrieve, love the water and don't freeze during the colder months, plus they track. When they're soaking wet it takes them a very short time to dry off. They are about the most social hunting dog as you can find. I really like their size,,,,,my female tips the scale at 48 pounds.

    I use her for upland. Trained to track and waterfowl but don't do much of it. Very similar to the griff above. The only reason I'd go with a pp over a griff is they have historically better testing scores.

    We have an OOOPs, (Springer/Golden) awesome little dog. A mutt from 2 health tested Field Champion bloodlines. Waterfowl and upland she works very well.

    Iv got a dog that the breeder said was a labradoodle. Hes red in color like a setter and has longer course hair.
    Dog has a nose like no lab iv had...hes a 1 1/2 now and is great at seeking it and flushing upland birds, still working on the retrieving part. So far two trips out with the gun this year and two pheasants.

    Border collies are pretty good at putting up bears and cats..as long as the handler sets them up
    Fool me once..your fault. Fool me twice my fault.
