YO GSP - How's hunting been in the Golden Triangle as of late? We grew up hunting I10 San Jacinto River area. Used to be clouds of birds - I don't see that up here.gsp said:love the GSP'S. I have 2. We live down on the Texas coast so cold is high 20's low 30's. I have had mine in this ,and found out it is no problem IF 1. you have your vest altered to fit (the vest are made for labs, find someone to custom fit) 2. Keep a bumper out and about every 30 minutes are so toss one and let the dog go get it. I have yet to see a duck flare from a dog swimming through the deks. More times than not they almost land on their heads. You have to keep the pup moving every 30 minutes are so. Living that far up north I would look into a DD. As much as I love my pups nothing competes with a lab in the extreme cold. I am considering getting one for that reason and they make great flushing dogs.
You should type GSP in the search box and sort through lots of threads of opinions and experiences at your leisure.CameronWyatt said:Looking to get my first dog this summer, im big into duck hunting and i want a good dog to hunt along with. I like labs and the way they hunt but i want something different, i have my eye on a gsp and im doubtful because everyone says they arent good duck hunting dogs. I really love the dog i just read good and bad things about their skills in cold waterfowl hunts.
