    I didn't mean the birds so much , I was just envious of that space that can let a big running setter move out.

    The reason why I like my dog to work within the space we have.

    finfurfeathers, a competent bird dog adjusts to the terrain, regardless of which province they enhabit.

    Ugo, a competent bird dog can be enjoyed without leaving the province.

    Fin, allow me to be more clear. A competent bird dog should adjust to the terrain rather than the location even within a given province.
    A pointing dog that works too close will cost you more wild birds than one that works too far.
    Another contributing factor is pace. The slow, methodical, working pointing dog will also be less productive on savvy wild birds not to mention less attractive to hunt over.
    The decider can often be the species. Stupid pen-raised birds will be much more forgiving of a close working pointing dog. So are some grouse in northern Ontario that haven't had much hunting pressure. Some grouse flush the moment they hear a hunter approaching in the distance. Others flush when a dog gets too close then they fly up and sit on a tree branch. Both of these types of grouse reside in Ontario.
