I'm a first-time bird dogger who was fortunate enough to acquire a 3 year-old Drahthaar this spring. He's been a great dog and I've never had more fun in my 18 years of bird hunting. However, I've noticed a difference in his ability to hunt grouse vs. chukar. When grouse hunting, he really struggles to pin down the bird and give a solid point before the bird flushes. I'll notice him get birdy and start working much slower as he picks up scent, but he seems to have a difficult time figuring out exactly where the bird is. Almost every time, he'll bump the bird as he is working around. I've yet to get a solid point on grouse even though I've been able to get him on at least 30 or 40 birds this year. On the flip side however, when hunting chukar he is able to pin the birds with ease and give rock solid points virtually every time. He seems to pick up scent at greater distances and is incredible to watch work (granted, the wind has been pretty favorable while chukar hunting). He's better than I ever could have dreamed of in the chukar hills. So my question is, do you guys notice a difference in your dog's ability to hunt grouse vs. chukar? And what sort of tips could you give me to improve his ability to pin down grouse?
