Hi all

new intro here names live up in the North West. Not new to hunting but have my first fully owned dog, others were mine/dad's ;-). Started him on mud crabs, then roos & turkey but am going to run him on a small sow soon.

Sorry technically challenged.
My names Bo, have a Bull Arab x something was to many dogs at the block unfortunately. He's names Jacks just turning 1yr on the 13/12/16 and 54kg but good strong runner with good stamina for a big dog and shirt fronts better than woosha in his prime...DSC_0163.JPG.9c424e1252d4d64cdca9ae4ae95

How did he go finding mud crabs? Did he grab them or just signal to you?

From about 10 weeks I'd take him to the water and walk and swim him. He just followed. Eventually running out and pull up at spots where a crab was and if it was small I'd keep going. Now he flicks them out with his mouth and front paws if he gets them in time and plays till I reach him. These are mud crabs, we can spear/hook them up here, so we walk for them.

Yeah the islands are awsome too. Probably passed you a few time then. Did you stop into djarindjin/lombardina or kooljiman while you were up? Bundy and Brian Lee are my Uncles
