I had a papered pit that would run rabbits, tree coon with my hounds. She never really barked on trail but squealed with excitement.. Bad for rabbits cause she was generally very close. But she loved those coons. I did a less then steller job one night knocking a coon out of a tree and it was getting the best of my hound. Jess grabbed the coon and proceeded to throw the coon and my bluetick around like a rag doll for a minute or two... gOOD TIMES.

It would give me the heebie geebies, if I ever encountered a strange (unknown owner} pit bull in the field.

After doing some research on the internet about that breed, a saw some info about the pitbull being able to bird hunt. Just wanted to get some info from you guys. I already have him trained to retrieve toys and drop them in front of me.

Thanks
If the dog has the drive to hunt, the nose and isn't afraid of guns, it's totally possible. We have a 2 year old APBT who is a great "bird dog". We started with dummy birds, hiding them here and there. He has the nose for it and the drive. They will point also. One of their deadliest weapons is their tail lol.. it will be straight out when they're onto something. My husband had to retire his yellow lab, who was also a great bird hunting dog. When I got Junior, the pit, I could tell right away he had the drive for it. He actually retrieves better than our Retreiver and he's more gentle. As for other dogs out on the field, he could care less. He's there to do a job and that's all he cares about.
