Flushing and Dogs
Flushing and dogs involve using noise, movement, or dogs to cause game to become nervous and leave cover. There are several breeds of dogs that can be used for hunting different game species.
Some dogs can be used to hunt several types of game animals.
- Pointers are used primarily for upland game birds.
- Retrievers are large, hearty dogs used primarily to retrieve waterfowl; they also can be trained to hunt other game birds.
- Spaniels are used mainly as flushers.
- Hunting hounds are used to hunt raccoons, rabbits, and coyotes.
