    My 8 month old Scapa getting his point on during a training session this evening. Still doesn’t have the discipline yet for deerstalking, but his training is progressing and he’s got strong instincts.

    He looks more like a speckled Jim than a speckled Scapa
    Does he always lift the same foot ?

    @rugerman yeah always lifts the same foot. Is that normal? Sometimes he will lock up without lifting a foot at all. In this instance he started out that way- could tell he was onto something by the way he froze and became so focussed. Then as he advanced a little closer he began pointing with the paw up. I let him guide me right across the park following it til he eventually got close enough to flush the bird. He worked his way in by just moving a metre or two and then returning to a point.

    Yeah mate since there is no such thing as normal, it's normal
    I've seen some that don't lift a foot, so it's the head and ears that are the main things to look for when he's seen something.
    Looks like he is going great, keep up the good work

    Yeah he seems to just indicate with head and tail while further away, and then brings in the paw lifting when he’s a bit closer. Cheers- he’s a work in progress but coming along nicely. First pup for me so it’s been a big learning curve. Just taking our time and trying to do things properly.

    Beas first indicated animal.
    I dont nprmally bother with goats but she did everything right. We came accross some Goats a little earlier. We watched them for a while but they must have got our wimd and scarpered. She was really good and didnt evem look like chasing them. She led me to this one a little later on so i decided to pull the trigger. Be good dog tucker i giess.
    She is meant tp be a Deer Dog so i hope shooting goats over her wont affect her working on Deer.
    Does it matter??

    I would think it would only be an issue if there are goats where you hunt deer.
