That video shows a nice solid scent point. The dog was even chewing scent. Period. From the proud owner of a class fdsb pointer. But dMn let that dog alone lol.

Does indeed show a solid point, however, the point was if the Lab had been hunting with a good Pointer or Setter the ground would have already been covered. The bird already pointed.

Bust thru nasty cover and flush running Wild Pheasants, I'd take a Lab. Point Quail and Ruffed Grouse a pointing dog.

Any pointing Lab yet to win any of the serious pointing field championships? Even if one was great at the pointing part, it couldn't keep up when it comes to covering ground. Shotputters don't win the marathon. That was a young Dog and he was quickly sucking wind on easy ground. He isn't built for hunting fast and hard for any extended period of time.

A good Springer would also run that Lab into the ground and flush the Birds before he/she had a chance to do any pointing.
