The title of this book quotes its object. To tell something of night hunting, and especially to suggest how the ever necessary dog can best be selected, trained, maintained and utilized, is the consideration of first importance. To round out the subject all forms of hunting will receive some notice, and the various breeds of dogs will be so far dealt with, that their value and usefulness in their given fields may be determined. Best of all, the contents of this volume are based on the opinions and declarations of men who have had years of experience in the matters on which they presume to write.
A Historic Read on Antiquated Training
I enjoyed this book, learning about turn of the century methods for trailing and tracking raccoons, loving referred to as, ‘Mr.coon’ was a interesting take. I felt the strong points of this volume are in its history value as a anthology of different training methods. The author does recommend slow introduction, gentle introductions and praise as primary training methods. I thought these parts could be useful today. The text goes as far as to dissuade the use of whipping that may, ‘spoil the dog’, the author’s choice vernacular for stating that the dog may not preform well on a hunt due to these poor human made choices. As a historic read I enjoyed this book. As a dog owner this book was interesting.
Greatest thing I've ever read! 😍😍🎥📝📚📚📚
