Hansam as a labowner outside of the US/UK thing I see it a bit different, afaik there has always been two hunting lines, the one you describe the american field line, but the brits have also have one that is abit fuller then the american but still not huge like many family/show bred lines
the uk version is always calmer imo, the american version seems very ADD
mine is a dual purpose, the breeder has got both hunting champs and show winners
and Brent, I have caught glimpses of the different hog huntin shows, it seems very common to just hogtie, I guess would be the correct term, the hogs
and not kill them on the spot why is that? doesn't this turn all the meat bad them stressing so much? being bit by dogs must already be doing that to right?
