It’s some of the most fun you can have outdoors.  I like pointing dogs, personally. My first dog was a Lab; at the time I got him, I was heavy into waterfowl hunting. And who doesn’t like a Lab? But as I evolved as a sportsman, I gravitated toward upland birds and it was only natural to switch to a pointing dog.
