Some guys control the dog and force it to go where they think their are birds.

Some guys chase after thier dogs trying to locate them on a point in the next county.

Some guys stay behind their dogs and let them hunt just using enough control to keep the dog within a good walking range.

I feel the statement is a great one! To me it is a reminder that the dog has the nose and the hunter doesn't. You dont see the dog telling you how and when to shoot do you?
