I'm not familiar with this, but is this a scent type of dog that points in direction of Example pheasants or rabbit that are burrowed down?

What is a pointer dog used for?
A pointing breed is a type of gundog typically used in finding game. Gundogs are traditionally divided into three classes: retrievers, flushing dogs, and pointing breeds. The name pointer comes from the dog's instinct to point, by stopping and aiming its muzzle towards game.

You are correct, pointers are generally used for scenting and tracking game, and pointing at it when they locate it. They are wonderful high energy dogs that usually love to work. I have had the pleasure of hunting pheasants over a german short-haired pointer in real life a handful of times. It definitely made for an enjoyable experience!

German-shorthaired pointer,... yes... it gets close to the game then points with stance. It's a great bird dog!
But in theHunter game hunting dog types are not allowed to really hunt like they do because they consider it cheating in comps. The retriever is the only one that partially
does its hunting role to only retrieve.

Well sound like a real useful dog for bird hunting irl, but in game do we really need a dog to find and flush pheasants? now if this dog can find and point where a ptarmigan is hiding so i can get there with my shotgun and flush the bird... then that's something i would really love, because yes, i am really bad at finding ptarmigans. Now my question is, if after find the critter, it will also retrieve it once dead?

You'll have lots of time to give commands, you never shoot anything worth pointing at or retrieving. :lol: :lol:
