    Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

    Highly recommend Stubborn Ass Kennel in Winthrop if looking for a pup. Chris is great to deal with and the pups are well introduced to noise and people as well as sharp looking dogs.

    Steel Shot

    Steel shot is way high along with everything thing else. If you are even lucky to find it. I'm not seeing any breaks in the future pricing or quantity either. The Corona tail is still wagging hard along with the current leadership.

    Getting on pheasants during the summer?

    We have a griffon 3 month pup that we take to mowed trails on the edge of CRP fields towards evening. It's hit or miss, maybe 50% for us right now of flushing or I should say seeing birds. We flushed a hen and 10 chicks last weekend along a trail, the chics took full flight and all flew over 100...

    Gun fire conditioning alone

    I take my pups to the field, when they see or point or flush i fire dummy launcher, 22. I also pop a lot of bubble wrap during play times only 8 to 14 weeks. Happy times equals loud pops. I have trained 6 this way by the time they are 7 to 8 months.

    Is that so?

    Pheasant hunting and guns are both freedoms that are and will be threatened more in the future. Just ignore it, don't talk about it or it will never happen attitude will just speed up the process. This issue isn't important to the sport I guess.

    We have a German Wirehair We bathe Ruger in the off season typically once every 3 weeks when coat looks greasy/dirty, sometimes dailey when he roles is stinky stuff or takes a dip in the pond. Hunting season depends on how muddy it is and what critters he runs into or roles on. A fresh snow...

    I have to push my German wirehair off our front deck to take a wiz because he is typically on point on some sort of bird. Good bird dogs are happy with any type of bird hunting and adapt naturally.

    Rest easy my friend, a tribute to Wyatt

    I shed tears the 3 times I've lost mine, especially the 1st. It's like pulling a big piece of bark off of you. I don't waste anytime on getting a pup though, best remedy for the pain.
