First I’m a Lab guy..I’m not that brave!
But hunted some years ago with a couple of guys that had “Red Settlers” which were what Irish Setters were supposed to be..
They were excellent at both finding birds and capable retrievers.
They are the result of dedicated people who have been able keep the breed alive as hunters.
Dogs are smaller..not as feathered ect as the stupid show dog type…
They Go buy the Red Setter name
