There are breeds of dog's that were developed for that very thing your asking. They are called a versatile breed of hunting dog. Two breeds that come to mind are German short hair pointers and the Brittany. I trained a Brittany years ago that done well on quail and pheasent. Done an excellent job retrieving ducks and geese. He was so good at hunting dead game I used him more than a few times to find deer that was lost from gun shot and bow wounds.Do you train/hunt your dog on multiple species...pheasant, duck, grouse?
