I can not go without mentioning my best hunting buddies Johnny and Dave. They must be Saints for still having a desire to hunt with me after the many hunting trips we have been on. There is truely nothing that can compare to having a Bird Dog that you can enjoy in the field and woods and great friends that share the same feeling. I am sure the same will hold true for my new found friend and Wisconsin resident Terry. I truely care about you guys and I thank you guys for all you have done for me and for being the friends that you are. Thanks again, God Bless you Guys !!!

Me and Johnny (a person I owe a lot to) after a day of Hunting and working the dogs.
Johnny with his Grandson Joe. Joe took his first hunting trip with us and we all enjoyed his company. It is great to see a young person become interested in this sport. Keep it up Joe!!!!!
This is a picture of Joe with what I believe was his first bird, but deffinately not his last. Joe actually killed more grouse on his first trip than the rest of us older guys. Way to go Joe.
Johnny, his son John and and my English Setter Doc.
John with his son Joe. (Johnny, John and Joe) 3 generations of bird hunting tradition. This is an example of this fine tradition being passed on. It is wonderful to see a youngster get involved in this sport.
Johnny's Setter on point.
And I am talking about the dog above not John setting on the box to the right between me and Dave.
Just Kiddin' John !!!
The Group of pictures above were provided by Frank Sutter. His Dog Angel was Bred to a Grouse Mountain Setters Stud Dog. This litter produced 10 pups. I Went to Franks to see the pups and had to leave with one for myself. I could not believe the actions of these pups and how outstanding they were at 6 weeks old. Both Parents are wonderful grouse dogs and one can only expect this great breeding to produce great pups.
Some would call it Puppy love.Grace does as she got to hold her puppy for the first time in the whelping room. It
is a 3 1/2 week old Male Chestnut Belton.
Above is a 30 Day old orange and white puppie and Blue Belton from Belle and Hank already pointing
While conditioning Sophie one early foggy morning she found a covey of wild quail and then found singles after the covey broke up.
To a loving new home!!
Enjoy the pup and
I appreciate you all.
right at home!!!
Grouse Camp 2011 in the North woods
of Wisconsin. This is when we can see the great dog work on wild birds, work young dogs on the elusive grouse, and sit around at night sharing great stories about wonderful dogs.
