  GORDON SETTERS    HUNTING DOGS    UPLAND GAME BIRDS   HOME    


English and Gordon Setters have been bred over many generations to hunt upland game  birds.
Our objective is to produce the most responsive and versatile hunting companion possible for the North American hunter.  A dog, which is a combination of a good friend, bird dog, and retriever.  This is attained by using only those dogs, which demonstrate the highest qualities of conformation, temperament and performance.
From an early age, our puppies are in contact with Bobwhite Quail and Coturnix on a regular basis.   We annually raise a few hundred quail just for the training and evaluation of our puppies and adult dogs.  By the time our puppies are 8-12 weeks old they have been in daily contact with birds on walks in our fields.  This lets us evaluate not only the individual puppies but also reassures us that our breeding program is successfully incorporating the performance aspect of the breeds that we specialize in, English and Gordon Setters.
 Not only do we have fun with our puppies but we are also avid upland bird hunters.  Our wild bird season for Ruffed Grouse and Hungarian Partridge runs from the start of September to the end of November.  Our Pheasant season runs from mid October to the middle of November and our Sharptail Grouse season is from the start of October to the end of October.  During this three month time period our  dogs log about 40-50 days hunting wild birds.



  When hunting season comes around, you will see many excited dogs waiting for Les to pick up his shotgun and to put on his hunting jacket and their blaze orange collars, because once that happens........

"THEY KNOW,  ITS THE REAL THING" GROUSE OR PHEASANT SEASON IS HERE!
