Spent the afternoon afield with my son and our dog. Found five pheasant and bagged four of them. I'll take a day like this anytime!

Indeed! "Clark" is an 8 year old German Wirehaired Pointer. He was king of the roost around here (except for me of course) until last summer when I inflicted a young GWP puppy on him... It's pretty much derailed his regal life, as he's been the subject of constant attacks on his ears, his tail, his dignity...

But "Mary," now 8 months old, is a real hoot. I haven't had her hunting yet, but have had her out in the hills a lot. She seems to have what it takes to become a good hunting dog. The bar has been set high by ol' Clarkie.

Clark, happy as king of the hill here a year ago:


Clark being used as a chew toy by puppy Mary:


She looked so sweet and innocent last summer:


Now, she's nearly the same size as him, more energetic, and he grudgingly shares the couch with her...


The pair of them running up a snowmobile trail a couple of days ago. Clark in the lead. I was on snowshoes and sure couldn't keep up:


Clark though, is still top dog when it comes to hunting. Here we are in November, for pheasant. He's a pheasant, grouse and chukar hunting machine!


Praising him after a good retrieve:




Clark is the best dog I've ever owned, and has made me a better upland game hunter. I have high hopes for Mary next season!

Best hunting dog I ever had was a GSP.
She was a real hunter with 13 field champions in her pedigree.
You seem to have found the same Guy!

Guy, I grew up in the Columbia Basin we had 160 acres of farmland. Sure do miss all the pheasant hunting I did as a teenager. Medical problems have ended all my hunting unfortunately.
Miss the taste of fried pheasants one of my favorites as a kid.

Nothing like a good working dog, especially if it is a good family friend.

I had some really decent rabbit hounds and a raccoon hound or two when I was growing up on the farm, but they were outside dogs and frankly, not very civilized.

I usually had a pointer before I left home, but quail became scarce by the time my last bird dog was over the hill. After I got married, I hunted a good bit in N. Missouri and S. Dakota with my FIL and his Britney Spaniels. A good hunting dog is a real pleasure.
