    If you want something a bit closer, Nobelle Kennels in NJ has Shooting Starr lines and produces great dogs.

    I would say Rugerheim Kennels, Terry Chandler. I've got one of his dogs and the dog and he are great.

    What kind of dog are you looking for? Big running high powered blood lines or a nice relaxed hunter. IMO avoid field trial lines.

    Smackerquacker,

    Why not a field trial bloodlines? I am just the opposite. All my dogs must come from field trial lines. A consumer must be able to judge merits of a dog. I used to hunt test my dogs and have witnessed "show" dogs that were able to pass and I wouldn't waste my money to feed some of them.

    Just because mom and dad came from a field trialing doesn't mean you have to train your dog to do that task. I have setters and they are great in the house and not like some hpyer does such as a springer.

    Just my opinion.

    What kind of hunting and what kind of cover will you be using the dog in? I would choose my breeding wisely. I have seen some shorthairs that run a little too big for my tastes. On the other hand I have seen some that are perfect for the foot hunter.

    Sell the lab and get your GSP:D

    Like Stonehenge said, decide what you want, close or far. I feel that the hunter will help determine how it runs but mine runs 100-200 yards regularly and I have tried to keep him close but just cant. Its in his blood to run FAAAR. Hes a big runner but ive seen some that dont go more than 30 yards too. I prefer the more open runners out hunting sharptails/sage grouse in big CRP fields/sage brush country
