    I don't have a dog of my own yet. I will be hunting over my buddies Wire-haired Pointing Griffon. 6 more months and she will be old enough to breed. Then I'll be getting one. That gives my wife time to get used to the idea.:D

    opening of grouse in MD, had my 10 month old DD "August", and a franchi AL48 20ga. The old 26" 12ga L.C. Smith stayed in the truck because it rained all morning. Only had one flush off in a distance though. Pup did great for his first time out in a grouse woods. Duck opening is next, and I know he loves water and retrieving.:sp :sp

    12 or 20 ga 870 with Charlie BLF, the pheasant finding machine she is a flushing lab.

    looking forward to her third season since she did such a great job last year.

    also will be hunting with my buddies 2 year old GSP male, it will be his first season the dog was adopted and is progressing nicly.

    my next dog will be a pointing lab, my good friend owns Hunter of Genasse, a GMP Lab she is amasing. A pointing lab seems to be the perfect dog for everything.

    Unless you hunt quail and chucker primarly they are the perfect dog.

    they do well on quial and chucker but they don't cover ground like a GSP or Setter and that is what you need often on quail.
