Re: In need for some GSP puppy help.

Myself and sons do a lot of hunting in New Jersey for stocked birds and usually bag a decent amount of quail or pheasant over him everytime we go out, but they lost almost as much birds to floods and snow as we did :cry:

Re: In need for some GSP puppy help.

No problem and the reason I'm actually selling him is to pay for an English Pointer. Do you hunt a lot of grouse/woodcock with your pointers, or mainly stocked birds?

My young GSP is for sale, he's great with children and would be great any stocked birds/preserve or grouse/woodcock hunting your friend does. You can take a look at him in the Dogs for Sale classifieds. Thanks, James
