A little about you...

Hello, my name is Marcus and I live in North Fort Worth. I am 42 years old and have spent the last 18 years in the US Navy. I grew up hunting wild pheasants in Northern California, back when you could find birds there. Always had springers as a kid, the were just never trained beyond what they did naturally. I now have a 15 month old FBECS and she is fantastic. While I am certainly a novice trainer and probably the dogs biggest limitation, her desire and instincts continue to amaze me. Have had some great assistance from a local Spaniel club and look forward to continuing to learn and working to develop my dog. Thank you for including me in this group.

My name is Vince and I am from Alvinston Ontario Canada and currently the Property Manager for a mid size municipality. I am in my eary 50's and have been hunting on and off for the last 40 plus years. I have been happily married for 30 years and have three grown children . I have had a variety of working dogs over the years that included, Labs, Irish Setter and 21 working Siberian Huskies that i trained for recreational sledding and later to compete in dog sled racing. Most recently have switched over to UK working Labrador Retrievers(breeding), English Springer Spaniel and a new addition in the spring of 2019 a UK working English Cocker Spaniel. I do not compete in field trials but I train as if I do because of my competative nature. I am always looking for new training methods or improving on past methods and focus on building a strong bond with my working dogs. My hunting companions are family members first and live in our home. I enjoy pheasant hunting, rabbit, grouse, duck, goose, pigeon and turkey hunting.

I am 65 years old and will purchase a French Brittany pup in June, 2019. Back in the early 1970's I had an English Pointer that I later sold to be a field trial dog. Then I purchased a GSP named 'Shot' that I really, really enjoyed. I trained Shot myself on wild pheasants in Central Illinois. Shot was very steady to point, but paid no attention to a downed bird. I want to train my own French Brittany on wild birds and teach her to retrieve. I want to hunt, Sharptail, Ruff Grouse and pheasants. I am a soybean breeder in North Dakota. I am married and have 3 step-sons and 3 grandsons. I have learned a lot from this forum and purchased 'Perfect Start' DVD as well as a Jeremy Moore video on obedience training for a puppy.

Hello GDF! New member here. Long time big game hunter who did some upland game hunting decades ago, but now I am getting back into birds. I'm looking to getting into hunting Chukar and grouse, which are the most common birds in my area. I might do some waterfowl hunting later on.

How old are you?? Late 30's... I feel old answering this.
Male or Female?? male
What do you do for a living?? At the moment I'm in the military hanging out in Afghanistan. I will eventually be back home being a self employed engineer.
How long you been hunting/shooting?? 30 years
What kind of hunting do you do?? Right now only elk, but trying to get into Chukar and grouse.
What kind of dog(s) do you have?? None right now, but I will likely be purchasing a German Shorthair Pointer.
How long have you had dogs?? I grew up with Brittanies and doing field trials, however I absolutely will NOT be doing that at first.
You into any field trials, show, competition or anything like this?? NO!

My name is Stephen, I’m 45 and live in Long Island,NY. I’ve been hunting upland,waterfowl and big game for 30 years. I’m currently engaged to be married this February. I am a waterfowl and Whitetail hunting guide during the winter and a charter boat Capt during the summer in Montauk. I had 3 Labs that were FT dogs. I will be picking up my new GSP next Saturday and gonna get into the pointing dog games now. I’ll also be using him as one of our guide dogs for our preserve hunts. My hobbies used to be hunting but with being a guide I honestly don’t really get to do to much hunting for fun anymore. I’ll usually book a hunt out in the mid west for deer with an outfitter that we swap hunts with. Absolutely love that I found this site

Hello All...
51 year old family man, lifetime sportsman, I grew up back east (Pennsylvania) and moved west in 1998. I've lived all over the west Wyo, CO, MT and WA. Formerly a licensed outfitter in the state of Wyo. I've not had a bird dog for over 18 years and to be honest I miss it. Growing up back east when there was still good hunting if you had a good dog - all the tradition and camaraderie is forever engrained in me. With my recent acceptance of a position in ND, this seemed like a sign. So I'm all in on a search for our family bird dog. This placed seemed like the place to be... so here I am...
