This girl wont point planted birds but she is great on wild pheasants. Solid on point will move ahead when asked and a solid retriever.

Looking good!
I pity the man that has never been loved by a dog!

This is her brother Delio.
Cover is too light,we pointed-catwalked-pointed-catwalked...this bird for about 75 yards before it busted. He stalked a nice Rooster for about 125 yards before it finally flushed.
My area of S.Dak. is still flooded so its hard to really gauge bird numbers but what I have seen is promising.

Have always enjoyed the Weimaraner after growing up to stories of them and owning one. Thanks for the pics.

I'm in SoDak too, but out west. Our bird numbers have been pretty decent it seems. Tons of grouse too, more than I've ever seen.

I plan on getting out west after some sharptails.
Crops are really coming out so maybe get a real handle on the bird #'s soon.

Got out tonight,drove around checking on corn harvest adjacent to the public ground.

Found a recently harvested corn field near a fair gfp. 35° and a 12mph breeze,perfect. Wind out of the north so hunted to the south end and headed to a overgrown,weed infested,former foodplot.

Dog hit the corner and went on point. A rooster came out as I approached. As I dropped the bird a hen got up and headed the other direction. The dog stayed steady until he was sayisfied I wasnt going to shoot,then went to retrieve. As so often happens he marked a little short. Circled around out and back,and around some more. I stood silent and let him work.

After prob 30 seconds he took off on a path at almost a full run. Nose down and heck bent. Up the rise,along the ridge,and out of sight about 150 yards out. I just waited with all kinds of scenarios running thru my head. Less then a minute later he reappeared with his reward! "bleep" proud of that retrieve.

Hunted on a got another point but this bird busted early. I dropped it andhe made a good mark and speedy recover. Hunted a little further and he is stalking a runner. Bird held in some thick grass along side a 7 acre pond.

Now I am thinking maybe get a water retrieve? Kicked the bird out and sure enough over the water and parallel to the shore goes the bird. At about 30 yards I squeezes off a round just as the bird changed directions. A poor hit droppeda leg and plenty of feathers. I watched in dismay as the bird staryed to come down,trying to run on the water. Got airborne long enough to do the death dive.

Now I have a bird down a 100 yards our in ice water.Walked dog back to the truck and unloaded. Picked up some rocks,put on a winter coat and headed out to let the bird wash ashore. When the bird was about 15 yards out threw a rock and yelled fetch. Dog pranced around on shore caught wind of the bird and it was on. Great little short swim with no hesitation. Got me a "bleep" fine bird dog.
