    I think that I will still look for a ESS , I am not sure if I have the know how to train a pointer. Plus I have heard that ESS is a pheasant hunting machine. If anyone knows of any upcoming litters. I would like a female.

    They are made by God for pheasants. But it may be more of a truism to say they are bird-finding machines. The difficulty of hunting ruffed grouse with my springer is strictly do to my limitations, specifically walking through the woods without get slapped in the face by branches.

    I mostly hunt pheasant anyway and I have had no problems hunting grouse without a dog.

    Default Have you considered a rescue Spaniel?

    http://www.springerrescue.org/

    I have gone both routes, the high-dollar world-class pup of immaculate breeding, and the rescue route. I didn't go wrong either time. Saving a dog from the green needle is a feeling that never goes away. I put my rescue dog in the field with some pretty expensive dogs with snobby owners. He more than holds his own.

    Default Turkey Creek Kennels - American Brittany's

    I have owned American Brittany's and German Short Hair's. I have found the Brittany's to be a great family pet and very trainable for the house and in the field.

    Best Wishes on your search for the correct hound.

    Check out my website. I raise goldens. My females are around 45-50 pounds. Small but full of drive. Great around the house. Love to hunt pheasants. Just great dogs. I always say you hunt for about 3-4 months of the year, you have to like the dog the rest of the time! I am also local. I live in Minnesota.
