Bobby, Nathan, Terry, Tom and Dennis, Pheasant and Chukar Hunt

Bobby and Nathan Touchette set up a pheasant and chukar hunt for their friends, Tom, Terry and Dennis Asher. Jeff Powell did the guiding for the big birds over at the milo and prairie strips over at the North Tinkerfarm Field. The fathers and sons had a great day in the field and harvested a pile of birds for dinner.

Setter Pup, Tough, Up for Auction

        This setter pup, Tough, will be going home with the highest bidder next Saturday.  The Cumberland Trail Chapter of the Quail and Upland Game Alliance, QUGA, banquet on September 29th at the Vandalia Moose Lodge.  

        Tough is a well-bred English Setter,  the dam is Homestead B (Ava’s daughter) and Roundabout. Tough is all white with a bit of orange on his head and ears.  He will be about 20 weeks old at auction.  Homestead B is the daughter of Ava, who has High-Test Skyhawk in her lineage.  Roundabout is a direct descendant of Shadow Oak Bo.  

       Tough was lucky enough to travel to North Dakota this summer and got some good experiences out west.  Since he has been back, Travis Devall has continued his training and it looks like he is coming along nicely.  Should be able to be in the field well before the season is half way through.

Jeff Marshall sold his litter mates for $600.   You have an extraordinary chance of getting an excellent hunting dog at a discounted price at the banquet.  

Terry, Jack and Roger, Pheasant and Quail Hunt

Terry Knebel set up a hunt for his buddies, Jack Levy and Roger Well. Terry brought out his experienced shorthair, Sadie and Roger his young lab, Timber to find some pheasant and quail covey in the Clubhouse Field. Always a lot of fun with Terry in the field, some nice dog work and some quality wingshooting as these three enjoy their last upland hunt of the season.

John and Burl, Quail Hunt

John Cavaletto came out with his pointer Burl to hunt some quail in the Clubhouse Field. I threw out a couple handfuls of quail off the tower in the field. The birds scatter around the field in random fashion and settle into their own spot of cover. Burl worked the field well, finding and pointing almost all the quail and John knocking them all down.

Chelsi, Brandon and Travis, Upland Bird Hunt

Chelsi Devall set up an upland bird hunt with her beau, Brandon Cox and father, Travis. I set out some pheasant, chukar and quail in the Clubhouse Field for Sadie, Zip and Patches to find. Great hunt, even with a little liquid, they came back with all their birds plus four extra pheasants left over from the youth hunt the day before.

Rich, Mark, Norval, Andy, Mark and David, Pheasant and Quail Hunt

Rich and Mark Reagan brought their friends, Mark and Andy Sugg, Norval Taliafero, and David Dintleman to hunt some pheasant and quail. I believe this was the first upland bird hunt for Mark Sugg and Norval and they had a great first hunt. Colton Wilkins along with Preacher and Bama did a nice job on the quail coveys and pheasant flushes.
