Todd, Meg, Randy, Gerritt, Tim and Tyler, Upland Bird Hunt

Todd Goeb came out with a bunch of friends, Tim Guskey, Tyler Schroeder, Gerritt McCrory and Meg and Randy Hardtner for an all day upland bird hunt. Meg brought out her setter, Zoey and shorthair Jaeger for the morning hunt in the Clubhouse Field. After some lunch they headed out to the Clubhouse Field with Travis Devall and his trio of dogs. Really good late season hunt, with some nice quail rises.

Dan, Mike, Joe, Doug and Joe, Upland Bird Hunt

Dan Butler put together an all day upland bird hunt for his brother Joe, Mike Severe, Joe Hodge and Doug Carlson. Travis Devall got the morning duties of guiding in the Clubhouse Field. Even with the wet weather the birds flew nicely out of the sparse late spring cover. A bit of lunch and then over to the Cabin Field for the afternoon with Jeff Powell and his pups. Great way to end the season on a nice hunt.

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.
