Curious, Did you spay Lena or is she open? She sure is a good looking dog in addition to being talented and easily trained.

She's fixed.

Not that I know squat about breeding dogs, but that was possible a mistake.

Pretty sure I am going to add a dog to the pack this coming late winter/early spring and thinking I will give a female a try, which will be a first for me. My hesitation is I have no desire to raise puppies or deal with a heat cycles, but also have my standard objective of starting with the best available genetics and turning out an extremely talented and enjoyable dog. Kind of nags at me to squander those genetics if the pup turns out as well as we all hope going in but I can get over it pretty easy. Not like it is a risk free proposition to breed a bitch either.

Congrats on all of your accomplishments. You started with a great dog, and you worked hard to reach the level that you are at. Heather produced many great pups, and I feel grateful to have been lucky enough to have Lena's brother. I am not really interested in testing, but I have hunted Butch 20-30 days every fall, and he has developed into an amazing upland dog. Hugh actually e-mailed me on Friday to check up on Butch, I am not sure if he is still running a kennel, but a new kennel has started up in Saskatchewan , and I am looking forward to seeing how Nella's pups turn out.

Ducks and pheasants from ND. Well, mostly just pheasants. Waterfowl was tough...water everywhere with lots of ducks but hard to find concentrations.

Pheasants were plentiful and they really played along. Lena did a lot of great work, but still got fooled by some old smart birds. Honestly, that's what makes it fun.

This was my first trial with the 28 gauge and my handloads. Couldn't be happier. This load just plain stones them. Furthest shot was all of 40 yards, and it dropped dead. Time to load some more.

I enjoy hunting alone, but having a good friend along during that last hour of light is something special.

As are the meals!

With the amount out burrs she picked up this trip, you could convince me that her Pa was wandering Griff.

This is a duplex load with #3 steel and #9 TSS18. Duplex loads get mixed reviews, but I can't argue with these results.

Speaking of squandering genetics, has Male been bred?

jlw034, Slaying the roosters on the prairie over points using a 28 gauge. Nice! That 9 shot TSS 18g is amazing stuff and changes everything in terms of gauge and loads.

JT2, Between his Sire/Dam/Grandsire there is alot of Spud's genetics around in the hands of the real Breeders. He has a UT1, one NAHRA Pass and hips, elbows and thyroid health clearances but I have never promoted him for breeding. I'm just a Hunter who loves following a good dog to birds.

Is no. 9 TSS the same size as no. 9 lead? I’ve shot 9 lead for skeet, didn’t think much of it. Yea, it broke targets but not with the authority of larger shot. What velocity you getting from your loads?
