      To the Guests who have decided to register for Membership. PLEASE add more info than just  "hunting" or "Upland hunting" or "birds" or "outdoors" or similar nebulous terms in the required INTERESTS field. Despite this Boards strong spam filtering it is not bullet proof, so Spam registrations do sneak through. I need an inkling that you are a warm blooded human being not a Spam Bot tagging onto key words. Thank you.

Thank you all for looking at the dogs and listening to our tale. They are indeed, fine companions if you hunt, great competitors if you trial and most of all, eager to play whatever your game-- and win. I had my "once in a lifetime" dog, Finn McCool and he was an exceptional hunter. He loved working pheasants and had a prey drive with no tomorrow. If she pointed a bird and I missed my shot-- he'd watch the bird go, turn and tell me what (in no uncertain terms) before taking off after that pheasant. Almost every time he'd bring it back. I'm not sure how he could stand me but he was pretty much guaranteed to bring home dinner.

Here he is with dinner. I'd love to say I shot this bird but in THIS case-- he tracked it down and did the job himself

Finally, just a shot of us talking. I probably apologized for my ineptness. After I had shingles I had to give up hunting. My hand, sometimes has a "mind of it's own" and I didn't want to kill my dog or husband.

Again-- thanks for looking.
