Just had to sign into facebook and check him out. Ya he's got a black head and few black spots on the body and the rest is white. The lady I'm getting him from said he was the first one to go check out the pheasant feather they put out for them. I took that as a hint. I think he'll be ready for pickup around the 17th of December.

this weekend we went out twice. set a total of 10 birds, and he found nine of them, 7 went to the freezer, one was a runner that eventually flew across the river, one had armor on, dad and I both missed. the other we have no idea what happened. anyway it was a good weekend, great time spent with dad and the pup. these days won't last forever.

Sounds like fun. You're right about not lasting forever. Just good to be out isnt it!

took the pup and dad out again this morning. released 8 birds, he ended up showing us 14 or 15. We were very happy with that, but, it seemed like anytime a rooster was involved he would work further out from us and harder. Then he would almost always flush them and give us no shot. Now the hens he would point just the way he should, and we got all of them. He has just turned 7 months old, another thing I noticed this morning was that his energy level is twice what is has been to date. Is it just being a puppy? or is there any habits here that need to be broke before they get worse? Thanks for the input guys.

Sounds to me like he is just being a puppy. The fact that he is seven months and doing what he is doing is sounding good to me. How steady is he on his point? Make sure he is holding a good point now, cause as he gets older and his drive for birds gets bigger, he will not want to hold the points as well. But if you get him holding steady while he is young, he will be easier to get to hold steady when he gets a little older. Sounds like your doing a good job. Have fun with him.

he will hold a point as long as I want him to. The part I can't seem to teach is to stay after the shot until I release him. any ideas?
