English Cockers

3 posts in this topic

How often can you find field bred english cockers for $500? They certainly aren't that numerous where I'm at. Here it's GSPs, labs and springers.

They are available. You will probably buying from a hobby breeder vs. a Cocker kennel.

I was fortunate enough to buy a field bred American Cocker from a gentleman in Pennsylvania for $500. Most of these pups are in the $1200-$1500 range. I was set to get a pup from a breeding that was slated at $1500 but the breeding did not take. Start a search and see where it leads you. I got lucky and found this pup after the original breeding failed and started calling other kennels I had previously contacted and one of them turned me onto these dogs...

Good Luck!

This lady and her husband have been breeding Cockers for 3 yrs. She works at the vets office. I believe the grandparents were hunters but not the mother. I just have to pull the trigger. Not sure I've got the 500 bones, let alone 1000 or 1500. I'll never be the guy that spent 1500 on a dog. That's just not me. Maybe if I hit the powerball!

    • Here ya go. Freeking cell phones!  He's a dandy!
    • OK, I will defer to you since you know.  I figured since your picture was ignored that somehow that wasn't the right one.   So I took a whack at it.    Maybe next time.....
    • Returning to "crooked Hillary"   saw this on CNN site...    
    • Go straight to a farmer. 56 pounds per bushel of corn. Under $3 per bushel right now.  
    • Beautiful, congratulations archerysniper. 
    • I am not sure if it is purely higher deer numbers.  But we certainly have higher hunter density per deer.   Add on top of that, we have a less selective tradition in Minnesota.  Hunters here are less likely to pass small bucks than many other states.  Right or wrong I personally don't care what others chose to shoot it Thier hunt. I too, felt the same way as you about being able to shot one with each license.  Overtime I came to change my mind, I just don't believe it would be wise.
    • Not sure why it's upside down,if I have time I will play with it tomorrow. 
    • This Jim?  Labrador Tea and wintergreen berry below.
    • I can't believe any one of these people were baiting but Fleet in Brainerd must have sold 3 pallets worth just today.  I'm sure there just doing it to help the herd get fat before the winter..
    • Iv'e patterned alot of different shells , cut them apart ect. I shoot an extended choke tube ALL the time, it's either a miss or dead, and the biggest thing is shoot them within 35 yards, in the decoys, let the fringe and passing birds go and it won't matter what shell your shooting, I shoot 2's all the time for ducks and geese, 3's if only ducks. I have found that the dimpled and imperfect shot still kills them dead if you shoot a tight choke and within 35 yards. Blindside patterend really good out of my gun with a Drake Killer choke tube and number 3's , killed geese really dead but not worth the money if your letting the birds get where they should be when calling the shot. I like the challenge of getting them feet down and seeing there rear end pucker when the blind doors open.
