Stormy got her name as a result of Storms the most important one being the Ash Wednesday snow storm she was born during. Eleven inch of snow fell at day, We had been having 70F plus temps for a couple weeks, we decided to go pick a pup out of the litter or not. Day was cold temp low 30F with wind chills in the high 20's, the day we went to bring her home it rained all the way down there and all the way home.


She is a Ryman Style English Setter. A very smart pup. Wife has been working with her since I had TKR surgery just days after her coming home. Loves to sneak up on robins and other birds. Pointed a wild hen turkey and a rabbit.

At 23 weeks she is sitting and waits to be released before going to her food dish to eat.

Al, that is one sweet looking kid. When you get a little better with that TKR (have had two) she'll be making you sweat off the pounds and build up those sliced up muscles.  What would we do without our dog pals!?

Be easy with her and  she'll love you forever.

I think she loves me now way she acts. Wife said rain put her in hunting mode this morning. Said she was casting in grass 50 inches tall or better all thru the walk.

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
