English Pointers

Recommended Posts

A freind of mine in Alabama, wants to give me a English pointer that will be born in early February. Would he be old enough to hunt by October. I have never had a pointer, so don't know if I should take on another dog. The price looks good. I have sen video's of them work. The parents of his dogs. What do you think. CAJ

The dog will be old enough to accompany you in the field, I wouldn't expect miracles with that young of a dog. Some pointing dogs come out of the womb trained, some take a season or two to really grasp the idea of what to do and how to handle game.

I hunted my English the first fall and he did ok. When he was 1.5 years old I also ran him in field trials and did very well. I would work with him all summer and get him on birds as soon as possible.

I am a big fan of pointers and my hunting has improved because of them. I've also been looking for some time now for a good English pointer. Would he happen to have any more coming for sale? I currently run a GSP and a lab together and have had great success on not loosing many birds. I hunted behind my first English in Kansas and really liked how they perform. Give me a shout back if he has any females left and maybe I can get in touch with him. Anyone else that has a line on English pointers please let me know.. SB

I have a pair of L/W males that I held onto from our fall breeding. They both are responding great to training. We will be selling these early summer after some more trianing. We are not breeding this spring due to a new kennel going up in April but will be breeding my female again this fall.

    • By the smaller size of the trees around it may be a Bob Cat. 
    • looks like one to me. on son inlaws trailcam. date not right. probably may or june. 
    • and a good hanging it was
    • There is no reason he should still be alive! I liked Maggie’s way of dealing with things...good ol’ fashion hanging!
    • Okogie and KBD are both healthy, but sit due to Thibs having his head in a dark place. I sure hope they get some playing time tonight. Looking at the minutes given to Butler, Rose, and Tolliver, I doubt they'll play for awhile.    Bummer, since they both had a good preseason. I can see Okogie developing into Butler 2.0 so why not play him while he can learn from 1.0?
    • Near that same area, I watched a guy from Pennsyvania hit a huge muley buck totally demolishing his truck.  His hunt was definetly ruined.  Consider yourself lucky. Good luck on the rest of your trip and continue keeping us up to date. 
    • It wouldn't be an elk hunting trip if something didn't break.  At least you got the vehicle damage out of the way early and made it to your hunting area.  Should be smooth sailing from here.     Don't forget to let your insurance company know of the accident.  
    • Bummer on the deer- that's a major hazard on these trips. I've been very lucky after several close calls (knock on wood) going out west.    Sounds great so far otherwise. Good luck and have a blast!
    • Nobody knows ice better than an Eskimo. Don't try to slip a foreign language into the conversation to muddy the water. 
    • We arrived to camp around noon. Got my first mulie buck around 2am just east miles city. Will need 2 new doors and a new service door on the trailer. We survived with minimal damage and continued on after getting the buck off the freeway. We dropped our gear and headed right out to start scouting! Made it to the first area I wanted to check and found a 5x5 with 18 cows and a spike. We backed out quickly and hopefully they will remain close for Saturday morning. We are headed back out in the morning to check a few other spots and then come back into town to enjoy a wonderful wild game feed put on by the city. My son is having the time of his life. Can’t believe the amount of wildlife he’s seen so far. Heading to bed after a long night and day of driving. Hopefully tomorrow brings more areas of opportunity.
