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.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
