Hi all, been a while since I've posted. Moved from Central Idaho to North Idaho and been pretty crazy. Anyway, took my two Red Setters Hoolie & Shooter to Eastern Montana to do some pheasant hunting. Got an invite from a friend who has a very well respected pointing lab kennel and a chance to see how these red dogs do in the field...I know I'm not completely objective, but I am honest....It was no contest! The red setter imho were far above in ability to find, scent, point, hold and believe it or not retrieve. My bud had along one of his dogs with a master hunter title on him and my shooter dog was right there with retrieves both land and water. Don't get me wrong, those labs are killer. My bud is a pro trainer and was pretty blown away as we had not only solid points, but also incredible retrieves! We all watched my Shooter dog track a downed and running rooster close to 150 yards, disappear over a creek bed and reappear and deliver the rooster to hand...Just amazing. Anyway, thought I'd report how our red dogs compare running side by side with some top dogs of other breeds.
