I have a young 2 year old male setter that I just could not find the time in the last year to work as much as I would have liked. He is a very sweet, loving dog. I have shot scaled quail over him in New Mexico last year. He has not had any real formal training, I have basically turned him loose on wild birds and let them be the teacher. I am willing to give him to a young hunter that will take very good care of him and hunt the hair off of him. He is great with my three boys age 12,4 &5. No aggression, gets along with other dogs, etc. He has all the right makings and I kept him from a litter I bred. I still own the mother who is a NFC/FC and good friend owns the father who is FC/NFC. I have just lost the fire after moving to texas and the whole lease hunting thing and this dog needs somebody to take him out and do what he is bred to do. I am not interested in selling him or trading him off, I just thought this may be an opportunity for a young man or young women to get into the sport that has given me so much joy over my life that otherwise may not be able to have a hunting dog. I put this in this section as I thought it may get seen more by upland hunters and I am not selling him, hopefully it doesn't need to get moved into another section. I will be selective on where he goes to make sure he is going into a good situation. I am located in north texas. His name is Bill. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

I'm just passing through really. I was transferred here for a two year project last year and will be headed back west in about a year. I have plenty of older dogs to keep me occupied on a few trips I take annually no matter where I am working Arizona, Colorado and South Dakota are the three main trips I take each year. Wasn't meaning to belittle the lease thing as I realize this is the standard practice here and I am really just a guest for a couple years. If I end Up keeping him that is fine also, just looking to give back to the sport and keep a youngster involved instead of sitting in front of a video game or out raising hell on the streets.

Top picture is him on a planted bird on a training session. Covey's gave him fits, just couldn't handle all the excitement as any young dog. He didn't have any problems on the singles. I have no doubt he will need a little tune up. He retrieved ok but my plan was to force fetch him as I do all of my dogs anyway but that did not happen. I also hunted him alone so there was no pressure from other dogs on the retrieve where any issues could show up. He is not 100% housebroke. He comes into the house a couple times a week and hangs out.

That is such a wonderful offer. I hope some young person takes you up on it.
My grandpa got me hooked on bird dogs at a very young age.

Hello and I am not young and I can offer your dog a very good home where he will be on birds often. I would also take you and your children out if you wanted to shoot some birds.

I have not had any takers on any young folks. I'm open to anybody interested if the situation is right.

I'm young (26) and have a young dog I hunt the crap out of already, and would love another. Unfortunately, I don't have a house and yard big enough for 2 dogs!

This would be a great deal for someone though.
