I bought Grendel 4 years ago, he was a derby dog. An upland derby is a game in which quail are put out in the field and the dogs are released the first point/flush wins the derby. His first owner ended up having a stroke and that is how I ended up with Grendel. Grendel is a small English Setter, he weights about 31 lbs.
When I got Grendel Bill Oxner came down and hunted with me the first time with Grendel.
I started record keeping about 5 hunts after I had Grendel:
Grendel has hunted/pointed:
Number of Hunts: 171 (some of these are morning and afternoon counted separately)
Miles Ran: 2,900 Miles
Ave Miles per Hunt: 16.9 Miles/Hunt
Quail Shoot: 3,151
Pheasant Shoot: 2,491
Chukar Shoot: 641
Prairie Chicken 19
Grendel coughed up blood today and he is at the Vet's office tonight. I hope this was not his last hunt because this little guy has really done some hunting for my organization. Lots of happy Law Enforcement, Military and, Firefighter/EMTs because of Grendel.
