Re: Real Bird Dogs and Garmins
Hard to come by back then too. I was lucky, just starting to field trial in the '60s when I did Gene Uhlman a favor scouting for him at the Freeland trial in the Amateur Shooting Dog. When he turned pro a later, he asked me if I wanted to buy one of his dogs to leave with him. I bought father and son, Counterdrive and Countercharge. What a pair, something like 175 wins between them, both RU Champions, Drive in the Nat. Am. Pheasant SD to Grouse Ridge Will and Charge in the Reg. 2 when he was still a derby - to Strawberry Fly, a great winning b###h of Nitchman's.
Sounds like your Setter b###h was a pretty doggone good one too. You have to love a dog that stands on point 'till they're found but that story is really amazing! I've lost 'em overnight mydamnself but they darn sure weren't pointing when I found them!
