So don't get the wrong idea with what I am about to ask. I am curious if anyone who has a good grouse hunting dog (upland game dog) would be willing to take me out and hunt over your dog, or even watch you hunt over your dog. I have never hunted birds over a dog ever! The reason I ask is we will be getting a dog for our family (6 boys, me and the ms.) in the future and I am pushing against my wife for a game dog. Since I pretty much thus far only hunt grouse and freakin love it, I am doing some learning on upland game breeds and would like some first hand experience. Its a long question and easily perceived a million ways I am sure but please pm me if interested and we can work something out to be sure. Seems to me in my search thus far that the setters and spaniels are the best for grouse with the English Setter being probably the #1.
