I live on a rather remote farm in the wilds of Oglethorpe county. There is good hunting here for many game species, including ducks and occasional geese that come in to beavered up creek bottom marshes and a large old stock pond from when cattle were run here. There is decent dove shooting. The fields are leased to a farmer who plants sorgum,(for sale to bird seed companies), and winter wheat. There are wild quail here also, but not in great numbers. I don't plan to pressure them much, but I think they will be great to help me train my new companion and hunting partner, Tess. I am a long time hunter but new to upland hunting with a bird dog. It is something I have wanted to do for a very long time and I am finally getting started this year. I looked at and researched the many species of bird dogs and finally settled on the french brittany as the one I wanted to have as a companion and to hunt with. I will be welcoming Enchanteresse de Plum Creek, the name I chose for her and which I have shortened to Tess for her call name, in less than a month. You will be seeing us at club events and field trials in the not too distant future, I hope. I am looking forward to meeting you all. We will have a lot to learn. I'm hoping that some of you will be willing to help us, or at least tolerate us until we come up to speed. I wish you all the best.
