New Gun Dog Breed????????????

11 posts in this topic

About 9 weeks ago my english setter and beagle got together when we weren't watching....

Well now I have very interesting mixed breed pups. Both the setter and the beagle are great pheasant dogs. So I am wondering if I will now have pointing beagles? confused.gif

Here is a pic of one the pups and one of my setter. I dont have a pic of the beagle on here yet.

Classic! grin.gif

I can picture it now, a solid tail up point on a snowshoe hare while baying!!! grin.gif

My buddy used to hunt pheasant behind a Basset Hound. He was slow, but the birds never stood a chance.

Are you going to keep a pup to see how they turn out?

Good Luck!

Ken

Right now I plan on keeping one to see how it turns out.(The only problem I might have is that I live in town and all ready have 3 dogs) A couple of guys that have hunted with my dogs also are interested.

beagle + setter======== better

or

setter + beagle========= seagle

thats the two names people have called them when they saw them

I really think I might be on to something. I cant wait til they are old enough to try pointing at a wing on the string.

3 out of 5 of the pups are pointing the wing. They look more like setter than beagle. I will try and get a picture of one on point. (It will be hard becasue they hold it for a second or two, which isn't to bad for 6 weeks old)

Here is a pic from today of the beagle/setter at 6 months, this is the first time I have seen the pup since he left the litter in June. (he is the one from the first pic on this topic curled up in my lap)He points awesome and backs his father like a seasoned vet. I am really impressed with the young pup.

Sweet looking dog! I like how he has the longer setter legs. I think they turned out great looking. Sound like good hunters too.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
