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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
