In Search of the Perfect German Shorthair
S.D. Sharpies

S.D. Sharpies & Chickens 2011. A few shots from our 2011 Training Camp in S.D. on Prairie Chickens and Sharptails in the beautiful National Grasslands. We averaged in excess of 50 birds worked by the dogs per day and by weeks end, had bagged 30+ birds over solid dog work and I logged over 3000 miles of road time, probably close to 60 hours following Shorthairs doing what they do and I don't want to know how many mile walking on foot/riding horseback behind them.
