Flushing Dogs - Mattie the English Springer Spaniel

Mattie is my first flushing dog, and I named her after Mattie Ross from True Grit. I got her last year, and prior to that time, I had always hunted with pointing breeds. My opinion of flushers was not very good back then, because I thought that flushers just "busted" birds all over the field. Wow, has my opinion ever changed. If you've never hunted with a flushing dog, please keep an open mind and give it a try. I can't think of much I'd rather do than hunt quail with Mattie.

I hunted quail with an old fellow years ago who used pointers but always kept a spaniel at his heals. The pointers were machines, they pointers weren't friendly, they just wanted to hunt. The spaniel was a great companion. The old guy had a challenge breaking him from flushing birds though.

You know, I guess that's why I have such an attachment to this dog. She's not just a huntin' machine, but she's also one of our pets, and she's great in the house.

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
