I've been a GSP guy - nice dogs and basically instant bird dogs with some basic obedience. Thought about wirehairs or drahthaars too but keep coming back to gsps. Friendly dogs too - maybe a little wound up...how about you - what's your breed of choice and why? Also, what do you mainly hunt? We're pheasant chasers 80% of the time with some waterfowl and grouse thrown in for variety. Looking forward to hearing about them dogs!
