John Stolgitis's CH Panola Bacon.
Superb Grouse dog, multiple Champion on wild birds (at a young age), & better yet, Bacon is throwing awesome pups!
Depending on your dogs pedegree, he definitely should be considered.
John is in Rhode Island. I don't know how far that is from your location in Kentucky. I have a young one out of Bacon, probably the best that I've ever had. At 1 & 1/2 this last fall I was running her in wild bird Championships!! She came very close to winning in a couple. She's that good! A littermate sister, out of Bacon, won a Grouse CH this fall -again that's at a year & a half old!
Bacon pups are excelling, very bidable, extremely classy & most of all, they are tremendous bird finders.
I'd talk to John, if it was me.
