we hunt partridge in the fall, the picture below was the first time we ever took a dog with us. As you can see she was just a pup at the time and didn't hunt, more justing running around enjoying herself.
below is a picture of my hunt camp and hunting grounds
Oregon has some pretty good bird hunting. The problem is, the really good hunting is in the eastern part of the state and I live in the central part 3 to 4 hours away. I have a GSP and hunt quail more than anything else.
Chucker and Huns mostly in the high country desert of Oregon and Washington behind English Pointers and short hair pointers. Many times on horse back. That country is very open so you need your dogs to run wide and far. Many times 300-600 yards out. Horse back is the best way to keep up with your dog. Dog's on point with drewl running down. Ride up from behind, ground tie your horse, pull your shotgun from the scabbard and let the fun begin. You gathers the birds from your dog's retrieve, birds in the saddle bags and off for the next find. Three guys on horse back and one or two dogs means 8-16 birds in a few hours. Change dogs after lunch and go again. Great fun
