Mine are pretty much Cedarwoods by way of other breeders. Oldest one is from Hardtrigger Kennel (he is a phenomenal upland dog) and youngest one is from Haydevil Kennel. Both dames of these kennels were Cedarwoods dogs and sire of the oldest was Cal Valleys Ace which was the other Pudelpointer group that stayed with the German breeding standards.

Haven’t decided what our next dog will be. The GSP’s shed a lot compared to the Pudelpointer and my wife likes the idea of a Small Munsterlander. I always wanted a GWP and the Pudelpointer has a good chance to get picked again too. I’ll probably just make a lot of phone calls to see what breedings are happening when the time comes.

A little background for the pudelpointer...
Was breed in Germany starting before the war....a hunting farm....Winterhelt was the game master at the farm...war came and they buried all their shotguns and rifles in the woods so the Nazis wouldn't find them....after the war..Bodo Winterhelt was encouraged by his father to leave Germany...so he came to US via Canada.......
After getting some dogs over here and showing people what they could do he started working at hunts clubs in various areas....he was offered some lucrative deals...
One for some desert country..which was later named Las Vegas...the offer was from Bing Crosby....Bodo turned down that area..to dry for the dogs....Bing also offered Bodo anotber situation....the Catalina Island....Bodo didn't want fo be so isolated....
Another offer came thru connections....guy offered him 25000 acres....which was all along a really nice river valley...now known as Bend Oregon....Bodo turned it down too.....
You have fo remember this is around 1960 or so.."been a long time since I was told this story"...
So he finally accepted a place...in California...just north of Los Angeles....where he trained and hunted his dogs for a long time.....after growing tired of that area...he packed up and moved to a smallish town on the Oregon coast...where he trained dogs and owners to be for several years..before suffering a severe stroke........Bandon Oregon...this is where I met Bodo.....did some work for him on his training facility and built a "birdhouse" for him.....even had time to b's him...and learn a little of his life story......great guy...he was even able to teach me a few things.......
From what I understood...he retained 'all breeding right's of his pudelpointers....which some have broken with.....
Beautiful dogs......hunters heart.....

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
