About Grouse Mountain Setters

Grouse Mountain Setters is Located in Cynthiana Kentucky and whelps only a couple of litters a year from my own hunted and proven upland dogs. My Llewellin Setters are 100% Llewellin with Henry Princeof Pause in their pedigree. My English Setters Have many Champions and Hall of Fame Dogs within their Pedigree. I am not a regular Breeder and only raise litters when I need a pup for myself and sell the remainders. The parents of these pups are hunted through out the season on wild upland birds in more than one state on a mixed bag of gamebirds and produce wonderful pups. I will not deny anyone the inspection of the Sire or Dam and their abilities. I will personally show you their hunting capabilities on birds. I have nothing to hide and understand that others want the same as I want and thats a quality dog.

I had an opportunity to get 6 quail from a nearby bird farm, though I was leery to do anything with live birds at this point I went a head and got them. I wanted to continue making it fun with no pressure at all. What I ended up doing was taking a single bird and planting it about a half mile into our daily walk, about 5 feet off the path. As we walked past the spot where the bird was planted Pilsner could obviously smell something that excited him, however was still clueless so to speak. I flushed the quail out and let him get a better look at it. He became very excited, and was all over the original spot where the bird had flushed now. I didn't want to over do it at that time so I just let him play around in the scent and continue being excited. The following day I did the same thing, but this time..He was all over the scent, locked and held his point for several minutes. after flushing we continued in the direction of the bird (they only tend to fly about 30 yards). Once again he caught the scent and held point. I have continued to do this a couple more times with the same result. I was very proud and had been telling friends and family about this. Just the other day I was with a few friends and wanted to show them how well he was doing. So I planted my last remaining quail about 400 yards from the house. We then went for a walk I wanted to circle around a little bit to get the wind in our face. At the exact moment the wind was blowing in our direction from the spot of the bird(still nearly 75 or so yards from the bird) he immediately caught the sent. He froze, lifted his nose to the air then straight to the ground leading us directly to the spot of the bird. Everyone couldn't believe it, they were very impressed. I was very proud, maybe this is not all that unusual, but for me its the first time I have ever seen this type of activity from a pup only 4 months old.

Hi Jimmy,

Don't know if you remember us, John & Mary Atwood. Bought Tucker, one of your pups. Justin our son made the initial down payment. Justin lives in MO. He was visiting over Thanksgiving. Took a few pictures of Tucker and Justin's dog Dugan we wanted to share. Dugan and Justin went quail huting this AM with John and Seth on our property in Petersburg, IL. They brought back a couple to put Tucker on the wing. It turned into Tucker's first retrieve.

Nicest person I even met. Very pleased with my dog and hope I will always be able to purchase from this individual. He is truely a hunter for hunters and not just a breeder but much more. Thanks Grouse Mountain for who and what you are. My pup is far more than I ever expected.

I actually would rate this experience as a 10 star, but there are only 5. Just can not say enough about this experience. I have hunted for 37 years and have to say that these dogs are outstanding. Jim does not always have pups and hunts the sire and dam on wild birds and often. You might have to wait a little while on a pup because this is no puppy mill and hunting comes first. The pups are far above anything I have ever seen, just goes to show how hunting stock can produce outstanding pups. Thanks for everything Grouse Mountain.

Thanks for such a wonderful pup. I never dreamed that when I purchased this pup I would be hunting it on wild birds it's first season. There was very little training or correcting needed. It started pointing it's very first bird and never stopped. I highly recommend you and thanks once again.
