If you think that John's resurrected Parker is nice, you should see his dog he hunts over. Pointing yellow lab named Buck. Fine dog hunting for a fine man with a fine gun. Now I have to get out of here because I cannot afford to be here.

Rob - Welcome!

There are entry level Parkers readily available. That's how we all started on this journey.

Default Still, he is a Parker man

Thank you Rob!

Rob guides and trains out of South Fork Hunting Preserve near Royston, Ga. He has been helping me train Buck for the past 2 seasons, and we will be connecting again the coming season. He has been great at bringing Buck along, in spite of me. When Buck instinctively went on point with the first set of quail they put out, Rob jumped on that as something to develop. He understands training for the joy of a hunting companion instead of an intense trial competitor. Makes for easy going, enjoying-the-pleasure-of-the-hunt outings, where part of the pleasure is the dog enjoying his natural instincts without big pressure. Yet, meanwhile, he helps the dog develop deeper skills as we go; and he keeps training me. Buck has fun too!

Rob:"Now I have to get out of here because I cannot afford to be here."

Now, don't let him out of here too easily. He hunts with, I think, what was his mother's Parker. He will have to tell you what model and year. But he knows his guns. I guess he sees some of everything shot by his clients. It was sitting around with him and a fellow, who had an L C Smith, after a training hunt, talking about their guns, when I lamented the poor fate my gun suffered before my dad found it rusting away in an attic of a house he bought, that they got me turned on to the possibility of restoring my gun. So Rob gets some credit for my gun getting restored. The other guy mentioned Turnbull, but Rob said there were other quality gunsmiths closer to Georgia that I could show it to for advice on possibilities. That led me here, which led me to Bill Schwarz.

Rob deserves to be here!

Dean, thank you for the warm welcome. I just posted a whopper story called "A Tragic Story With a Happy Ending" in the new people section.

John, Thank you also for the recognition. You can't imagine how much I'm looking forward to cooler temps when we can run dogs and miss birds!

Dittos. Got to work on rustling up some low pressure 2 1/2's so I can get some pictures of "Lazareth" (courtesy of Todd Allen) shooting (or ME missing) birds for Richard Flanders.
