On Sunday Bullett finished his FC at the San Antonio GSP Club trial. He did it the hardest way possible in that all of his points came in Major adult stakes.
He also did so impressively by winning in 5 of the last six trials I ran him in and did so under different judges even in different stakes. He even won back to back three point retrieving majors over the last two weekends.
Here's a real short Bio on Bullett:
For his first five years Bullett was my number one “go to bird finder” when the chips were down, while guiding wild bird hunts, no matter what species we were after or state we were in. By the time he was four he'd mastered every species of upland bird from Texas to Washington State. I can't count the coveys and singles he pointed nor the retrieves to hand which were well over four thousand before I ever saw my first field trial.
He was nearly six before I broke him steady to wing and shot (always let him break on the rise) and he finished his FC in under four years with all of his placements coming in adult "major" stakes. He accumulated 12 championship points by winning four of 6 trials over a 10 month period from Feb14 08-Jan 24 09.
The good Lord blesses a man very rarely as he has me with such great friends and mentors and such a fine dog.
He'll be 9 in May and gets better every time we put him on the ground.CR
Nice work Charlie!!
Nothing shameless about it. Congratulations on a wonderful job with your dog and a spectacular dog.
Here's a link to his pedigree. He's a son of FC/NFC/Rincon's Slick Willy. Lots of Rusty on the Dam Side.
You're right, very smart, very natural birddog with a full choke nose. Roy Yamamoto bred him, I was luck enough to stumble on to him and he's made me look like a pretty smart guy.
Best thing about him though is that he produces even better than himself. All of his offspring we've trialed at any level have placed, and most have won.
I have some young dogs that will be making their FT Debut this spring that are really something special.
Hopefully there's still lots more to come.
