>My retired Delta pilot friend, Mark Kastler, and I headed back out to Kansas last Thursday and Friday to pay gentleman Bob our respect. We were fortunate enough to stay at my gracious client’s house in NC Kansas and headed out from there. I love those small towns in Kansas. The people are pleasant…I enjoy kicking the dirt with them. The weather was different…fog and ice storms and snow all in the mix. But gentleman Bob was home and very willing to play with the dogs and us. I love chasing Bobwhite Quail with pointing dogs! If I had to choose only one bird to chase with my dogs, they would be it! My setter, Grouse River Gretchen, is 1 & 1/2 years old now, and she’s really becoming a fun dog to chase birds with. I’m convinced that wild birds make good bird dogs!
