My advice to people wanting a hunting dog is to locate and buy a trained or mostly trained dog. If you have no one to help and have no experience it usually works out best for you and the dog. Figure it this way if you start out with a pup and it takes a year or 2 to find out he isn't going to work you are out all the time and money. A trained dog can train you too. Many times breeders / trainers end up with extra dogs that don't meet their standards for breeding and will let them go. Good luck which ever way you choose to go.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey
