Widespread power outage August 28, 2011. Born September 2, 2011. She was Lucky to make it. Lucky moved to Wisconsin November 4, 2011 - where we always give turkeys a brake →→→

The weather Lucky endured so young has nothing to do with her drive, but she is wired as if it did. She hunts full bore all the time, just like her parents Buster and Shiloh. I hunted with her daddy Buster when he was 13 and he had the energy of a 3 year old. When the tailgate drops, these dogs are gone a 1/4 mile or more in a minute, at a steady lope. They routinely check back, unless they find turkeys, when they bark like mad. The last picture above right is Lucky at 3 months old December 2, 2011.

Lucky runs deep like the Gordon Setter, Pointer and Plott hound that she is. When she barks, she's found
the turkeys and is getting each and every one off the ground. A pleasure to hunt with and look at (click to enlarge).
