Not sure I can be of much help. I found a couple good breeders in MT and ID, but they didn't have any pups. I had to take what I could find, my wife was determined to get a puppy, and it would have been a huge fluff dog with zero hunting potential if I didn't move fast and beat her to the punch! Found ours in Tri Cities on http://www.gundogbreeders.com/

They've started letting us use a .22 for grouse again in Oregon so I can carry either carry my Buckmark or I've thought about getting a .22 conversion for my Kimber. That way I could also carry the .45 slide/mags in case I run into big kittys, grow ops, or tweakers.

I'd love to find a way to carry my rifle or bow during the season so that I can leave the camper on the truck and use the bike for getting to my access points.

Yeah, they let us use a 22 pistol on them too, but the little .410 rolls them pretty well out of the tops of the trees without having to wonder where any missed shots (or even the hit, the bullets always exit) landed.

Haven't worked out carrying a rifle to a jump off point around here, I'd probably just switch the contender to one of my rifle setups, (longer, rifle barrel in either 30-30 or 35Rem and buttstock) and sling it since it is so small and light vs a regular bolt gun. Or strap to my camel-bak, back pack.

I'm pretty sure I could work out a scabbard arrangement if given enough time and motivation to think about it. Hmm,....

Here's what I did: Kolpin gun Boot three-point mounted to the Gobi rack. Works great.

Hard case, even better than what I was thinking.

If it's not too much of a hijack I'd love to see how that mounts. I was thinking about one of the surf board racks for my bow in a hard case, but haven't looked into it too hard.
