Old Hemlock

Tags: Old Hemlock, Setters, Gregg Barrow, George Bird Evans

My buddy Gregg Barrow has written a nice review of the video “Old Hemlock Setters: The George Bird Evans Legacy.” Gregg is a very experienced, all-around dog man with a heart to match his pro football player’s frame. When he talks or writes about dogs, I pay attention:

“The heritage and history that comes with an Old Hemlock Setter is a tremendous blessing, and no small responsibility. I have always believed that a breeder’s true strength is in his owners. You cannot keep them all nor would you want to. But Old Hemlock dogs are responsibly placed in the hands of people who understand the investment of time, sweat equity and the years of planning they represent.”

Read the entire review and enjoy the Old Hemlock website.

I read The Upland Shooting Life back in the early 1990s and never got over it. My thanks to Gregg for passing along the video and review. Enjoy!
