Jim , Where did you get your Drathaar ? DId you have to get a bank loan to get one ? Are you planning on keeping it up with the field tests an trials to keep its Title as a Drahthaar ? There's a falconer here selling one that's about a yr old ...

Scott, I'm actually getting 2 of them, one for me and one for my long time friend/hunting buddy. One of the pups is coming from IA and will be picked up in a couple weeks, the other from MN and will be ready mid July.
It didn't quite take a bank loan, but almost! They range from $800-$1500+ but most breeders are at an even $1000. It seems like a lot, but when you put it in perspective they're no more expensive than most falconry birds and are much hardier! lol
Yes, we are planning to do the field tests. It looks like a lot of fun, we're both really excited about it!
I'd really be interested in talking to the guy with the Draht for sale. Please PM me the info. Thx
