I don't have much info on english setters. I've hunted over a couple of them before, but only once or twice and they were other peoples dogs. From what I've heard/seen, they have good noses, and are great hunters. Best of luck to ya with yer new dog.
The life cycle of a hunter... hunt, eat, sleep if there is time, then go hunt again.
Chuck Norris doesn't go hunting, becasue hunting infers the possibility of failure. Rather, Chuck Norris goes killing.
