Sophie’s first year out west hunting was in Western South Dakota on the Cheyenne Sioux Indian Reservation. Sophie has a burning hunt prey drive that allows her to hunt hour after hour day after day relentlessly pursuing pheasants, sharp tail grouse and even partridge. Sophie is excellent at finding downed birds and an excellent retriever.
