Eli x Charlie Pup
Hello Lyle, I am returning home from Montana from our annual pheasant hunt. Bristol has become an excellent bird dog. In the last 3 weeks we have taken 72 pheasants with her pointing about 80% of them. Her retrieving abilities and the way she uses are nose are excellent. She made 4 pheasant water retrieves this week massive cattails. She amazes me with her marking downed birds and always comes up with them. If a bird comes down you can bank on her finding and retrieving it! She is also an awesome family companion. Thanks for everything! Mark

This is Finn and he went to T.J. Trollope and is now a Kansas resident. He was picked up at 7 weeks of age and just a week later he is all locked up on his first quail. T.J. is planning on running some APLA tests with him in the future. I anticipate seeing some ribbons around the neck of this guy!!!
Lyle, Boji is doing great. On the left, he retrieved a duck into the boat at just 4 months of age! On the right, Boji did amazing on the pheasant opener and is learning so fast! We couldn't be happier with him! He weighs 52 pounds at 6 months of age. Also, today he had a 120 yard duck retrieve and is marking so well on the land and in the water. Thanks so much for Boji, we love him! John Mercer
Lyle. After one year Abby is fantastic!! She points and retreived upland birds, great retrieving on all waterfowl, and she just loves to please. She always tries to do the right thing and is super intelligent. We absolutely love her! My mom is 89 and we have had many dogs but she is in love with Abby. Abby has given her something to look forward to. We just wanted to say thanks for a great hunting dog and companion. Dudley
Hunting is a special part of my family, especially pheasant hunting. That took on a whole new meaning after purchasing "Booker" from Schut's kennel. Booker is a once in a lifetime dog. Not only is he my best friend, but an amazing hunting dog. I have friends, family, even stranger's longing to come hunting with me and my dog because he's something special. You do not need to turn on his collar while hunting because he works close and efficient; never missing birds and never straying to far ahead. Once he finds the rooster, it's a sight of beauty to see him lock up on point, until I say, "Booker, get em up". He then flushes the bird, and even when I make a bad shot he always retrieves it back to hand, most of the time not even waiting for me to praise him, because he longs to go back out and find another bird. Out in the field you couldn't ask for a better friend; or in the house, or playing with my nieces and nephew. A big thanks to Lyle Schut and his kennel for giving us such a special gift and a lifelong friend. If your looking for that next great hunting dog and companion, you need not look any further. Thanks so much! Tyler Meekma
We chose Jed from Cornstalker Kennels because he was very athletic, and he retrieved for us at 7 weeks. Jed was very aware of what was going on around him, and he always had a strong desire to retrieve from the very beginning. He always wants more when we are finished training or hunting. He took to the water immediately and loves to swim, even in the extreme cold. In his first pheasant season before his first birthday, he found and retrieved over 40 pheasants for us. To this day, he will hunt all day for us. He is collar condition, force fetched, and I trained him to do blind retrieves. Jed and I were chosen to guide for the governor’s hunt in Clay County, IA. Jed passed his Junior Hunter test in the AKC. Jed was able to do the work of an AKC Master Hunter, but I did not have the resources to travel for the tests. Jed is also a great companion for our entire family. I have also trained several other dogs produced by Cornstalker Kennels and they have shown exceptional ability and have been very successful in my training program. Thanks Cornstalker Kennels!
