07/07/2014 - Quickmarksman's Tom Tekoa

Tom has won the Herman Smith Open Setter Derby award for 2013-2014. I was very pleased with all of Toms performances during his derby season. He didn't place every time but always ran a big race to the front and never acted tired or hot. Some of the trials he ran the temperature was approaching 80 degrees and it didn't seem to bother him at all. Even though he is a true All Age he was never lost in a trial. He has a long effortless stride and is fast an classy. Also stylish on point with a good nose and is a good bird finder. I would like to breed Tom to a few choice bitches at private treaty.

TAD RECENTLY WON THE MO. SHOOTING DOG CHAMPIONSHIP WITH MORE THAN 70 OF THE TOP SHOOTING DOGS COMPETING. EDDIE TAYLOR DID A GREAT JOB HANDLING TAD TO THIS IMPORTANT WIN. CONGRATULATIONS TO EDDIE AND THE OWNERS, VAGAS MATHIS AND MIKE LOOBY. ALSO TO TAD'S FORMER HANDLER, MIKE HESTER WHO DID A GREAT JOB DEVELOPING AND HANDLING TAD.

 
04/17/2010 - N. C. All Age Championship

Mike Hester ran Quickmarksman's Hard Terms in the NC All Age Championship and had a great race with 1 outstanding find. We think we were winning the trial until we lost him with 4 min. left. He was found with the tracker pointed after time. He has come close 2 years in a row at this trial. Maybe our luck will change in the future.

 
04/17/2010 - Quickmarksman's Fortune

Mike Hester ran Fort in the Southern Pines open derby at Hoffman in march and placed 3rd. He ran a great race but didn't find birds. They were had to come by and only 1 derby pointed birds.

 
04/17/2010 - Hoffman Dec.09

I ran Easy Terms (Tad) and Quickmarksmans Fortune (Fort) in the Amt All Age and the Amt. Derby at Hoffman in Dec.09. I placed Tad 2nd in the all age and Fort 2nd in the derby. Both dogs did a very good job.

 
04/17/2010 - Phesant Championship

My daughter and I traveled to Kildeer Plans in Oct 09 and ran Easy Terms (Tad), Quickmarksmans Hard Terms (Joe) and Quickmarksmans Sportster (Snook) in the Amt. Pheasant Championship. We had a great time and I was pleased with the dogs performance even though we didn"t win. Tad ran a good race and had 2 limb finds and was in contention until I let him get on the wrong side of a large ditch. He had a hard time crossing the ditch and that kept him from having a good finish. Snook was running a good race and had 1 find however I was unable to flush twice so I picked him up at about 40. I lost Joe soon after the start and found him pointed with the tracker. The dogs do a better job than I do.

 
11/06/2009 - EASY TERMS Pheasant Championship

We ran Tad in the amt. pheasant championship at Kildeer Plains Oct. 2009. He had 2 very good finds and a great race for aout 40 min. until I let him get on the wrong side of a ditch he couldn't cross. I was able to go back to a crossing and get him but it hurt his finish. I'm sure he was in contention until this happened. It is tough running a big going dog on grounds the handler doesn't know. Tad did his part but I did not do minre.

 
10/06/2009 - QUICKMARKSMAN'S FORTUNE

Robin and Hunter Gates handled Fort to two first and one runner-up placements in the derby trials in Canada this summer. Robbin says Fort runs big but still finds a lot of birds. He is advanced in his training and we hope he will adapt to the southern habitat and quail without any difficultly. We hope to have him ready for the derby championships in Jan. Thanks Robin, Hunter and crew.
