Colonial Farms, LLC is a Michigan Limited Liability Company and have 3 divisions within our family-owned business - Field Dog Training, Gamebird Preserve and German Shorthaired Pointers.
"We are very blessed to live on 100 beautiful family-owned acres in Chelsea, Michigan. We love to bird hunt, train all breeds of gun dogs and breed an occasional litter of German Shorthaired Pointers. Since 2005, we have shared our piece of paradise with the public through our DNR licensed gamebird preserve. We have enjoyed the preserve business very much and it is a blessing to be doing what we love with the dogs and birds in the fields. We look forward to serving your needs, whether it is to provide you with an enjoyable day pheasant hunting on our Private Gamebird Preserve, Private Field Training Lessons, or a new German Shorthaired Pointer Puppy."- Bill and Vicki Murdock, Colonial Farms, LLC
Through the DNR, we have a licensed gamebird preserve for your year-round dog training and exercise needs. We offer the use of our entire 100 acres of beautiful rolling terrain for Private Hunts for your hunting party's enjoyment. An awesome bird hunt is waiting for you, whether it is for Chukar or Pheasant hunting with your family, or Chukar or Pheasant hunting with your employees and/or business contacts, we have the great flying birds for you. Many hunters and competition dog owners love the convenience of our unique terrain to train privately with their dogs on live birds year-round. We carry Pheasant and Chukar for your dog training and/or hunting needs. The 100 acres are by reservation only and due to the high demand for our private hunts, please contact us for reservations at least a week or two in advance.
Bill offers Private Field Training Lessons for you and your bird dog one-on-one to help you bring out the best in your hunting partner. With private lessons and live birds, he will teach you how to train your gun dog in short simple lessons while at your home in between visits at our preserve. No commitments are necessary and you may come as little or as often as you prefer to train your dog year-round. Bill is always available with the training equipment and live birds to help you work on problems if they develop in the future. We plan to carry Pheasant and Chukar Partridge for your dog training and hunting needs. Whether your gun dog is 3 months or 3 years old, Bill will help you develop your bird dog into what you desire at your convenience and while bonding with your four-legged partner for that close working relationship in the field for many years to come.
IMPORTANT: As of January 2018, we are NO LONGER BREEDING GSPs. We enjoyed breeding German Shorthaired Pointers for 15 years. Unfortunately, due to PARENT CARE-TAKING ROLES for the upcoming years, we have decided that it was best to RETIRE as BREEDERS as of January 2018. Although the following GSP information no longer applies, I will leave it on this page to allow others to see how we did things for the past 15 years. It may be helpful for comparison's sake when shopping for your next new puppy.
As licensed breeders of German Shorthaired Pointers, we personally own 6 GSPs as our field guide dogs here on our Gamebird Preserve. All of our dogs are great Upland Bird Hunters but they are also very beautiful and have wonderful loving personalities, too. Their offspring have proven to have the same wonderful qualities throughout the years. Their bloodlines contain many Field Champions, Show Champions, Dual Champions, and National Champions.
