"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.
We are licensed breeders of German Shorthaired Pointer and personally own 7 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. More than anything our puppies want to be with and please their owners. Their bloodlines contain many Field Champions, Show Champions, Dual Champions, and National Champions. We only have 1 litter a year and we always have a waiting list for our next litter of puppies. We accept 100% completely refundable deposits. Due to parent caretaking responsibilities in the upcoming years, we are NO LONGER TAKING DEPOSITS for our FINAL 2 GSP LITTERS in 2017 and 2018. All of these future puppies should be spoken for with our current deposit holders.
