and Louise Brown are life long residents of the area
and believe that Mississippi is truly God’s country. Mississippi
is blessed with beautiful blue skies, cool winter temps, pine
and hardwood forests, rolling hills, grass fields and crops. Big
Oaks Brittanys is located on the back of beautiful Grenada Lake
just outside of Grenada, Mississippi. Danny has hunted most of
his life and during the 70s and 80s enjoyed the best Southern
Bob White Quail hunting in and around his own back yard. Working
mostly with long tails, he never really got to know or hunt behind
the Brittany. In 1998 Louise rescued a little orange and white
Brittany named Josey. She was not very well trained, but hunted
very hard and was a dream to watch. A couple of years later came
Little Bit and Hunter. Danny trained them from pups and really
got to see what a powerhouse this breed can be. They we so easy
to train and could hunt all day.
Hunter was Louise’s first show candidate. He was a beauty
and could hunt too, but she came to realize that he was going
to grow a bit much for the show ring. That is when she got Faison’s
Fire King. He was just perfect and boy could he hunt! He finished
his championship very early at just over a year old and then came
the Chilcote line of Brittanys and yes, show dogs can hunt!
Louise was hooked on showing this breed. Together, Danny and Louise
work to train their Brittanys for the field and show ring and
also the hunt test arena. Most of their Brittanys have a show
title and or a hunt test title. (Yes, show dogs can hunt!!) In
2000 Danny and Louise decided to start Big Oaks Brittanys. Mississippi
can no longer claim to have a large population of wild Bob White
Quail, but with the help of Pollard’s Quail Farm in Mathiston,
MS, Big Oaks Brittanys can claim to have the best Traditional
Quail Hunts anywhere. On a cold winters day there is nothing better
than the site of the dogs running ahead, nose into the wind and
the point, flush and sound of the shotgun. As the last bird of
the day is brought to hand, it is with much contentment that you
can reflect back on the day’s events and realize that life
doesn’t get much better than this.
Danny and Louise would
like to invite you to Big Oaks Brittanys for a lively, fun filled
day of traditional quail hunting.
