I've been lucky, and have spent a lot of time with my bird-crazed English setters over the years. Jenny (gone last year at 13) worked tight, checked back, and kept her eyes on me most times. Midge, likely the best turkey dog I'll ever have (pure English setter too like the others), worked big but always just inside the pocket. Radar, 8, like Jenny, stays close--though he can run big with the best of them; like the Willie Nelson song, I'm always on his mind. He too checks back like a wide receiver to a quarterback's huddle.
