Helena, MT 59602
"Both Steve and Rae Brown were raised in upland country in Montana. They left Montana for a 20 year adventure to live in the urban community of Seattle-Tacoma. In 2005 they returned for a holiday visit with family and Steve went upland hunting with his brother and his brother's pointing lab. After watching a bird dog work and recognizing the need for a well bred dog, Steve decided he needed a gun dog. Steve and Rae returned to Seattle to research the various breeds. Through a recommendation from a relative it was suggested he consider purchasing a German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP).
Steve researched GSP breeders extensively in Washington State. He decided to purchase a GSP from Leo Mittag, from No-Mars Kennel who has 36 years of breeding, testing, and competition experience.
After purchasing their first GSP they decided that it was time to return to MT and to the activities they grew up with. Rae, who had never hunted, started venturing out with the gang for hunting trips and became hooked on the hunt and the dogs. That first hunting season they hunted with their dogs nearly every weekend .
