Cjd1104 get on facebook and search Trevor Fulmer he has some great dogs and runs them in a lot of tests so if he's not selling he might be able to help you find a good one !!
Also check with Carl Merill
Cjd, It is a bad time of the year to look for a dog ?
What i would tell you is : Don't believe anything you are told about a dog, try it out in the woods ! Run it by it's self and have some one with you that knows dogs !
