What do you prefer:

Cunningham MS Giants
Georgian Giants
Wisconsin Jumbo
Butler Il
Northern

Which birds are best fliers, or the preferred stock for training and stocking of a gamebird hunting club?

Around here in my neck of the woods (north central Arkansas). The hunting clubs like the Georgia Giants or Tennessee Reds. The Butlers would not be a good flight bird since they are more of a meat bird.

Sorry but I have never had any Cunninghams. So I know little about them.

How are the T-reds? Are they similar in size and character to a northern or one of the larger species like Georgia? Just wondering how they got that great red color.

Howdy the T-Reds are a mutation of the BW's. They are fast flyer but short distant flyers. They are a meaty bird with an avg of 10-15 oz. but there may be some bigger. I'm going to get some here soon. p33

Although not generally as desirable for the hunt as bobs, keep in mind there are some breeds and strains of coturnix that may be of interest to some and can also be used to train dogs (again depending on what your specific purpose or goals are).

Sorry about the confusion. You are correct! I had Tenn Reds on my mind from another discussion.
