Jon Keehner earned his PhD. in Carnivore Ecology. We talk about the reintroduction of wolves in the lower 48. My background in wolves came from Google and Grimm's fairy tales. Jon's background is just a little bit deeper, ( like comparing a puddle to a lake) we talk about the reality of sharing the landscape with wolves and what it will take to truly to keep them managed. We also talk a little duck hunting, conservation, and hunter perception in the public eye.

We have all heard the term "this dog hunts" Kris and her pack have gone to the pinnacle of training,testing and hunting. She owns Hunting Hills Kennel,and has dedicated a good portion of her life to the Small Munsterlander.

I swear I will start plucking my birds from here on out!! Hank brings a career of cooking wild game to the pages of his new book. Besides belonging in the kitchen, it feels like it should spend time on the coffee table as well. Check out all of Hanks wild game creations and his book tour.
Franks book "Fifty-Five years a Grouse Hunter" is possibly the best book I've ever read. It comes from a true dog man, and sportsman. We talk about the old days and the present. His travels across the country with his dogs and his passion for the grouse. If we can learn anything from another hunter, we can learn what it takes to be a true sportsman and bird lover, yet still take a few birds for the table.
