Besides running Walker hounds on bobcats and lions, running a brewery and winery, Joe is running to the aid of the African Rhino. Joe has been training an elite pack of Texas hounds to live in Africa and help track down and apprehend poachers!!! That's right, stopping poaching under the threat of being run down by a trained pack of hounds may change the face of wildlife in Africa.

Justin is back on the show to answer listeners question about their dogs. do and don'ts, right and wrong, and especially what not to do with your first bird dog!!! There isn't a better dog trainer this side of Big Cabin Oklahoma. We dive into some great listener questions, and come up with some solid advise from a trainer that I respect. Justin's secret is (if there is one) Don't be in a hurry, dogs like children all progress at different speeds. And much like my foramtive years of Kindergarten thru High School, some dogs only learn so much.... Bringing out the talents of your dog can be more rewarding than training to a level that could be out of reach. Get a pencil and take notes.

We also talk a little duck hunting, conservation, and hunter perception in the public eye.

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.

Roger has a deep history with hunting in the UK and we compare that to his years here in the States. And of course we talk about his favorite breed of dogs.  The field bred English Cocker.  And we talk about why I need one!!

You cant argue with results. NAPPA (N.American Pudel Pointer Alliance) is without a doubt, a formula for sucess. I can only hope to bring my favorite breed up to this stantard.  We also go down memory lane about our years in NAVHDA and some of our favorite characters.

Mar 11, 2018

Beside being a long time NAVHDA judge, Bob started NAPPA The North American Pudelpointer Alliance. Along with a handful of concerned owners and breeders of one of the truly versatile breeds, they formed a group of like minded breeders that set their own goals and standards. 

The alliance has turned out amazing hunting companions to hunters all across America. The philosopy of NAPPA is one to aspire to. Over the years these dedicated breeders continue to raise the bar on themselves, and the test results speak loud and clear. We also go through many of our favorite times in the NAVHDA organization. and we review his new book " Breeding&Training Versatile Hunting Dogs-For Hunting and Hunt Tests"

I am a total fan of combat sports, I talked with a legend of the UFC. Chad is a world class wrestler, and UFC competitor. but more importantly he is a hunter at heart. His upbringing in the outdoors may be why he has what it take to step into the Octagon. From an early age, he was either competing or following his Dad in the mountains of California chasing deer.

Great talk with Courtney about the breed she hunts, trains, and tests. The German Longhaired pointer is a sleeper in this country, but in Europe it has proven itself to be a true versatile hunting companion. Along with being the breed warden for Deutsch Langharr North America, Courtneyis also the Hunting Heritage Program manager for Pheasants Forever.  We get into the nuts and bolts of the breed and her mission with Pheasants Forever. 

Feb 19, 2018

I still need to pinch myself, that I was able to spend time with a legend of the dog training world. Delmar was born into a world that most,or all of us can't wrap our minds around. A life of working with animals and the natural world. His simple approach to training has brought him fame, but his approach to life is what made him who he his. A true dogman and a true people person. If i never do another interview, I will have zero regrets. Enjoy

Feb 11, 2018

This interview was inspiring, in fact, it helped me rethink my own passions for dogs and birds. Randy lost most of his right leg to cancer about 9 years ago, but he never lost his drive or his passion for bird hunting. he is NOT a handicapped hunter!!!! He is a true sportsman with a will to continue, his motto is "get busy living"  It might be karma, but he finally has a Setter that retrieves to hand!!!!
