I have known Carol and Norm for 20 plus years. All that time they were running the Spinone in the NAVHDA training and testing arena. From the beginning they believed in the Spinone, was the perfect breed for them, and today it still is.
Ok, listen up and make plans to hit South Dakota. I'm going twice this year. Are you? After this episode you'll be thinking about it. After last year's low harvest, pheasants are springing back in great numbers. 46% overall increase, which means over one million roosters will fall to the gun this year. With any luck I'll bring home a couple dozen for the freezer. America's most popular non-native is waiting to see you in America's friendliest state.
We sit down to talk about our favorite hunts, dogs,shots, and other things that keep us hunting the uplands. Six of my listeners/ guests join in the roundtable to talk about the week.
We recap the day's hunt. Evan Boyle and his father-in-law Steve and Reid Bryant from Orvis, try to paint the picture of a great day in the woods. There were wet feet,wet dogs and cold beer on the table.
Here's a peak at the first three days of the HPD hosted hunt, at The Hungry Trout Lodge in Wilmington NY. set in the Adirondack mountians. We find many timberdoodles and miss a few Ruffies, along with a day of fly fishing (something I meant to practice beforehand). Stay tuned this week for more episodes from the mountains.
Scott Rall joined Pheasants Forever two years after its inception. Thirty-plus years later he is still giving 100% of his efforts to the country's best land and conversation organization. We talk about habitat, habitat, habitat ("If you build it, pheasants will come").
