Phil Swain is one of the most knowledgeable judges and most dedicated members of the NAVHDA. We break down the Utility Test with an emphasis on our years of judging and hunting experiences. We also throw in a bunch of stories of our worst test days. As NAVHDA judges we have to run our dogs too!! and it doesn't always go as we planned!
Ed Arnett from TRCP checks in to talk about 2020/2021 and the subjects we need to pay attention to. We get a little political, but fall back on the subject of his next dog. Life long Labrador guy gets Pudlepointer curious!
Dan Holder joins me to talk about his path in the outdoors. We cover a lot of ground including his love of guns, dogs, and food. His career at CZ-USA and his pointing poodle! Not a Pudel Pointer, a Pointing Poodle. Really I am not making this up!!
Great episode with three of the best grouse hunters that I know. And their dogs aren't bad either. We wrap up the 2020 season with some good intel and some great stories!
Coming from a hunting family in the UK, Matty found the American west was tailor made for his passion. He runs Owens Valley Wing Shooting. Training,guiding,and hunting was simply in his DNA!!
