If you shoot a wild bird in this country, you need to support the habitat organization that support those birds. Period!!!
Phil Francone from Meindl USA set me up with a pair of boots last summer. They were everything I could hope for. If "miles equals birds" then "Meindl's equals miles"
Jeff Funke joins me to talk about the VHDF. Building a better mouse trap can be difficult, but a few dedicated people found that it was possible. The Versatile Hunting Dog Federation wanted to bring better clarity to the judgement of the versatile hunting dog. For breeders and buyers, the more details in test scores will be invaluable when making decisions. The better the test. The better the dog!!
Andrew Wayment likes to write about his beloved dogs and his beloved family. So when I scheduled this interview, I also invited his brother Shawn,"The Bird Dog Doc" to join in the conversation. These two brothers share their Upland hunting and Fly fishing passion, to a point that few ever do.
I will be attending the Canadian Valley ( in Oklahoma) Quail Forever chapter banquet at the end of this month. This is a little primer to the event. If you are anywhere near and want to see why we get together, why we have banquets and why we love quail, then put March 31st on your schedule!
