Here’s a very cool video promoting the Upland Gundog Association, what looks to be a new field-trial organization, since their website is still under construction. However, their Facebook Page is up and running. We’ll wait for more info, but in the meantime, check out the great shots of dogs flushing birds in the video above.
Think that all hunting traditions are dying and that all kids are interested in is video games? Then check out the video above and read the note we received from a young man from Minnesota, who is trying his hardest in ways that should make us all more hopeful for the future:
Chad Hines from Willow Creek Kennels is spending some time guiding hunters at Greystone Castlethe 2011-12 Orvis Wingshooting Lodge of the Year in Mingus, Texasand he sent this great short clip of some nice dog work and fine shooting. Willow Creek breeds and trains German shorthairs, and check out the ways that Jed and Max work together on both points and retrieves. Great stuff.
In shot gunning there are many different ways we can improve our hit percentage. Skeet, Trap, Sporting clay, or just going to the local sand pit with a hand thrower are all ways to have fun and perfect your shot gunning skills. In this podcast Brett and I attempt to explain the different shooting game’s we enjoy and think you will too.
