My friends call me "JT," my dogs ignore me.

The “JT” in JT’s Upland Blog stands for Jared Tanner. I am an avid upland bird hunter, marketing professional and entrepreneur.  A few years ago, I decided to combine my passion and hobby (bird hunting) with my prior work experience and entrepreneurial spirit to launch a new business called Uplanders Warehouse – a retail and online operation catering to the gear and apparel needs of upland bird hunters.  I am now an official dealer of upland apparel and products for Browning, Beretta, Filson, Columbia, and many other great upland brands.

JT’s Upland Blog will cover several subjects ranging from upland gear reviews to bird hunting and dog training to small business management.

Blogs are best when they’re interactive, so please feel free to chime in when you have an opinion.

  1. Greetings JT-

    Scott here from OutsidePR in San Francisco. I thoroughly enjoy reading your insights on the hunting world and dog training- and was wondering if you might be interested in working with us on a review or two. We represent a variety of outdoor brands including Wolverine, Ryders Eyewear, GU Energy, and Hydrapak.

    Thanks for your time, and have fun out there!

  2. JT,

    I’ve enjoyed reading through your blog and found it very well written and informative. Sounds like you are living the dream. Can’t help but be a little jealous of all that great country you are in. Quail season is getting ready to start here in AZ, so I’ve been dusting off the gear and swinging the gun. Look forward to following your blog here in the future.

    • Ben,

      I don’t know if it’s living the dream yet. One of the big problems with this business is that the busy season is right when I’d rather be out chasing birds 😉 But I must admit, there are some perks to it. As for the great country I live in, yes – it is absolutely beautiful, but the bird populations this year are way down. I’ve been out a few times already with very limited success. We had a bad winter last year, followed by a cold, wet spring (right when the birds were hatching), and our numbers are really low. Based on what I’ve seen to date, I may be planning a trip to South Dakota soon. Hopefully your quail numbers in AZ are a little better this year. -JT
