Home Sweet Hunting Lodge

I’ve been hunting the north-central area of Kansas for the past several years – in and around Luray, Kansas. It was probably 7 or 8 years ago that I was introduced to the area by a friend of mine who had access to family (distant family) land in the area. It soon became an annual … Continue reading

The Jimmer Experiment: Oversized lap dog, or hunting machine?

Every time I talk about my family and/or mention my hunting dogs, I always tell people that I have 2 German Shorthair Pointers… and my wife has a lab. I’m not a “little, yappy dog” kind of guy – can’t stand them – so several years ago when my wife was pleading for a dog … Continue reading

Field First-Aid for My Shorthair Cora

The 2,700 mile rooster road-trip I recently took with my son was not without some adventures and hiccups. One of those hiccups was with my younger German Shorthair Pointers – Cora. I’ve owned a few dogs in my day, and Cora is the one that always seems to find trouble. She is fearless and as … Continue reading

Product Review: Tri-Tronics Sport Upland G3 EXP with Beeper

The Tri-Tronics Sport Upland G3 EXP e-collar with beeper overall is a great product. A couple minor details I’d change if I could, but nothing that I can’t live with. I’ve used this e-collar and beeper combo for a couple years now and it has served me very well. I’d recommend it to anyone buying an electronic or shock collar for training and working their dogs.

How can you lose in Winner, SD? Well…

Our last pheasant fling of the year – a couple days in Winner, SD. Birds numbers were definitely down, but the trip was a lot of fun – I’ll definitely be back for more. Continue reading

Missed Opportunities at the Bowdoin Refuge in Malta, MT

One of the challenges with late-season pheasant hunting is that the birds are really smart. These are the all-stars of the pheasant crop – the smart birds that get straight A’s in survival. All the dumb birds are long gone. But that’s part of the challenge I enjoy. The last place you’ll find me is on a preserve or game farm with easy targets. I’m more about the hunt and watching my dogs work than I am about the kill. That said, it always feels nice to bag a rooster 😉 Continue reading

Take the kids bird hunting!
