Pay attention to your dog and you’ll become a better hunter. That’s what Wingshooting USA TV host and author Scott Linden says. He should know, he’s hunted with hundreds of pointers, flushers and retrievers while making the show and on his own hunting adventures. He’s compiled his observations, suggestions, and advice into a new seminar called “What the Dogs Taught Me” based on his upcoming book to be published this summer by Skyhorse Publishing of New York.
Pheasant Fest/Quail Classic: Both topics every day Feb. 15-17.
Scott offers a lighthearted, welcoming, and practical approach that introduces you to the skills, gear, protocol and “dogology” you’ll need to hone your skills or begin your exploration of the uplands. From gun fit to field etiquette, reading bird cover, and how to interact with dogs, guides, and fellow hunters, you’ll be ready for your first (or your next) bird hunt. Seasoned uplanders will find insights and semi-secret guide’s tips that will make their next trip afield more productive and fun. Beginners will discover insights and observations not contained in other books or videos.
What this seminar is NOT, is another training workshop full of repetition, rote exercises and boring drills. Most of the ideas are actually better at training dog owners than their dogs!
Of course, all of the learning is punctuated by plenty of fun and games and every attendee will receive a free copy of Scott’s “Ultimate Upland Checklist” so you and your dog are outfitted from muzzle to paw, head to toe. Said one attendee: “Scott’s lessons are worth their weight in dog food. What will you learn? Everything from better shooting to dog training shortcuts … insights into why a dog does what he does, and how to help him help you. Hunting tactics and strategies, and ideas you won’t find in anyone’s books, videos or magazine articles. When Scott is done with you, you’ll be a better hunter!”
Whether you own a Lab, spaniel, or pointing breed, Scott Linden wants to help you become a better bird hunter by attending his “What the Dogs Taught Me” (short version) or “Bird Hunting Boot Camp” (long version) seminar. Whether you’re a seasoned upland veteran or a newcomer, Scott offers something for you at this fast-paced and informative seminar.
- Shooting tips
- Dog training advice
- Bird behavior
- Hunting strategies
- Shortcuts, tips and tactics
Full of fun, audience interaction, prizes and pop quizzes, Scott uses props and PowerPoint for a dynamic, information-packed seminar that usually plays to stand-room-only crowds and garners rave reviews:
“Thought your seminar was great. You talked of the things dog owners need to know, not what you have to sell them. I bet you could have gone on for hours.”
“I too speak in front of people and I feel you had all of us in the palm of your hand. We all would have stayed at least another hour if you would have let us.”
“Thank you for the one on one attention you gave me, I’m sure my dog Stormi would thank you if she could.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for putting on such a good seminar for us. Great information, and your presentation was very well done.”
“We’ve also been receiving a lot of great feedback here in the store, so thanks again.”
“Thank you sooo very much for coming up to Seattle and presenting such a fabulous clinic. I learned a lot and found myself repeating some of the stories and tips you had to my boyfriend when I got home.”
“I found the “Boot Camp” to be very interesting. Even after hunting upland birds for many years over all kinds of dogs – pointing, flushing and retrieving - I was able to remember some of the things I’ve forgotten over the years from your camp. Timing was perfect as we prep for the season. “
