Oh yeah …













Okay, getting the good stuff up top: This was yesterday’s bag for Buddy, Manny and me. Al Gadoury of 6X Outfitters, who you know from his appearances on the show, led me – for fun – to some very fun hunting near Lewistown, Montana.  Thanks Al!

Al’s setters and Lab Bella worked hard, as did my guys, in increasingly high temperatures. Some nice surprises in strong coveys of Huns, and almost a dozen single and double flushes of sharptails within range of Al. Oh yeah, he limited on roosters too, with most of the sharpies within range falling to his classic side-by-side.

A good time was had by all. Hope your season is going as well. Where will the Aliner park next? Watch this space!

What a place!

Heads up! Here’s what’s happening on Wingshooting USA for the week of Jan. 4, 2010 …    

This is one of viewers’ favorite episodes, who loved the interaction and backstory of the dog team we worked with. Montana’s big sky country is the setting for big-running Pointers after Hungarian partridge on the prairies. I’m in awe of this mother-daughter dog team and their scaling of rocky ledges and sweeps through coulees to produce birds for me and my host John Shirley of Eagle Nest Lodge. Handler Jeremy DeVries gets a blue ribbon! The hunt comes full circle in a number of ways: acquaintances become friends by the end of the hunt, and mother dog shows daughter a thing or two about hunting! And remember, both dogs are working on behalf of a non-profit and your vote can win them $500, so go here to learn more (click on the “Hot Dog” button). If your name is picked, you’ll get $500 of Cabela’s gear.  

On our Breed Showcase, the little dog that started in England and ended up in France … and why. Vote here for your favorite breed and win its rescue group a ton of Native performance dog food.
