Take the survey!

If you were on the receiving end of a recent survey, thanks for responding. (If you did NOT, and want to have some fun voting for your favorite dog breed for example, go here.) Your feedback helps make Wingshooting USA a better TV show, and even though it’s preliminary, the data provides some fascinating insights into the Upland Nation. For instance:

– So far, shorthairs and Labs are running neck-and-neck in the most popular dog breed question … about 20% each.

– 47% of us call pheasants our favorite quarry … quail are second at 22%.

– New boots, tires, and shotguns are on the shopping list for this season … at least 40% of us hope to get permission to buy each of these.

– 47% of us own more than one hunting dog … that’s a lot of feed!

Please follow the link and take the survey – you get to choose your own prize should your name be drawn at random – and I’ll keep you posted on final results.

I remember asking Patrick McManus how many shotguns are enough. He said “one more.” It’s a good rule to live by, (or buy, if you’ll pardon the pun). But with the economy in suspended animation, you’re probably changing your habits a bit.

I doubt anything will keep you from hunting, but it might affect your spending plans for the next couple seasons. So, what do you really, really, need … what will get your hard-earned dollars in the next couple seasons?

It’s our first survey of wingshooters/dog owners, and it’s only open until Feb. 10 so get there FAST.

Put in your two cents’ worth regarding your personal hunting lodge or preserve experiences, and I’ll share them (anonymously) with my friends in the industry. The upshot will be a better experience for you next time you lay out big bucks (or small). But more immediately, I’ll be pulling names at random and sending respondents a Blaze Buddy Bandanna or other great gear for wingshooters and doggy-type folk like us.

Thanks for your participation.
