Talk turns to ideas turn to sketches then blueprints and now it’s becoming reality. Aliner’s Ned Collins just sent these photos of the Wingshooting USA official travel trailer under construction. Learn more about how they think – and what they do – by clicking on the logo.

By the way, many of your ideas are a part of this rig, so if you ever see it on the road or in the field, stop by – I owe you a cup of coffee!

Buddy and Manny have separate bunks, under mine! Bomb-proof floor material, too.

Exterior diamond plate - this rig will see a lot of gravel roads.

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.

Okay UPLAND NATION, time to get your hands greasy and your heads into a creative place. Let’s trick this truck.

It’s pretty basic now, but that’s how I like things – at least to start. My wife the painter first puts down a layer of white

Budget? Nah. The world is our oyster, at least for the moment, when it comes to customizing this rig.

gesso on every canvas, then starts splashing on the colors … lots of them. Like her blank canvas, this rig is white. Now the fun begins.

It’s a 2011 Dodge Ram (yes, that thing has a hemi), half-ton chassis, crew cab. Besides your great personalized license plate suggestions, what would you put on, pull behind, stack up, or otherwise do to this truck to make it the ultimate bird hunting rig? Practical, sure. Just plain cool stuff? You bet. What do you wish you’d spec’d out on yours? What have you seen that is now on your wish list?

You make the suggestions. Then I’ll start making the calls. We’ll all see the results next year on Wingshooting USA.

It's all part of the plan ... photo by Nancy Anisfield/anisfield hunting dog photography

Um, no, it’s not what some call a “cluster.” This is a good example of the hardworking Wingshooting USA crew literally getting all the angles last week at Quail Country Plantation. Dog on point, Lynn Berland (on left) creeps in for a canine closeup.

Meanwhile, Tad Newberry grabs a shot of yours truly (out of frame) getting ready to back Bob (far right) as Terry Wilson of Ugly Dog Hunting Co. handles his wire Scrub.  (By the way, this quail towered like a ringneck then streaked down a lane in the chinaberry trees. I actually hit it with my second shot!) That is truly a rare occasion – you can bet it will make the final cut.

Enjoy the sunshine and bare ground; and yes, I got a sunburn. Watch for it on the show this fall.
