Awwww. And it might win cash and prizes for YOU.

Three great contests mean big chances at great prizes for you right NOW on Wingshooting USA. Now’s the time to enter to win, and maybe see yourself, your kid, or your dog on Wingshooting USA next fall! 

All you have to do is go to our sponsors’ websites! Of course, watching the show will be fun and educational, too, so watch on VERSUS, Fridays, 9:30 a.m. Eastern time or over the air on AMG-TV and TUFF-TV.

Please tell your friends, club members and other bird-hunting and dog-loving folks you know. Do it today, and maybe I’ll be calling you to book that hunting trip, send you a check, or ship you a TriTronics collar!

“Take YOUR kid hunting.” Imagine taking your son or daughter to Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge in South Dakota … all expenses paid … and you’ll be on Wingshooting USA next season, too! Exciting pheasant hunting and luxurious lodging in the first Beretta “Trident” recipient lodge. Four runners-up will get $500 hunts at nearby hunting preserves. Go here to enter.

TriTronics will be awarding 39 Sport Jr. e-collars for photos of kids with dogs. It’s part of their effort to encourage more kids to hunt.  The contest is called “Young Hunters Afield.” It celebrates kids and dogs and could win you some great stuff. Send your entries here.  

Native performance dog food will be supporting Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever chapters with cash … moolah … samolians … dough … cha-ching! Send photos and note your chapter name so you can help Native help them in their “Conservation Showcase.” Some individual members will win great Native prizes, too. Go to this web page for entry details and maybe we’ll see you on TV!

A screen shot you'll likely see on the air this season

A screen grab from HD footage you'll likely see on the air this season

Sure, there’s the glamour of airline food, missed connections, lost (expensive, camera) luggage and ever-present doggie breath on the set. Don’t forget the surly airline personnel, rain, cold, gale-force wind, and a spate of bad shooting.  Just kidding!

I’m going over all the raw footage from last year’s hunts, the first step in lining out episodes and writing the voiceover for the new show. And boy, how it can drag when you’re not actually out there doing it. But that’s why we get the “big bucks” (hah!), because we take all those ingredients, add a little seasoning, stir, simmer, and create entertaining, educational, informational, motivational wingshooting programs.

Most of you know it takes hours of hunting to get minutes of good television, and I’m being reminded of it – big time – right now. We don’t have a real one anymore, but there is a big digital “cutting room floor” here, fast becoming cluttered with reject footage. But there’s also the flip side: reliving good times with friends new and old, great dogs, beautiful places, and some adrenaline rushes that ought to be bottled and sold in dark alleys for big dollars.

What’s on the screen now:A South Dakota grasslands hunt with shorthairs, coping with high winds and running ringnecks. If you’ve been there and done that, you know how tough it’s going to be to make a show out of dark skies, sketchy points and wild-flying birds. There is hope, though, as later in the day we salvage it with a new strategy (more later) and additional personnel including South Dakota’s governor and my friend, Mike Rounds.

On a positive commercial note, two new sponsors will help bring you the show, TriTronics (the collar guys) and ESP (hearing protection). It may sound trite, but it’s also true. Without sponsors nobody would be on the air, so get off your high horse if you’ve mounted up and are looking down your nose at the rest of us. I’m grateful to these folks as well as the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Native performance dog food, Black’s directories and artist Ross Young. So, spend some money with them when you have a need!

End of commercial. It’s back to raw footage … as duty calls!
