55 years a grouse hunter/Frank Jezioro

Franks book “Fifty-Five years a Grouse Hunter” is possibly the best book I’ve ever read. It comes from a true dog man, and sportsman. We talk about the old days and the present. His travels across the country with his dogs and his passion for the grouse. If we can learn anything from another hunter, we can learn what it takes to be a true sportsman and bird lover, yet still take a few birds for the table.

Delmar Smith

I still need to pinch myself, that I was able to spend time with a legend of the dog training world. Delmar was born into a world that most,or all of us can’t wrap our minds around. A life of working with animals and the natural world. His simple approach to training has brought him fame, but his approach to life is what made him who he his. A true dogman and a true people person. If i never do another interview, I will have zero regrets. Enjoy

Randy Herlin, Setters and set backs

This interview was inspiring, in fact, it helped me rethink my own passions for dogs and birds. Randy lost most of his right leg to cancer about 9 years ago, but he never lost his drive or his passion for bird hunting. he is NOT a handicapped hunter!!!! He is a true sportsman with a will to continue, his motto is “get busy living”  It might be karma, but he finally has a Setter that retrieves to hand!!!!
