Re: Do You Hunt Upland Birds?

It's actually my favorite hunting so I can never get enough of it. The best part for me is working my dogs---a savvy english cocker, and a rough and tumble young boykin....it's a blast.

Re: Do You Hunt Upland Birds?

Funny you should as. Yes, yes I do. I hunt them as much as 190 days per year.

Often my season starts in September in the Dakotas, head over to Idaho, Montana, occasionally Washington state and then work my way back down through Nebraska, Kansas, and finish the season here in Texas up on the last day of February.

We hit a few field trials in between.



Duke pictured above is one of our younger shining stars.



His father Bullett (above) was our first Field Champion, and he has utterly mastered 11 species of upland birds across 13 states.

We've had German Shorthairs constantly since 1969 and in all that time I've only missed 4 bird seasons and those were due to overseas deployments.

Whenever I could though I'd always take leave during bird season as it was a great "mind wash" and a chance to just relax and have some fun.

Yep! I hunt chuckers and huns. I get a lot of funny looks about my bird dog...she is a border collie. I figured if she was smart enough to be trained to herd cattle and sheep she was smart enough to learn how to be a bird dog. The only major problem I had with her when she first started retrieving birds was she didn't want to give them to me. She gave me the look like,"This is my bird. I found it. You go find your own bird." But she never did that again after the first year of hunting. Now when I get my hunting vest and shotgun she about turns inside out she gets so excited.

Wild Rose,

After looking at your dog, no wonder I get funny looks when I take my border collie out bird hunting with me.
