Hunting dogs can be frustrating, exhilarating, and, when they leave us, heartbreaking. This video introduces you a lab named Sam and a duck hunter named Steve Koehly.

For the past few years now, Project Upland has been turning out videos about bird hunting, gundogs, and the sentiments behind loving both. Their latest effort — Camp Thunderbird — releases today.
