What would you do to save your dog? Last January, my vet discovered a tumor on Puck’s lip. Further examination confirmed my fears: cancer. I also discovered that this cancer had spread to Puck’s lymph nodes. At eleven, Puck isn’t young. But she doesn’t look her age, either. Other than a little more white in […]

Back before I got Puck, I had a thing for the less popular sporting breeds – Vizlas, Griffons, French Spaniels, etc. I also liked Clumber Spaniels. From what I’ve been told, Clumbers used to be popular in the UK. Today, there numbers are extremely low – according to The Working Clumber Spaniel Society, there are […]

Here’s an OK deal on a real nice over-under shotgun. These Orvis/Beretta Uplander are 686s with fancy wood, and most of the ones I see have 26″ bbls. This one has that extra 2″ so many guys want these days. Even though the gun is a bit pricey (and the online description is lousy), I […]
Here’s a nice video of duck hunting in Kentucky. Enjoy.
This video sums it up nicely. It’s from Ann Jandernoa of Northwind Enterprises.
A buddy and I met up at Addieville East Farm on Friday. We shot a bunch of birds and had a great time. Here are some pics from the day. Enjoy.
Here’s a double you rarely see. It’s a sxs 20ga Beretta 626 Onyx, and it’s up for auction now, with the listing ending tomorrow, 12/24/2013, @ 6:22:43 PM ET. From the info I’ve found, it looks like Beretta offered 20 gauge 626s from 1985-1987. I can’t imagine the company made many of them. 20ga Beretta […]
Here’s a dog I haven’t heard of before: The Sprocker. It’s a cross between a Springer Spaniel and a Cocker Spaniel. According to SprockerSpaniel.co.uk, Sprockers have been around for over 2o years, and there are between 5,000 – 10,000 of them in the UK, making one of the most popular spaniel breeds there. Other than […]
