Last Saturday, my wife and I took Lexi to the local pool for “Doggie Day”. We thought Lexi would have a good time in the water. She didn’t. It looks like water retrieves may be out.

My new English Pointer Lexi is almost 21 weeks old now, and she’s growing fast. She’s up to 20lbs – almost 1/2 of how much she’ll eventually weigh – and her dexterity and coordination is improving. Training wise, she knows her name, and she’s picking up some basic commands: Come, Down, and NO (she hear’s […]

I’ve always like L.C. Smiths. While Parkers and Foxes are nice shotguns, I like the looks of a SxS with sidelocks. L.C. Smith was the only major American maker to build sidelocks, and today I think these guns are some of the best deals out there. While Parkers keep going up in price, and people […]
Books. Chairs. Cabinet counters. My wife’s toes. These are all things our new pup Lexi loves to chew on. We’re on day six with her, and so far Lexi is sleeping through the night, and we’re not having any messes in her crate or in the house. The chewing and the nipping is a bit […]

Thanks to the folks at Beretta, upland hunters don’t have to spend a ton of money to get a nice double. This BL-4 is all the shotgun you need for grouse or woodcock, and even though it shares some similarities with the world’s most expensive O/U, it’s a heck a lock cheaper. Beretta introduced their […]
I’m finally back from my fishing trip and some other travels. This past week has been especially busy: I started a new job on Monday and on Thursday this little bundle arrived. Her name is Lexi. She’s out of Superior Pointers in Bayfield, WI. She’s a fantastic pup, and my wife and I are thrilled […]
My first trip to South Dakota was in 2000. I was stunned by the number of pheasants, grouse, and partridge I saw. In four hours of hunting we moved hundreds of wild birds – hundreds. I wonder if anyone will have a similar experience this fall. Pheasant numbers are falling across South Dakota. While complex […]
A reader sent me an email yesterday and asked that I post the info below. The pic is of his lab Angus. We’ll keep you posted on how Angus is doing. To all of our D&D friends: MAKE SURE to get your animals vaccinated for snakebite..NOW…We did and Angus looks like he’s going to make […]

Pointing, retrieving, tracking game – sure some versatile gun dogs can do all that. But Jess springer spaniel goes one step further. Watch as she feeds an orphaned lamb from a bottle.
I didn’t know English Pointers spoke Swedish. But this orange-and-white female does (hahaha). Check out these videos to see how much control this guy has over his dogs. He’s running up to four at once: Britta the Pointer plus a trio of Drahthaars. The relationship between them and the trainer is amazing to see. Find […]
