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 […]

Introducing Lexi…

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.

The Dakotas are dying…

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.

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 […]

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 […]
