You can learn a lot from magazines and books. But to really know something, you have to experience it. Bob Foshay has been guiding upland hunters in central Maine for twenty plus years. When it comes to experience with wild birds and bird dogs, he has plenty. A day in the field with Bob is like a master’s class in chasing grouse & woodcock. I look forward to it every year.
Bob turned 79 this year and he thinks this will be his final season of guiding. I’m grateful for the time we’ve spent in the field, and for all he taught me about bird dogs and grouse/woodcock hunting. I’ll miss him next year.
BTW: here’s a post I put up a few years ago about another trip I made with Bob.
