the golden rule

I’M FORTUNATE that I get to talk to a lot of dog trainers every day for my job. Those talks allow me to hear differing methods and opinions on training and provides me insight into the wide variety of styles used to train bird dogs. Before bringing home my English setter puppy, Jones, I read a number of books and watched many videos. Each had their own methods for training pointing breeds. Yes, the foundation was always similar, but each trainer had a means of doing things that they found successful and stuck with it. It left the door open for some confusion on my part. What method was “best,” and which should I train my setter with? Do I teach him to sit? One trainer said yes, another said no. Do…

young blood

My name is Ty Haws and I am 13 years old. I have a picture I wanted to show you of my dog, Millie. She was 8 months old. She is an English pointer and she is my very first dog.

fabarm autumn

FOR SOME upland hunters nothing but a proper side-by-side shotgun will do, but the number of available side-by-sides has dwindled considerably since the days when you might walk into your local gun shop and find a brand-new Winchester 21 for sale under $100. This is due largely to the fact that fine double guns are more complicated to manufacture than other types of shotguns and require more hand fitting of parts. Nevertheless, hunting with a fine side-by-side is a special experience and every upland hunter should, at some point, own a fine double. There’s a magic to these guns that you must experience to appreciate. Fabarm understands that, and they’ve listened to a cadre of their customers beg them to build a good side-by-side for years. If you happen to be…

grouse poppers & dates

FOR MANY upland hunters, the September grouse opener marks the beginning of hunting season. For my husband and me, it is a special, highly anticipated time of year. The doldrums of summer are coming to an end, and autumn—plus all that comes with it—is about to make a comeback. Unfortunately, September in Nebraska also means having to hunt in warm weather. Temperatures can reach well into the 90s, and while this might feel uncomfortable for both hunter and dog, it also does no favors for the flavor of game meat. It’s good practice to cool down your hunted meat as soon as possible. Fortunately for upland hunters, having to gut birds in the field is not necessary. Yet spoilage can occur, and that’s often due to negligence on warm days. While you…
