I’m constantly amazed by the resiliency of life. Every living species is constantly evolving in order to survive. Mutations, both good and bad, take place all around us, and one of the latest discoveries has to do with heartworms in dogs.
Here are some things to watch for so you can keep your dog hunting like a pro this season.
If you want to start a jawing match between dog men, bring up the topic of which breed is best at a certain task or the difference between trial/test dogs and hunting dogs. With retrievers, trial folks have a tendency to look down their nose at dogs that are “just” hunting dogs, while hunting folks tend to completely miss the point of trials/tests and think of the trial retriever as a “robot dog.”
For waterfowlers, the early teal season is a preamble for the regular season – a reward for enduring the heat and dearth of action since last season. But for many hunters across the South, the wait continues.
Check out our waterfowl hunting bucket list. We rounded up the 8 birds every hunter should get to chase before he dies.
Here are some of the latest research studies that might be useful to hunting-dog owners.
Here are some ways to care for your birds before putting them in a taxidermist's hands.
McCauley is the owner and head veterinarian at McCauley Animal Clinic in Saint Charles, Mo. Not long ago he had a dog come in with a GI block. McCauley opened the dog up and pulled out a pair of panties it had swallowed. With a surgery like this costing between $1,500 and $2,500 (after radiographs, medication, follow-up, etc.), those knickers just became very expensive.
For the last two seasons, at least, pheasant hunting throughout the heartland has been tough. Reports coming out of even the top spot, South Dakota, showed subpar bird numbers. If the early weather, habitat, and nesting reports from Pheasants Forever are any indication, the 2013-14 season will bring more tough hunting, even in the best states.
I’m thinking a teal “slam” would be pretty cool. The green-wing, blue-wing, and cinnamon teal are residents of North America, and they all have their own distinct and beautiful markings and plumage. Putting aside the fact that they’re fast, darting flyers, the small ducks present other challenges.
