Good morning, Lloyd, Hope all is well with you my friend.
I wanted to let you know that Bird Dogs Afield won first prize
in the broadcast TV category for 2010 from the New England
Outdoor Writer’s Association. The episode was of our November hunt with Long Gone
Madison. The award had nothing to do with my hosting or editing skills….it was all
about the dog work. Thanks for allowing me to film that day.

A Letter from September 2015

Thanks for your time yesterday, hope we didn’t get too much in the way. Shooting grouse/ woodcock is a challenge for a lot of reasons. First are the birds (which are skittish or there may be long periods of time in between contacts), second are the dogs which usually have a defect (low tail, not stead to wing/flush, etc), third is the cover and how the light comes through (which is all over the map). You had plenty of birds in your coverts so that was solved, your dogs are the best I’ve seen so kudos to you for solving that, the rest is just light and God determines what He’ll send us for the time. Grouse/woodcock image yield is traditionally low but I got some good ones that can be easily cleaned up. Here are two examples, just need to sweep out the red eye as I had to use a flash. I wasn’t sure how long y’all were gonna be so I parked your truck in the shade to keep the dogs cool. Hope momma didn’t mind a truck on the yard. I’m going to make an introduction to you and Tracey Lieske at Wild Wing Lodge in Kentucky. Hopefully you and Dave can put on a program for him, work some dogs after the snow flies, make a little money, and probably sell some pups. Because of the combined work I have done over the years (marketing and freelance writing) I’ve seen a tremendous amount of dogs, venues, handler/trainers and what you and Dave have is industry-best. I did have a bunch of ideas on my way home and would like to share them with you when we next meet. thanks again for having me and Joe, and good luck over the next few days.
