Hunting Dog Podcast Hosted Hunt 2018
The Hungry Trout was proud to host the Hunting Dog Podcast for its first hosted hunt this past week and I was lucky enough to participate. We were Joined by host Ron Boehme and his webmaster Matt along with six of their guests for our first hunts of the year. Luckily, the temperatures cooperated and we were able to see some good dog work. In atypical fashion the grouse were wary as this timeframe landed during a transition period for food. Typically this time of year we are looking for berries when we search fro grouse but an early mass led to the berry supplies being picked clean by the beginning of October. We did find grouse but not in the large concentrations we usually find them in this week. But there is good news, what we didn’t find for grouse we more than made up for with woodcock.
We were into steady doses of woodcock all week long and it made for consistent action. We were able to see a young dog mature this week after many wild bird contacts and that was a special experience.
Our final day we were also joined by Ried Bryant who is the Wingshooting Services Manager for Orvis and we had a great hunt with Ried. At the end of that day that group of hunters had tallied 49 woodcock flushes and 9 grouse.
All in the all the hosted hunt was a complete success. We were able to spend a lot of great quality time in the northwoods with our guests who were able to see and harvest a bounty of birds. This past week we hunted over 8 different dogs of 5 different breeds and saw great work from all of them. We recorded several podcasts for the week ending in our re-cap on the final night which can be heard by clicking the photo below.
