How a beautiful dog in the field is like an operatic aria ... and other poetic observations. Those are part of this week's interview with Alaska hunter Christine Cunningham as we explore her state's iconic birds, the three species of ptarmigan. From habitat to tactics, the joys of a household with eight dogs, uniquely Alaskan hunting challenges, Chris covers the vast spaces where ptarmigan dwell, rocky crags and spongy tundra and most of it home to brown bears!
Chris is an artist with words - in print and on this podcast - so get ready to be inspired by her descriptions of our shared lifestyle. We also find out who mentored most of us, take a look at news and controversy over duck stamps, visit a public-access spot in Kansas, and learn what your dream about hunting dogs really means and the entire podcast is brought to you by: Sage & Braker Mercantile, Dr. Tim's performance dog food, RuffLand performance Kennels; HuntHuronSD.com, UplandNationDeals.com, Happy Jack, FindBirdHuntingSpots.com.

Find bird hunting spots ... sounds easy, but it's more complicated than the statement above, with a lot of moving parts. But it's also absolutely true. Research tells us lack of accessible land is the biggest reason many of us quit hunting or never start in the first place. My hope is this new website will help - because without hunters, there is virtually no conservation.
Finding bird hunting spots is a big challenge - I know, because I hunt publicly-accessible ground all season. On my TV show Wingshooting USA, and in my free time, I'm exploring public and private bird hunting spots all over the country looking for fun and great habitat. I'll help you with your DIY hunt, public bird hunting land access, and with advice on how to hunt upland birds. From walk-in, to wildlife management areas, I'll help you connect with bird hunting spots that I've personally visited, and those vetted by close friends and experts. Here, you'll find places to bird hunt, tips and skills to help you succeed once you get there, advice on becoming - or helping a new hunter, dog care and training advice, and the gear that will make your bird hunting more fun. Good luck!
