PF Mag Insider: Summer Issue Preview, a Bird Dog Special
The cover for the upcoming Summer 2012 issue of the Pheasants Forever Journal of Upland Conservation is of Bill Mitchell’s dog, “Chase.” Why? South Dakota’s Mitchell rescued “Chase” from a shelter. Look for the feature about Mitchell’s hunting lodge that uses these rescue dogs for his pheasant hunting guests.
- Our Bird Dog Special Section covers gear and training, including one unique technique using a barrel. Speaking of gun dogs, Wyoming’s Chris Madson penned a great little story on human’s 30,000-year relationship with canines.
- Montana’s Don Thomas always writes a great pheasant hunting tale, but this time gives it a twist. Thomas and a young friend both needed new hunting partners and found them in each other. Fellow Montanan Dave Books zeros in on hunting small habitats – good thing given the huge loss of large-field CRP lands these days.
- You’ll enjoy reading the continuing Pheasant Country Explorer series and the good pheasant hunt I had with Minnesota’s Big Stone County PF chapter last December – and how its volunteers are working to keep it that way.
- PF and conservation partners in North Dakota are working hard to pass dedicated wildlife habitat funding by tapping into the billions being made in the state’s massive new oil fields.
