Artemis, the daughter of Zeus show art Artemis, the daughter of Zeus

The Hunting Dog Podcast

Jess Johnson is one of the founding members of Artemis. And like the Goddess of the hunt, she slings arrows with the best of them.  In mythology,  Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and was said to have perfect aim with the bow and arrow. I'm not saying Jess is the daughter of a Greek God... but her parents might have miss named her....

A listener asked if I have ever had an episode on the subject of, what is a Versatile Dog??? So I had my friend and fellow NAVHDA judge (Jeff Jalbert) join me for a long chat on the subject. We start out with a trip down memory lane and bring it around to what we feel about the word versatile. Sit back this is a long one.

Kirby and I catch up on all things double barrel. There is just something special about a good gun that has passed through a few hands over a hundred years. It's like shaking hands with the last owner, even if you never met him.

The Hunting Dog Podcast

It was a tall order but Mark and his Dad started out last Sept and hunted through Feb. Together they successfully took every upland gamebird flying in the North American Continent. It wasn't easy, but the Peterson's have no regrets. Not to mention a freezer full of feathered trophies for the dinner table.

Ben Jones and I talk about the sustainability of habitat organizations, their future, and their goals. In these changing times, we all make adjustments. RGS/AWS is no different. As hunter conservationists, we all need to double down on our efforts. The big picture is not what we have done, but what we can do!!!
