OnX Maps Blog Post

I recently wrote a blog post for OnX Hunt Maps on bird dog emergency field care. The piece can be found here OnX Hunt Maps Blog. The OnX Hunt Maps App is the most useful application that I have on my phone when it comes to chasing my bird dogs. I use their app daily…it’s…

Upland Ways Happenings

The Arkansas River basin snow pack is at 140 percent this year and our winter isn’t over just yet.  We’re in that in-between season waiting patiently for the snow to melt and turkey to return to their leks and the caddis to hatch.  Andy was recently featured on the Orvis’ Hunting & Shooting Podcast with…

The Trout & The Grouse

I recently wrote a guest blog post on The Trout & The Grouse Journal. It’s that transition time of the year.  I’m mourning the loss of the upland gunning season and look forward to chasing gobbling turkeys and rising trout.  Hope you enjoy!   Setter Feathers!

White-tailed Ptarmigan Hunting Colorado Style

It’s been a glorious fall so far here in colorful Colorado.  We’ve been several times into the grouse woods this September in search of blues and mountain sharptails…we’re seeing birds and getting good dog work but I have yet to fire a shell.  My dogs have had some great points and my FB English cocker…

Double Guns and Colorado Merriam’s Turkeys

It was a strange year in the Colorado high country turkey woods. There was very little snow in the high country, so I expected the birds to arrive to their lek earlier than years past. So not true! I learn this year that the birds follow the green-up and not necessarily the snow melt. The…

Colorado Grouse Camp 2017

Smoke and heat was the theme for our annual Colorado grouse camp this year.   High above the Colorado river is where I started my day off…but not a single bird was located before the temps hit into the mid 80’s.  Surprisingly, this area has been very productive in the past but that day we…

Colorado Mountain Merriam’s Turkeys 

One of my favorite outdoor pursuits is chasing turkeys in the high country during their spring breeding season. Merriam’s are Colorado natives and they inhabit some beautiful country…country that also has my greenbacks, another Coloradoan.  It’s taken me 12 years of trial and error (& being schooled) but I now know where they’ll be during…
