I ran into this guy who has the dream job. Imagine getting all your dogs around you, that's dogs as in labs, spaniels, short hairs, in other words bird-dogs and taking them out to the field on a beautiful day. This guy's job definition. Taking clients out and finding the birds that the clients want to see. So, a conversation about bird hunting with professional bird hunting guide Denis Hofflander. He 1st discusses pheasant hunting. Go with a pointing dog, you will have a lot of fun with it, it will stand your hair on end, and better yet, a pointing dog that is a versatile hunting dog which means ducks, geese, and if you want to have some real fun, get in a small group, the best is 2 guys in tall switchgrass and you switch on the collar that beeps when there's a point, and you just turn them loose. You listen for the beep beep and when you got it, you get there and there's going to be a bird in front of that dog and the 2nd dog probably has closed in and honored and that the bird in a vice. You might go out and fire 6 rounds and get 6 birds. It's a kick. What is it about duck hunting that you like? Well it's a little bit like flyfishing, there is no limit to how far you can carry it, for example, there will be a guy here this next week, he's from the South, and he just picks up one of those duck calls and he has taken the trouble to know how to make it sing. I would never put one of those things to my mouth with that guy around. The decoying, the calling, it all gets more and more complex the more seriously get or you can be real simple.
