Bird Dog Basics -- Free Hunting Talk at Fish and Game
CONCORD, N.H. -- Discover the rewards of upland bird hunting with your best friend at the free talk "Bird Dog Basics" on Wednesday, September 12, 2007, from 7- 8:30 p.m. at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord. David Trahan of On Point Kennel will share his insights on bird dog training and hunting fundamentals, from puppy basics to "finished" hunting dogs. No pre-registration is needed -- just show up. Come early to get a good seat.
Trahan will cover the finer points of the "whoa" command, "steady to flush" and retrieval, demonstrating with his newest canine companion, along with his seasoned hunting partner. Topics include flushing dogs and pointing dogs. Trahan runs a business selling versatile premium-quality dog training equipment. He works dogs every day, using the equipment they sell; he also provides training for hunting dogs.
N.H. Fish and Game Small Game Project Leader Julie Robinson will also be on hand to talk about ongoing surveys for grouse and woodcock and insights on where to find these challenging birds.
The Bird Dog Basics talk is part of a series of free Wednesday evening hunting talks being offered by Fish and Game this fall featuring hunting experts and Fish and Game biologists. "I'm in the market for a bird dog puppy, so I am definitely going to be there to find out what I'm getting into!" says Mark Beauchesne, who is coordinating the talks for Fish and Game.
