Grandson of Elhew Explorer, Dookie is coming along nicely on his heel/whoa training. Able to drop his lead and walk 20-30 feet and he stays in place. He comes to heel nicely as well. A few more weeks We'll be killing birds over him.

Just took this pic for his birthday.
Happy 15th birthday to my little buddy Hawkeye! The amount of miles we have hunted and trialed on those old bones. All the trophies we hauled home from your amateur trials. The amount of wild birds you pointed and retrieved to my hand. The struggles I had keeping your manners in line. The amount of times you made me want to give you back to Crosswind...... I'm sure glad I kept you. You were one of the toughest dogs I've ever trained, and you were and absolute athlete in a trial. Thanks for all the great hunts and all the friends I met because you were my first pointing dog. Hope you are enjoying retirement laying in my bed. πŸ˜‰ love ya bud!!!

Sad week.... Just found out that Waylon's sire, Blazes Black Magic has passed. One of the best pointers I had ever seen run. He was a 21x Nstra Champion, 2x National Champion, 1x Runner up National Champion, 2x Regional Champion, and 5 years in a row was in the Top Four for the Performance award for all #NSTRA dogs in the country! He was a special animal, and has passed those traits down to his progeny. RIP Jo, you were one Hell of a dog. @chadacalicott sorry for your loss.........

Started whoa/heel breaking the pups this week. 11 months old now, and the few days I've trained them went very well. But they're pointers, that will all change. 😁
The female is ADD she just wants to look around and smell everything. Dookie on the other hand conforms easily and just looks at me like

Should have no problem having these 2 in the grouse woods this fall! #healthyForests #pointerdog #pointeroftheday #pointersofinstagram #pointer_feature #birddogs #birddogsofinstagram #birddogoftheday #blackandwhite #blackmagic #octanepointers #grousedog #grousebum #champion #glory #winner #uplandelite #upland #uplandlowlife #thegrousewhisperer #crowslittlejoe #NSTRA #grousecommander #ruffedgrousesocietysponsor #ruffedgrouse #ruffedgrousesociety #pointingdogs

Proud of this little guy. Gave me 4 great runs this weekend against some of the best dogs in Michigan region. We sat in 1st place most of the day Saturday (4th brace), but got knocked down to second after a seasoned dog took a novice to school in a later brace. One more 1st place and 2 points and he will have his Championship. Seeing the drive, desire and competitiveness in these animals is something I cannot explain to someone unless you have seen them give their all. To see these dogs do what they were bred to do, and enjoy every minute of it is a special feeling. And to share these moments with some of my best and closest #NSTRA friends is the best part of it all.

My buddy Crosswind Gunpowder N Lead, Danner. 40 pounds of run. One of the fastest, most althletic bird dogs I've owned. And at 10 years old, he can still out run most of my pointers. Lol

I wanted to congratulate @bethgsp Nancibeth Koutstaal on her first trial this weekend with her little pointer Gracie (daughter of Waylon). It was the first trial either of them had ever entered, and it was in the open division against some very tough dogs. While she didn't place against the 28 dogs entered, she didn't get beat and held her own with clean 3 bird runs. And she is not even 2 years old yet! You've really brought out that little girls potential as a bird dog. I cant wait to follow her around the grouse woods again this year!
Scott Townsend Jonathon Moore thank you both for helping her out during her first braces as I was judging.
I didn't breed these dogs for the money. I bred them to provide grouse hunters and field trailers an easy to train, snappy, well animated pointers that can handle extreme heat. The poker straight tails are another trait we breed for, along with biddability and canon noses.

Keeping the dogs in shape during the off season. Ran a few dogs in yesterday's trial, today I judged. @_amyjo_townsend_ came out and rode a few braces with me. Always a great conversation with my good friend! We talk about the weirdest stuff, but we are always laughing! Her Dad Scott is one of the best trainers/handlers in the country and the only member in the history of NSTRA to win every single national trial, and most of them he has won multiple times. He has been my dog training mentor for the last 14 or so years. A great family to be a part of!

Just got got this pic from @bethgsp of her and @sclem_86 pointer Gracie. One hell of a bird dog with tons of style! She was out of our first Waylon/Jetta breeding. This gets me excited for the 2 I kept out of the last litter! Cant wait to grouse hunt over her again this fall! #healthyForests

My good buddy @kellen_crow at camp, after a good day in the grouse woods with the grouse magician Black Magic Highwayman (Waylon) I've met some great folks through @ruffedgrousesociety and the dog trialing world. These are the days we live for.

I think the biggest struggle today in hunting and trapping is recruitment and retainment. I've always been open to taking new hunters out, especially over my dogs. I like to think after the last 16 years, spending close to 45 days each grouse season in the woods, I've accumulated a little bit of knowledge of these birds and bird dogs in general. I enjoy passing down what I've learned through trial and lots of error, hopefully shortening the learning curve of the new hunters. Today @kellen_crow gave me this gift for (lack of a better term) mentoring him the last few years. Thanks brother, it truly means a lot to me that you appreciate what I've shared. I cant wait for next fall, so you better be at the sporting clays course a lot this summer. πŸ˜‚

For those that follow me on my personal page @thegrousewhisperer know I'm a serious upland bird hunter and even more serious dog man.
Every year my company sponsors our local Ruffed Grouse Society banquet. My donations last night (custom oil painting by a local artist of the winners dog, travel humidor with 5 aged cuban cigars, and a guided grouse hunt with a fireside dinner) raised over 1000 dollars! The lab in the painting was my lab I had commissioned and the reference 8x10. Always a great time at the Greater Southeast Michigan RGS banquet!

We have some damn good micro breweries here in #puremichigan. However while my wife was on holiday in Alabama she picked me up a 6 pack of @folklorebrewing #Snipehunt. Id put this against two hearted any day (which is my favorite IPA) tons of malt, bright grapefuity happiness and a smooth finish. Wish she got me a case!

Prepping for the upcoming regionals and the nationals. Roaded 10 miles, swam for 20 minutes and then shot a few birds over him. This dog never ceases to amaze the hell out of me.......thanks @bethgsp and @sclem_86 for coming out and taking a few pics!

#tbt to November 3rd, 2013. The last grouse I shot over my shorthair Hawkeye. He pointed this bird 4 times before I was offered a shot. I knew it would be his last, as his hearing was failing. A direct son of 16xCH 3x National CH Crosswind Truckin' Fritz, he was the definition of a tough as nails bird dog. He was an absolute athlete that had tons of bottom end. He could trial back to back 30 minute braces in 90 degree heat and just keep digging in. He was the first dog I put an amateur Championship on, and he did it in a summer. Hawkeye was a hard headed dog, that tested my patience as a young trainer every day. I screwed up many a times training this dog but it never affected him. Today at 14 years old, he still has a ton of energy, but is almost completely deaf. He's enjoying retirement........

Still one of my favorite pics of the 2 original bird dogs. 1x amCH Windy Ridge Hawkeye and the notorious Mr. Big. Two totally different animals, but both deadly in the grouse woods. Hawkeye is 14 now, Big passed away in 2014 at 10 years old. The amount of birds that ended at the tip of that cold black nose was noteworthy. Miss you buddy........

Still one of my favorite pics of the 2 original bird dogs. 1x amCH Windy Ridge Hawkeye and the notorious Mr. Big. Two totally different animals, but both deadly in the grouse woods. Hawkeye is 14 now, Big passed away in 2014 at 10 years old. The amount of birds that ended at the tip of that cold black nose was noteworthy.

This week we are going to take a look back at #campgrousewhisperer through the lens of none other than Dave Veldman from @sportdogphoto
Dave was kind enough to offer this beautiful collection of pics while he joined us in the grouse woods. This is one of many perks of having Dave follow you around with a camera. Beautiful work as always my friend. 1st picture is the cover, second is me loving up on my little boy Danner. @ruffedgrousesociety
