Bird hunting podcast: opera and bird dogs … ptarmigan hunting, public-access spot, your doggy dreams and what they mean

September 9, 2021

How a beautiful dog in the field is like an operatic aria ... and other poetic observations. Those are part of this week's interview with Alaska hunter Christine Cunningham as we explore her state's iconic birds, the three species of ptarmigan.

From habitat to tactics, the joys of a household with eight dogs, uniquely Alaskan hunting challenges, Chris covers the vast spaces where ptarmigan dwell, rocky crags and spongy tundra and most of it home to brown bears!

Chris is an artist with words - in print and on this podcast - so get ready to be inspired by her descriptions of our shared lifestyle.

We also find out who mentored most of us, take a look at news and controversy over duck stamps, visit a public-access spot in Kansas, and learn what your dream about hunting dogs really means and the entire podcast is brought to you by:
