Drive south! Snowbird hunting destinations … and hunters’ hacks to make life easy for you and your bird dog
If you're not already, many of you (and me) will soon be sick and tired of cold temperatures and snow and ice. If you're lucky, you can migrate south. I've got some suggestions on general destinations for bird hunting where the ground is clear and a light jacket might be just enough. (It's heavy on the West because that's where I go) but there should be a starting point for almost everyone.
There's also a dozen or so tips and tricks I've picked up from pro guides, seasoned hunters and dog handlers ... plus a few of my own that could save you time, money, and aggravation. From water storage to travel hacks, you might learn something of use on your next hunting trip.
I'll also offer an alternative to pricey dog boots, too, in the "Handle It" segment.
