Upland Nation

Himalayan snowcock to the chachalaca … he’s shot every single North American upland game bird. Better cellphone photos, giving back, your Opening Day, and Oklahoma public access.

August 26, 2021

Bird hunting podcast: From America's least-hunted bird on the summit of Ruby Dome, to a bird whose name is harder to pronounce than it is to shoot ... photographer/author Gary Kramer takes us on a continent-wide adventure in pursuit of every upland game bird. He personally chased and photographed - with a hunter's eye - every single one of them. His book GAME BIRDS - A Celebration of North American Upland Birds is the ultimate hunter's reference and conversation-starter. You can get it here.

Gary helps us take better photos with our cellphone, of birds, the habitat and our dogs, offering tips and advice that will make every nimrod a better "shooter." Oh, we'll also debrief his recent Amazon-basin fly fishing trip just for fun!

We look at lesser-known public-access ground in Oklahoma, get your thoughts on Opening Day (yay!), cover news you can use from a bright spot on the crowded fields we might be anticipating to another way for you to pay it forward and the entire podcast is brought to you by:
