Two whistles and a compass: Bird hunting guide Durrell Smith talks dogs, bobs, chukars and public access
Why didn't we talk sooner? Durrell Smith is an Orvis-endorsed guide, fine artist, dog man, podcaster and probably a lot of other things we never got around to in this wide-ranging discussion. We'll cover his tips on accessing more public land to hunt, dog behavior and some stellar moments from this season. We also hear a touching story of three generations of quail hunters, how to read habitat and why to seek out the ugly stuff. Hunting strategies and essential gear he takes with him are also on the docket.
We'll share our thoughts on what constitutes a long shot in the field and why ... and I've got one last warm-weather late-season destination for you.
