It's our somewhat-regular "Industry Insiders" edition, where I talk with leaders and up-and-comers about the business of bird hunting, their company, new products and tech. We also get their advice on taking care of our gear, our dogs, and ourselves. Oh, and these guys are also experts on bird hunting so expect some valuable tips.
This week, Fred Bohm of Sage & Braker talks new gun care gear, field-care for our shotguns, and desert quail hunting. This guy lives in the hotbed, Southern Arizona, and earned his spurs by climbing the hills and battling the cholla cactus for elusive Mearns, Gambel's and scaled quail. Phil Francone is the president and founder of Meindl USA, bringing that legacy brand of boots to America. Phil helps us with everything from fitting boots and breaking them in, to care for this most important component of your hunting ensemble. He also spills the beans on a brand-new boot model.
"Handle It" covers some helpful puppy-care stuff you may not have thought about, and you listeners weigh in with how your dogs are doing so far this season.
