It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Ben in winterWe knew the glorious days of fall couldn’t last forever. And now that the snow has arrived, the time has come to turn our thoughts towards Christmas. You’ve stocked the freezer with pheasants, ducks and geese, ready to feast with family and friends. Ah, but what about presents for under the tree? You might check out the offerings from any one of the NAVHDA sponsors, such as Garmin, Ugly Dog Hunting, or Purina Proplan. Lots there to cheer the heart of a hunter or dog.

But the very best place to start is right here at home. Wild Rose Chapter 2016 memberships are now available for purchase. A whole year’s worth of training, fun, and fellowship. It’s a gift the whole family will love!

Good training = good hunting

It’s been a productive hunting season for many Wild Rose club members. Always a good indication that something is going right with one’s training program! Here’s a sampling of fun in the field this fall:
