    Hunting with Hank

    Upland Days With Dez And Dash was a very good show, as well. Dez sang the show's theme song, "Upland Days Are On My Mind"; I find myself singing that song to myself in the off season or when I'm dealing with some personal problem far removed from the simple pleasure of bird hunting with my Chesapeake.

    Topwater

    I really enjoy fishing spooks for a number of species. I recall some really epic topwater bites. Lots of fun!

    Hunting with Hank

    I met Hank and Dez once and have a good friend that guided him bird hunting in NE Oregon. I didn't watch his show so I can offer no opinion on it. IIRC, Hank was a Llew.

    Hunting with Hank

    I remember Hank saying, "never ever spoil your bird dog." Great TV show back in the day! Brittman

    Swimming in the little mountain lake on a steekin' hot, humid July day: Nancy taking a break by the lake from our dog run in the heat: Dogs pasted to Nancy yesterday in the observation deck as some tropic storm inundated us with heavy rain all day. They were watching the deer behind the house in the rain: Some of the soggy deer:

    I will throw topwater all day long just to see one good blow up.

    So Dave, moving on to lighten things up, how's your search going for a new dog??

    Hunting with Hank

    I started bird hunting in the late 1950's so the show didn't influence me, but I thought it was really good in that it showed hunting in a positive light, unlike all the high-fiving, "rack 'em and stack 'em" crap that would turn any uninvolved person of normal sensibilities completely off. One thing I learned from that show was to never spoil your birddog.... Here I am hardening Joy with ice cream from Dairy Queen on a MT trip. Here she is being hardened in the MH during a howling MT blizzard:

    Yep...that show lit the passion...really enjoyed it at the time but wonder how I'd see it today based on my experiences since then?

    I watched Dez's show every week. I sure miss those days.

    Hunting with Hank

    Loved the show. Discovered it a few years after getting my first two Llewellins and Dez and Hank seemed to exemplify the kind of hunting I most enjoyed. Spoke to Dez on the phone once. Can’t remember why. I just remember him being a gentleman.

    Hunting with Hank

    Most of the shows I saw he was hunting liberated birds, but Hank was great and Dez was a gentleman. Later in the scheme of things he was carrying a Merkel. The show continued with Hanks off spring for a while as well. I am friends with Dez on Facebook. He seems to be a good fellow. PS. I loved the show even though didnt have a dog at the time. I think hank was a Llew, but I could be wrong.

    was the best bird hunting...heck any hunting...show i've seen.
  18. 1950 Willys. Still pickin'um up and puttin'um down. Selby has probably ridden in it with his hunting buddy who owns it. A real classic for sure.

    Hunting with Hank

    Dez has DVD’s of all his shows. I think he has a FB page you could order from. I've got a 4 DVD set of his shows that my wife gave me as a BD present.

    Hunting with Hank

    I've heard a lot about Hunting with Hank, but never seen the program. Can a person find (haven't looked) them on the internet? DVD's, maybe?

    Hunting with Hank

    I liked that show and also met Dez at a Pheasants Forever event years ago. Mailed him after he lost Hank, he responded immediately, a very nice man. Remember: "Never spoil your bird dog".

    Going to be some photo opportunities here too. How to see the comet The comet, which has a bright opulent tail, has been putting on a stunning show in the early hours before sunrise in the Northern Hemisphere. Astrophotographers have captured breathtaking images of the comet, as have astronauts aboard the International Space Station. But late sleepers need not worry — the comet will start appearing in the evening, just after sunset, starting Saturday. To view it, people in the Northern Hemisphere can look to the northwestern sky, just below Ursa Major, commonly known as the Big Dipper constellation. Scientists say the comet will be visible across the Northern Hemisphere for about another month. In conditions with little light pollution, it may be visible with the naked eye, but NASA recommends using binoculars or a telescope to spot its long tail.

    Hunting with Hank

    Looking through the man cave I found pictures and memorabilia of early bird hunting . I had notes labeled "Hunting with Hank" . First episode January of 1997 . All you old timers will remember this show . I was an avid bird hunter as a young man but life , responsibilities , job all got priority . I was able to deer hunt for a few days at Camp but the rigors of raising a bird dog and all took a back seat . My Dad loved to bird hunt so a couple times a year i took him to a local preserve to pheasant hunt . Then Hank was produced and it reminded me how special bird hunting was . I bought my first pointer , a GSP , Bleu and off we went . I wanted a Setter but my family was hooked on Bleu the first time we saw him , another story in itself . We took in another rescue GSP a year later and now I'm a real bird hunter again with two dogs . It all started to come together . My daughter was a three sport athlete and recruited to Colby College . She played field hockey (center mid) in the Fall and softball (SS) in the Spring . Colby is in Waterville , Me . Just west was The Forks . Long weekends seeing games in the afternoon and hunting in the morning . I was living large . Dez even started my SxS addiction buying my first a Browning BSS . I think that's what he used or some similar Miroku gun . Dez was as passionate a man about his dogs as I was and so I really could relate . I did meet him one day at a gun show , a pleasure to talk to . I'm sure I would have traveled down this road again without Dez and Hank but thankfully they were there at that time when I needed them most .

    Roasting coffee beans

    I read an article on MSN about an 86 year old French woman in Paris trying a hamburger for the first time in her life (she liked it!) but she refused American coffee and called it "jus de chaussette" or sock juice, such as what you'd squeeze from your wet socks after you get your feet wet.
