Good Morning Missouri

15 Below Goose Hunt

Natural Born Hunters

By PJ Maguire Some dogs have it, and some dogs don’t. Usually it is instincts that separate the great gundogs from the rest. Selecting a gundog from good lineage is typically the best way to ensure that your pup will hunt. I have found that there are some exceptions to this rule, good and bad. [...]

The Year of the Juvies

My phone rang from a good buddy of mine who just got back from hunting Canada in September. “Chris, you’re not going to believe the amount of juvies!” If you’re a snow goose hunter, I’m sure you’ve heard this a few times or at least variations of it. This is a call a guy loves [...]
