Mike is the Southeast Regional Development Director for the Ruffed Grouse Society/American Woodcock Society and is currently based in North Carolina. He’s sharing some great stories about the unique grouse and woodcock hunting opportunities in the southern Appalachians, bird hunting in the upper Midwest, and his volunteer work with North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA)

We share some tips for people who have an interest in bird dogs, but don’t really know how to get started.
