Companions at home and in the field.....
I would rather hunt without my shotgun than my dogs.
We have lived with three (so far).
|Tough as barbed wire. An adventurer.... we almost drowned together twice because of Jake's disregard for thin ice. An athlete....so fast he could catch woodcock before they got into the air but he was too undisciplined to make a good team grouse hunter...partly my fault for being naive. Pictured in 1986|
|Solid, steady, a real sweetheart. She figured out all of our quarry: woodcock, ruffed grouse, and pheasant. She was slower than Jake but a perfect match for me. It's too bad pheasants were so scarce in her lifetime. Retired from hunting 2001after being lost for hours in ND and MN. A photo retrospective.|
Samantha (Sam) (1998-2013)
|Speedy Sam can make those bells suffer terrible Doppler shifts. She is smart and has good instincts. She's developing good steadiness on point but retrieving will take some work. First pheasants and grouse in 2001. Pictured May 2000|
"Cousin" Nell (2000-2012)
|"Cousin" Nell, from a MI line of setters, lives with sister Mary et tux, in Grosse Pointe. A bold, smart dog who is destined to be alpha and, with discipline and owners willing, may spend some "productive" time in the Keweenaw bush. Pictured in spring 2001.|

In the mid-content north, where temperatures can vary from +40 to -40o C, grapes are grown only by a few crazy folks. To learn more about those folks see the home page of the Minnesota Grape Growers Association. I have a few French-American hybrids (Foch). Most of the vines are University of Minnesota developed hybrids from Elmer Swenson's work: Kay Gray, La Crosse, St. Pepin, St. Croix, and numbered selections ES5-3-78, ES3-24-7.... I tried a number of other varieties like Valiant, Beta, Edelweiss, Niagara, Concord, .....but they either died or weren't good for wine.
Here's a short picture tour:
