Because we're Waterfowler's too!

Waterfowl hunters are a different breed.  We nervously watch weather forecasts with the anticipation of a child at Christmas.  We get out of warm beds at ridiculous hours to spend dawn in cold pits, dank blinds, or thigh-deep water in some lonely timber hole, praying to see those ghostly silhoutes in the sky and hear the tell-tale flutter of wingbeats.  We live for the smell of spent shotgun shells and thick muck, and for the opportunity to bring home a limit of Greenheads.  For many of us, the time spent afield is the greatest reward, and sharing that  time with our Retriever companions makes it all worthwhile.  We understand...because we're waterfowler's too, and we know exactly what it takes for a Retriever to be your capable wingman.
