Podcast 30: Interview with Jerry Kolter

Thanks to Jerry Kolter for this interview last winter. This is our first podcast delivered from our new home in Southwest Georgia. That puts us square in the heart of wild quail country. We hope to bring our audience many more podcasts from this rich region of bird dog knowledge!

Ruffed Grouse
Still the “Gold Standard” at Northwood’s Bird Dogs. Every species of wild bird present unique difficulties but to many, the ruffed grouse is the most challenging at getting successfully handled by a bird dog.

Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present — amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend, Bill Allen who passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loving family on January 25, 2022 at the age of 96. We will miss him but he left us the greatest of gifts, his wonderful writings in a book we published for the 3rd time in 2021: The Unforgettables and Other True Fables.
