Lovin the podcasts, way to go. You asked for ideas on how to not be so exhausted (both dogs and people) doing this in five days. I have and idea. Why not add one more person, probably a woman, split up the guys and be in two states. Then each team could alternate days . You would hunt one day and report the next day(not hunt). That would let you rest dogs every other day and you could do your reporting after breakfast instead of at midnight! Probably need another camera guy too right? But think of the possibilities... it could even be a little competition. ... pointers in one state, flushers in another? People could vote on which state will produce the most birds? If you do add another woman from the PF team I'd like to suggest Rachel Hovland. She's got a great drahthaar and she's unbelievably good with a shotgun.
