Did you, your children, or family member recently get their first kill this season? Whether your first kill is a game bird, deer, or even bear. Send us a picture with a little story. We will feature you on our buck’s blog as well as send you a LCS First Kill Certificate and LCS decal.
Please send all first kill photos and stories to email@example.com.
Thank you and happy hunting,
Pictured above is Randy Barger with a monster Pennsylvania archery whitetail. Randy is a former LCS employee and lifelong friend. He cooks the pigs for our annual customer appreciation Bird Dog Days event. He has a side job as a butcher shop here in central Pennsylvania. His letterhead reads, “Can’t beat Randy’s meat”. He does a great job. He sent me this photo of this Pennsylvania buck he just butchered with a 20 and 1/2 inside spread. My biggest is 13 and 1/2. I can’t sit still!
Please LCS hunters, send us your hunt success photos and a little story to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them on my blog and send you a LCS sticker for your truck.
My longtime friend attorney Tom Schaffer Jr sent this photo of his son Trey’s first pheasant. Congratulations Trey. I’m so glad you’re following in your dads footsteps. He’s a dynamic individual as was your grandpap. I’ll send you a present from LCS to commemorate it!
Tom is a serious bird dog man and raises beautiful hard hunting Gordon Setters. He hunts Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virgina. In lots of George Bird Evens old sports. I’ll join him in Canann Valley for a woodcock hunt next week.
Thank you Tom and Try. See you both next week!
This past week I got the chance to get into the woods with my dogs for some woodcock hunting. I had a successful few days, but with the woodcock also came ticks. My dogs must have got into a nest of them because Trey (aka Lucky III) was absolutely covered in hundreds of ticks as seen in the video below. I highly recommend keeping our LCS Flea and Tick Comb with your hunting gear and comb down your dogs after each hunt.
John Koritko, the owner of Lion Country Supply, is selling his 2004 Toyota Tacoma Twin cam V6 SR5 truck with an 6 hole truck topper. Asking for $15,000 for both.
2004 Toyota Tacoma twim cam V6 SR5 with the TRD off road package. Four wheel drive and automatic. Truck has 153,000 miles. No rust with new frame and suspension, which was recently replaced by Toyota during a frame/suspension recall. Bought it new.

This truck topper was custom built for Lion Country Supply’s owner by Jones Trailers of Texas. We will consider selling the Dog Box Topper only. Would be $12,000 brand new!
Contact Lion Country Supply at 1-800-662-5202. For serious offers, will arrange to meet at Lion Country Supply store front to view truck and topper.
Thank you to guide, Dennis Kavanaugh, of Montana Bird Hunts. He was completely booked but was very kind to me. When calling to book a hunt, he quickly returned my call and started by saying he loves my Lion County Supply, my humble beginnings story, and our catalog. He has been a customer for years and loves the people and service.
He offered to buy me dinner and a room if I would come by Big Timber, which I did. I had the pleasure of hanging out with him, his clients, and LCS customers.
He made my trip. Thank you, Dennis.
I received bad news from my friends at Hypointe kennel this week. My friend Nick Mellon called to tell me that his dog, Buck, passed away suddenly on Wednesday. He was a 2 1/2 year old finished Lion Country Setter. Just found dead in the kennel, possible heart attack.
I feel really bad for Nick and Valerie who loved him, trained him, and took great care of him. I haven’t sold any of my setters in 20 years and it was a gift to them and they trained his brother Trey for me, also. Trey, aka “I’m Lucky Three”; is a tricolor will be will be my cover boy when his dad Deuce is gone.
I’m sorry to hear of his passing, he was nice! RIP!
Good news, I’d like to offer Nick and Valerie his sister, I call her wild Lilly. She is a hard tail cracking, speed type, like her mother. A super smart bird finder and loves to point. Nick and Valerie she is yours if you want her. Maybe she can carry on the Lion Country line. I currently have 5 setters which is getting to be too many for me. I’m probably not going to breed any more.
Myself and the staff at Lion Country Supply would like to wish my good friend Ed Radar a happy 80th birthday. I’ve met Ed at wild wings to shoot quail the last 2 years. Wild Wings has the closest thing to wild birds that I’ve ever seen. Several thousand acres of wild, supplemented cover and lots of big coveys hold well for your dog and flush hard. Break open guns only, but double shotguns this is my favorite place for no limit shooting.
Dogmen, Wild Wings owner tracey Leiske, now has a 12 bird trainer package that’s very affordable. It’s the best way to prepare your pointing dogs for wild coveys in western states. They learn to really hold and smell that’s there’s more. Fun stuff but whoa break em first. Belly collar to stop on their flanks. Ed adds a neck collar for handling. His dogs are straight up on both ends and a sight to walk in on as you can see from these photos.
This year as a 65th birthday present to me I’m heading to Montana in September and then Texas and Arizona. I hope to do a better job sharing my bird hunts on here.
