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!

    It really makes me mad when my multi media guys
    Don’t remove this required website field. My friend and customers don’t have websites. Is there anyone out there that help with fixing things like this? Please email me mr buck owner of lion country supply. Dogmen who like writing are also needed. Thank you ……buck

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.

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.

We haven’t been hearing much from Mr. Buck lately, he was been hunting on the “Montana Bird Dog Trail”. We have been getting a few updates here and there via pictures. Here are some of the highlights.

Hypointe Kennel Setter Buck

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.

    Buck! We are saddened by Lion Country’s Bucks passing. He was a dog that we enjoyed very much. He was one of the dogs on our guide string. Val was close to him and he was her pal. He was in South Carolina this past winter and became part of the family.
    We are making plans to come and see you. Maybe this weekend. Thank You very much. Nick Mellon

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.

Deuce and Rosa

It’s been almost a year since my buddy Deuce went blind. I’m still amazed how good he looks. I know we all love our dogs and see them as extra special. That’s just love.

At 14, Deuce became blind and developed Cushing disease, but is still happy as can be. He still walks around my fenced in acre of woods every day and even finds the plastic kiddie pool and takes a dip. He points the quail that haven’t entered the recall pen. See him hunting and pointing in the field I wonder how he stays so happy (see the video below of him pointing and retrieving birds). He is an amazing dog.

    Vet said my 7 yr old setter will go b long due to her corneal determination. The thought of it makes me so sad but I will love and care for her. Is it hard on your baby?
