TSC designed this ad for friend Frank LaNasa, breeder, trainer and handler of some very fine pointers and setters too! The ad appeared in the 2012 American Field Christmas Edition.

TSC continues to work with our good friends Jerry and Betsy from Northwoods Bird Dogs creating their Christmas cards and Note cards for their correspondence. The photos were taken in October 2011 in Minnesota.

We are pleased to announce the launching of the new Strideaway website after a year of redesign and redevelopment! The new custom WordPress site offers the most comprehensive archive of information, stories, articles, podcast interviews and rich imagery specifically about American Field/AFTCA field trials for pointers and setters. We moved over 200 articles from the […]

Alas, I have been negligent doing the same for The Sportsman’s Cabinet. So it’s time to get my own News page caught up. The summer has kept us busy, primarily with […]

While in Tennessee last month, I had the opportunity of visiting my good friends and clients, Jerry Kolter and Betsy Danielson of Northwoods Bird Dogs. Jerry and Betsy spend part of the winter training dogs far from the frozen midwest in Atwood, about an hour and a half east of Grand Junction. I was at […]

The month of January of the Quail Forever 2012 Calendar features a photo I took in 2008 at Erin Kennels in Illinois. The setter, Dee, pointed a huge covey of quail that exploded as Sean Derrig approached to flush. Though she can barely be seen in the tall grass, there’s just enough of her showing […]

Birds are flighty at this, the end of grouse season in Maine. Kit’s bird did not try to outrun her but shot up like a canon out of a rocket and was gone so fast I barely caught a glimpse of it. We had three solid months of grouse hunting this past fall…among the best […]
