A 13-year-old vizsla’s journey back to the uplands after a battle with cancer and a surgery that left him with three legs.
Lifelong bird hunter and professional photographer, Rich Wong (aka @wisc_me_nord) joins the show to talk about his upland hunting story. As Rich recently shared in an article he wrote for Project Upland Magazine, his father introduced him to the joys of hunting at a young age. From there, Rich’s love for the outdoors and bird dogs blossomed into a full blown passion for upland hunting today. Accompanied by his 13-year-old vizsla, Hunter, Rich spends most of his time chasing grouse and woodcock in the northwoods as well as pheasants and prairie grouse to the west. At 12 years old, Hunter was diagnosed with cancer and eventually lost a leg to the disease but that didn’t prevent him from spending another season in the uplands with Rich.
