Exploring field trials, bird dogs and The Gun Dog Notebook Podcast with Durrell Smith.
I want him to get out there and stay out there. If I can get him over 250 yards consistently in front of the horse. At that point in time it’s between God, the birds and the dog, I’ve got nothing to do with it.Durrell Smith
Steeped in history and at times cloaked in mystery, the world of field trialing can be a tough nut to crack. Attend events, ask questions and offer to help are words of advice often given to people seeking exposure to field trials. As a relative newcomer to bird dogs and field trials, our guest has done just that and has begun to share some of his experiences via his podcast.
Joined by Durrell Smith of The Gun Dog Notebook Podcast, our conversation covers what makes Durrell tick as a bird dog and upland hunting enthusiast. A recent shift in the direction of The Gun Dog Notebook Podcast is highlighted along with its origin story, inspirations and transformation to the podcast it is today.
Tune in to this episode of the Project Upland Podcast to learn more about The Gun Dog Notebook Podcast and Durrell’s journey into the world of bird dogs and field trials.
