Jeff, just saw your message. Glad to hear you had a great trip. I don't know John Blackbird. I am a member of Pin Oak HRC. Touch base next year and maybe we can get together and kill a drake!
Paul- I see your from Pocahontas, AR. I hunted DD in mid January for the first time. You have a special place there! Met some great local folks and can't wait until next year. Been coming to AR for about 14 yrs now. I'm from MN. Do you happen to know John Blackbird? John's pretty active in the hunt test game. I bought a dog from John a couple years ago.
Regards- Jeff Smith
