Well this past Fathers Day I had to do something that I have been dreading for the past 15 and a half years. I didn't know about the hunt test games when I got Max. I bought him when I was in 5th grade, my dad and I trained him to be our gundog. Max was full time in the field until he was almost 14 (December Birthday). Max and I got a lot of my buddies into hunting, most of them now have their own pups after watching how much fun we had. I wish I would've kept track of how many retrieves he had throughout his career but I found an awesome way to honor him. Man's Best Friend Custom Calls put together this call for me. I sent him the image I wanted in the call and then he took some of Max's ashes and inlaid them into the band of the call. I two for myself and one for my dad, these calls honestly left me speechless. I have seen these calls in person before but it's completely different when it's your hunting partner that you have one made for. Brandon Knopf and the Iowa Hunting Products/Mans Best Friend team did an absolutely incredible job and I figured some other folks might appreciate his work. I am currently putting together a display case for the call and will have it sitting in my office alongside many pictures of us together.
