CONCORD, NH — Learn how to reach your bag limit during this fall’s pheasant season at a free seminar with Wes Reed and Scott Rouleau on Thursday, September 27, at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH. The talk begins at 7 p.m. No pre-registration is required.

Wes Reed will discuss the value of a retriever for recovering downed game, and the training process required to prepare a dog for the field and a driven pheasant hunt. Scott Rouleau will talk about hunting tactics that incorporate a dog as well as strategies for hunting without canine support, the nature of the bird, essential gear, and where to successfully hunt pheasant in New Hampshire.

Whether hunting or running retriever hunt tests, Reed can be seen with his dogs in the woods and  waters around New England year round.
