Hosted by
Nick Larson

Nick Larson is the host and creator of the Birdshot Podcast. He and his family, which includes a pair of English setters, reside in Minnesota where he grew up and fell in love with the outdoors. Naturally, his favorite pursuit is upland bird hunting dating back 25+ years from his humble beginnings as a “partridge” hunter. Today, he chases adventure across the uplands wherever his bird dogs and the people he connects with inspire him to go.

Hear how two Ruffed Grouse Society members have planned a day of upland hunter education and training for those looking to expand their knowledge of grouse and woodcock hunting.

Tom McPherson and Tommy Launer have at least two things in common. They love gun dogs and they love hunting ruffed grouse and American woodcock. While both are at varying stages of their upland hunting journey, they both have a desire to share their knowledge and pay it forward to others seeking guidance. Enter the Ruffed Grouse Society Future Hunters and Handlers Day aimed at providing upland hunter education and training to new hunters and bird dog handlers.
