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.

Pro trainer and co-producer of the Upland Institute video series, Justin McGrail, joins the show for listener Q & A.

Show Highlights:

  • Justin’s season recap so far
  • What Justin looks for in early bird dog development and natural ability
  • When a dog hunts for itself versus hunting for the hunter
  • What to do when the desire to chase outweighs the desire to point…
