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.

Various ruffed grouse hunters join the show to recount their experience encountering wolves with their bird dogs.

Show Highlights:

  • Ted Koehler wolf encounter in Wisconsin
  • Joe Parpala wolf encounter in Minnesota
  • Mike Amman wolf encounter in Wisconsin
  • Ted Sommer wolf encounter in Wisconsin
  • A follow up interview coming next week on the GDIY podcast

  • Nick this episode was awesome! And helpful. Like you, and your contributors, I hunt in wolf country -northern WI. I see the sign, I’ve had my dog come running back to me with his tail tucked! But, what are ya gonna do? Gotta hunt. I even had an APHIS trapper tell me not to hunt in that area.
