    Default Bird Dog and Handlers Needed !

    It's that time of year again.

    2020 Flushing Survey flyer.pdf (141 KB)

    Good Afternoon,

    We are excited to announce our annual flushing survey for 2020. We’ll be flushing the Central Susquehanna WPRA on Sunday February 23rd at 1300 (please see attached flyer). The information gleaned from these surveys is crucial in helping determine future management of the wild pheasant recovery program. We can’t do these without the dedicated volunteers who give of their own valuable time and resources. At this point in time, we have selected one date. Dependent on how many teams we accrue, we may complete additional surveys during the week, but we will provide a separate flyer as those opportunities arise.
    As a quick reminder, some things to bring along:

    A good bird dog if available
    Waterproof boots
    Proper outer ware for warmth and brush
    Water & food to stay hydrated and for energy
    A fluorescent orange hat to assist in maintaining lines

    Please follow instructions on the flyer when RSVPing and provide all of the requested information as this will be crucial in pre-planning as well as weather cancellations. It’s easiest to just reply to this email. All replies are due by the end of the day on February 21st for the survey, (emails are preferred but you can also call in). If there are any changes, I will make sure we get those out ASAP so keep an eye on your email as we approach the day of. Again, we are grateful for your support of this important program, and look forward to seeing you in the field!

    Thanks so much,

    -Tom Keller

    P.S. – Please feel free to forward this announcement to any interested parties or personnel that I may have missed due to the large amount of recipients.

    How “good” does a good bird dog need to be ?

    Dave,

    There are all levels of dogs that attend, some well seasoned and some at the beginner level. As long as your dog listens to basic commands he will be welcome and no one will judge you , it's a very friendly atmosphere !
