"Shady Meadows Gundogs grew out of our passion to hunt behind beautiful, well disciplined, hard working hunting dogs. Like most people, we started with 1 dog, a classy orange and white female Elhew pointer. From there, our passion for watching the dogs work has grown. We started with staying in a lodge in north central Kansas, hunting with family and friends on private land and wild birds. We always came back to the lodge with more birds than the lodge's paying hunters on the lodge's land on wild and released birds. They finally talked me into guiding for them and that was the start of the business side of hunting.
Working on pen raised birds under the supervision of someone who knew nothing about hunting got old quick, so I struck out on my own and soon had clients from Georgia to California hunting only wild birds. As the numbers of clients grew, so did the need to have more hunting dogs to keep fresh ones on the ground at all times. That, combined with clients wanting to buy the guide dogs and puppies out of them, brought into existence Shady Meadows Gundogs."
