BELL CURVE

Field and Stream - - CAMPFIRE - —T.D.

When your dog is swal­lowed up by heavy cover, his bell be­comes your eyes. It not only tells you his lo­ca­tion and di­rec­tion of travel, but whether he’s work­ing scent or if he’s just flushed a bird. "Us­ing a bell is a win-win,” says guide and pro­fes­sional trainer Steve Gross­man of Lit­tle Mo­ran Grouse Lodge in Min­nesota (prairiew­ingslodge.com). "The fewer prairiew­ingslodge.com com­mands you give your dog, the more confidently he’ll hunt. And the less noise you make as a han­dler, the more ap­proach­able those grouse will be.”
