Opening day 2023 for Montana upland hunters will arrive in 38 days. Many upland hunters spend their offseason tuning up their hunting dogs for the fall excursions.
Training dogs is a fantastic way to get them in shape physically and mentally. Working steadiness drills pays dividends in the September prairies. Marking drills help dogs find shot birds efficiently. This can be especially difficult in the wide open landscapes that huns and sharpies haunt.
As the temps hit 100 degrees across Montana hunting may seem a long time away. Thirty-eight days will pass in a flash.
