Becoming Famous

Second Shot has been established for about two years now and it feels like the ‘big break’ is happening. Being a fairly small organization ‘big’ is a relative word. More organizations and people have reached out to get involved or do a story on what we’re up to than ever before. Read More

A ‘How To’ Guide for Dog Tricks

Tricks that I have taught them!

What my dog means to me

This is a guest blog by ‘A Bird Hunter’s Thoughts’ author, Randy Schultz. We thank him for his insight and expertise on bird hunting. To read more of his blogs you can visit his website at www.abirdhuntersthoughts.com.

I never considered I would be stumped by a question about how I felt about my bird dogs! I pondered a bit, then considered some, and slid easily into some contemplation, but I couldn’t get a handle on ‘what my dog means to me’!

My personal experience meeting and spending a short weekend with Chris Gallegos was nothing short of inspiring. For over a year Chris was in and out of the hospital not knowing what was making him so sick. After traveling to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota from New Mexico the doctors discovered that he had leukemia.

What a beautiful February weekend it was in Riverside, Iowa; perfect setting for a pheasant hunt. With the help of volunteers, family members, 6 dogs, Highland Hideaway Hunting reserve and our wonderful client, Dylan, I’d say we had a very successful hunt.

A Potentially Overwhelming Process Made Easy

By Reid Wilson

How to easily buy shotgun shells from an older man

Walking into the ammunition aisle for the first time is overwhelming. I remember it and I remember yesterday when it still was. All the aisle said to me was, “Hi I have boxes that look very similar.

Father Showed Me Family

This was originally published as a guest post on Randy Schultz’s blog, A Bird Hunter’s Thoughts. A real honor for the writer and for Second Shot.

Nellie and Zeus, my two energetic labs, ran to the middle of the field where the pheasant fell from the sky after Chris shot his first bird of the day; a silly grin plastered across his face.
