Versatile Hunting Dog Mag

Postby todwith1d » Sat Feb 16, 2008 8:34 pm

I've only been a member of NAVHDA for a year but I have not found the Versatile Hunting Dog Mag to have much training info. I like reading it but I think it has a different mission.

It appears to be more like a DU or QU magazine. You know. What chapters are doing, where is the organization going.... that kind of stuff.

The articles by the vets are very good.

Whew--the Pointing Dog Journal is more about a lot of high priced stuff than anything else. They're in another economic world from what I know. The only guys I know that can buy those guns have never hunted a wild bird in their lives.

I canceled my subscription to PDJ a few years ago, and I haven't missed it at all. The VHD takes me about 30 seconds to flip through before I toss it.

Good luck trying to get a lot of training advise out of a magazine article. No matter how good of a job the author does, the editor comes along and hacks it up to make it fit in the page.
