Podcast Ep. 114: A Love Story that Starts with a Bird Dog

Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by Amanda & Andy Doak for the story about how they fell in love through a mutual affiliation with the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA).  Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s Hunting Heritage Program Manager Colby Koerber also joins the conversation to talk about Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s partnership with NAVHDA.

Episode Highlights:
  • Amanda talks about how welcoming NAVHDA is to women, her affinity for Pudelpointers, and her personal story of falling in love with Andy at first sight as he worked his shorthair during a NAVHDA event.
  • Colby talks about NAVHDA’s support of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s “Learn to Hunt” events with chapters across the country and the organization’s Bird Dogs for Habitat campaign.  
  • With Andy’s affinity for shorthairs and Amanda’s affection for Pudelpointers, the couple struggle to come to a consensus on a singular bird dog breed they’d embrace if they had to select only one breed to love together.
