ADVICE FROM BROOKS

BROOKS LINDQUIST

Brooks is CrossFit gym owner in Montana, who spends his winters on the road chasing waterfowl with his chocolate lab, Ollie.

 

THE ONE DOG YOU'LL NEVER FORGET?

My current pup, Ollie. He's my first dog specifically for hunting and is probably better than I deserve as a first pup. He's incredibly smart, a great learner, loving and loyal – everything you could want in a dog.

He's been through the ringer too. Almost drowned in a river twice, been hit by an SUV doing 45, been poisoned twice and decided to go for a long walk without my knowledge a few times as well. Truly a dog with 9 lives.

 

FAVORITE SPECIES TO HUNT WITH YOUR DOG?

Early season teal. It's fast-paced with tons of back-to-back retrieves, and blind retrieves with poor visibility. It's a great way to showcase all the hard work my dog has put in during the off season.

 

FAVORITE SPOT TO HUNT WITH YOUR DOG?

The grundy little cabin on the Missouri. Some of the best hunting I've ever experienced. After long cold hunts on the water, it's a quick boat ride back to the cabin and we fire up the wood-burning stove. The dogs crash hard and usually end up in someone's sleeping bag!

 

FAVORITE HUNTING STORY WITH A DOG?

A few years back I finished out the final day of the season here in Montana on the river. It was a cold, foggy morning and ice chunks ran through the river, so we knew it was going to be a tough hunt. For the dogs' safety, we decided on a slow, shallow backchannel where we pushed out a few hundred mallards.

The three of us each had our labs – two were younger and in their prime, and the other lab had a gray beard. My buddy decided this would be her last hunt, she was getting her butt kicked. The young bloods were hungry, retrieving a lot of doubles and triples before old gray beard could even break out of the blind.

On the final bird of the day, my buddy pulled up and drop the last mallard. The duck landed belly up out if the water. The band shimmering in the sunlight, it seemed as if time stood still. We called off the younger dogs and watch ole gray beard get her final retrieve. Bringing back the bird to hand we smiled and hugged. Every one of us with a tears in our eyes.

Knowing it had been a good run, 11 years of memories to be exact. Those are the short moments that remind me of why I hunt and why I love dogs.

 

ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I knew how to read music from a young age by learning piano and violin. I also taught myself how to play guitar.

 

WHAT INITIALLY MADE YOU CHOOSE GUNNER?

"As a waterfowl hunter – or dog owner period – we spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on a good dog. You might spend hundreds on a dog trainer (or atleast hundreds of hours) or dog training educational materials, accessories, toys, food... etc. Stack on another couple hundred for shots and veterinarian bills. You get the idea.

Accidents happen, and we can't prevent this..... buying your furry friend a solid kennel is the first step that any dog owner should take to ensure that your dog is safe and that all these expenses are a true investment.

 

IF YOU COULD BE ANY DOG BREED (BESIDES THE ONE YOU OWN), WHICH WOULD IT BE?

Probably a shih tzu pom, which is the breed of my wife's dog. She isn't a working dog like a lab.... instead she excels at cuddling and sleeping, literally all day.

"ONCE YOU HAVE A GOOD GUNDOG, IT'S TRULY AN UNBREAKABLE BOND. MY PASSION FOR HUNTING NOW REVOLVES MORE AROUND THE DOG THAN THE HUNTING ITSELF."

It’s like an insurance plan….

This is by far the best kennel made. I use mine daily and they take lots of abuse. They never even seem to wear at all. Hose them off with soap and water and they look brand new. I encourage all of my puppy buyers to get them as well. It’s like an insurance plan for your best friend!

Wow, Just Wow

Wow, this kennel is the Yeti of dog kennels! everything about this kennel is first rate. Yes, there are cheaper, but none can compare to a Gunner kennel.

Amazing travel kennel

This thing is built like a tank. I have no doubt this will protect our little guy if we are ever involved in an accident. We recently completed an 800 mile road trip with him in the crate. It was well worth the money. This was the first time he was calm in the car and not whining. He slept easily during the drive. We felt calm know he was secure and comfortable. Cannot recommend this crate enough!!

Unlike any other crate I have seen

I purchased two Gunner kennels, a medium and a small, for my pups. Immediately, you understand this is a different level of product compared to what you’ve used before. The construction is fantastic and legitimately heavy duty. I feel so much better knowing I’ve done everything I can to keep my dogs safe in case of a worst case scenario.

Best purchase for my best friends

I’ve been buying cheap kennels for the four years I’ve owned my dogs, none of them seemed to hold up. I’ve wanted a Gunner for a year now, and the more I read stories of how they have saved dogs lives, it made me think of how losing my best friends would damn near **** me. So I made the purchase and will never look back. It is one solid kennel and I will not let the kennel hold me back from traveling farther to hunt anymore. It’s well worth the investment. I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for, and this will not let anyone down.
