ADVICE FROM CHRISTIAN

CHRISTIAN DUBOIS

Christian is a photographer from a small town in south Louisiana, Cajun country! He grew up around gundogs and for as long as he can remember, he's had a retriever. Though he was raised with waterfowl hunting and still loves it, speckled geese (specks) are now his main interest. Other than waterfowl, doves are "by far" his favorite wing shooting.

 

THE ONE DOG YOU'LL NEVER FORGET?

My boy Cash, who's no longer with us. He was my first “real” retriever that allowed me to really understand what it took to turn a puppy into fully finished gundog. He was my right hand man, and he was a protector of my daughter, Emmy (they were the same age).

 

FAVORITE SPECIES TO HUNT WITH YOUR DOG?

Specks, by a long shot. Preferably a dry-cut rice field, because I enjoy watching dogs tackle a wounded bird at full speed.

 

WHERE DOES YOUR PASSION FROM YOUR DOG ORIGINATE?

Watching good retrievers work in the field has brought a different aspect to the hunt for me. But my good friend Myles really opened my eyes to the dog training world, and showed me the ins-and-outs of what it takes to train and raise one.

 

FAVORITE HUNTING STORY WITH A DOG?

I have so many, but one that sticks out is with Cash and I in some flooded timber down in south Louisiana. It was just the two of us and we got turned around in the dark on the way in. We eventually found the hole right before sunup, and no one had claimed it yet. We sat, he listened to me complain about why the ducks weren’t working – the few we did kill he did his job, full of passion as always. He’s no longer with us, but he sure was a hell of a dog to watch work.

 

ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU? SOMETHING YOU'D LIKE TO LEARN?

I have a knack for mechanics. I wish I knew decoy carving. That’s something that has always caught my interest, and the history behind old wooden decoys are always a neat topic.

 

WHAT INITIALLY MADE YOU CHOOSE GUNNER?

I met Addison a few years back at Wings Over The Prairie in Arkansas and picked his brain about the product. Once I heard his story and the dedication he put into it, I knew it was a no brainer for me. We invest so much into our dogs/hunting companions, why not go the extra mile to reassure their safety! I also love supporting like minded, down-to-earth people.

 

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

Jack Russel Terrier. They are some tough little suckers, and have an extreme killer instinct.
