ADVICE FROM MORGAN

MORGAN MASON

Morgan started off a small-town farm boy and was led to a life of adventure and travels after a 14-month deployment to Iraq in 2003. He's worked in the outdoor industry for a number of years as a structure-and-wildland firefigher, a guiding fly fisherman – and most recently a hook-and-bullet editor. He currently works at MeatEater, focusing on conservation and gun dog content.

 

THE ONE DOG YOU'LL NEVER FORGET?

Bomber. The bond we created helped me tremendously while I was decompressing from Iraq. He was my adventure buddy, we went everywhere together.

 

FAVORITE SPECIES TO HUNT WITH YOUR DOG?

Bobwhite quail, back home on the farm in Kansas

 

FAVORITE HUNTING STORY?

One of the last hunts I went on with my dad was late fall in 2018. He’s knees are pretty torn up from the farm and mechanic life, might be the last hunt I get to do with him. We set out on a small plot of land near our farm where we have access.

There are two milo fields with a small creek bottom running diagonally. Cottonwoods and plum thickets run the creek bottom, it’s the perfect habitat for healthy coveys of bobwhites.

Before starting the walk, my dad asks me if I’d like to take his CZ Upland Ultralight. I tell him sure, as I’m looking at getting a new O/U. We traded guns and started hunting. He then says, “Just thought you’d like to experience the gun since you bought one last year and never got to use it.”

The story here is I bought my girlfriend this exact shotgun, she broke up with me shortly after. The sarcasm was laid on thick and he belly laughed about his well thought-out joke. I gave him a few choice words and kept hunting.

The quail didn’t hold well this day as the dogs worked them. We pulled up a single or two here and there, but they moved like a running rooster. After moving through the whole creek bottom, the dogs still acted birdy. I moved up to the perch of a hill and the ground erupted. I was standing directly in the middle of a large covey of quail, about 15 total. The small birds whirled around me like Saturn missile fireworks going off. I pulled off two horribly placed shots, missing completely both times. My father stood at the corner of the section about 100 yards away, belly laughing again. My brother joined in on the laughter too.

We slowly walked up the section towards my father, the dogs were birdy the whole way. We thought there was a couple of quail that didn’t get up. That’s when a rooster got up 15 yards away from my old man. It was a chip shot. He squeezed off three times, unloading the semi Winchester. It was my turn to laugh.

I walked up to him with a few more choice words and we switched our guns back to their rightful owners.

 

FUNNIEST DOG STORY?

When I was dirt bagging around Colorado I adopted a black lab. My housing situation wasn't exactly excited about this new roommate and not-so-kindly asked me to leave. I spent the rest of that summer camping out of the back of my Durango with my lab Bomber exploring the high country and lots of time on the river together.

 

LONGEST ROAD TRIP TAKEN WITH YOUR DOG?

I drove from Denver, CO with my black lab Bomber (RIP) down to the tip of Baja Mexico. I spent 4 months surfing, spearfishing and camping along various beaches. Then we drove back to Colorado.

 

WHAT'S A SKILL MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW YOU HAVE?

I love surfing, especially river waves.

 

IF YOU COULD BE ANY DOG BREED WHICH WOULD IT BE?

Drahthaar. They are driven do-it-all work horses in the gun dog realm.

 

WHERE DOES YOUR PASSION FOR DOGS ORIGINATE?

Growing up on a quarter section in Kansas, walking those 166 acres with my old man and brother behind the dogs and chasing coveys of bobwhites around the hedge rows on the property.

 

WHAT'S LEFT TO ACCOMPLISH FOR YOU?

Become a recreational pilot, own a plot of land in Montana and hunt birds like Ben O'Williams.

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.
