2005 was another great season of "CHUMP CHANGE"
hunting memories in the field. This year I had the pleasure of
hunting with two different "CHUMP CHANGE" pup
owners and their dogs. Mitch Legault and "Brewer" of Winnipeg Manitoba
Canada, and John Wilson and "Pete" from the great state of New
Mexico. Both men and dogs came to hunt with Jiggs and I in the
Wisconsin coverts and marshes. The same coverts that have made the
name "CHUMP CHANGE" the standard bearer in Wisconsin, for
the truly versatile hunters choice in german wirehaired pointers.

old pup "Chump Changes Pistol Pete" and their first wild bird, a
woodcock. The smile
says it all!!
||Jiggs intently scans the sky for incoming ducks. There is no time for snoozing in the blind!!

a cold November day.
|Blowing wind, snow and cold, ducks flying, a good
dog and gun, equals the last day of the season limit of mallards!! Wirehairs do it all!!
||Jim Esslinger and some of the Muddy Waters
Retriever Club boys treated me to a field goose hunt! It was pretty cool. Thanks guys!!
|There are those who will tell you, hunting is what
they are all about. Don't believe'em.
