Scott Linden & Wingshooting USA Bird Hunters' Poll

Hello fellow bird hunters! Here's the second half of our survey.

I hope your hunting season is going well ... and safe, too. I hope your dogs stay healthy and your shots are straight, and you share the bounty of your hunts with friends and family including a few non-hunters. Can you help me help my friends in the hunting lodge industry by answering a few questions? I'll pass the survey results on to them at an upcoming convention, in hopes of making your next experience better. Answers are anonymous and I won't share your email address or name with anyone. And everyone who responds is eligible for a random drawing for a prize package including a Blaze Buddy Bandanna, multi-tool, books, and other great bird-hunting gear. Thanks for your response. Please send in your answers today!

PS: As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome. There's plenty of room, so have at it! And please visit my website for a blog, hunting tips and some fun videos: Thanks.
