Hunting Dog Field TrialsMADISON — A good dog is good company, but a trained dog is a real hunting partner.

The June issue of Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine introduces readers to a crowd that hones their dogs’ skills as pointers and retrievers. It takes readers along on field trials and tests as hunting dogs and their handlers get on track with waterfowl and upland birds. Find out where these competitions are held and how to join in to see these four-legged athletes go through their paces.

In other stories, readers will learn why some people hop on board mountain bikes for two-wheeled competitions, crossing logs and bouncing down twisting wooded paths all in the name of outdoor fun. State trails are home to some of the finest mountain biking trails in Wisconsin and the bikers, themselves, help shape the trails and routes.

Another article chronicles the efforts of people who pull out spotting scopes and glass the windy Lake Superior coastline in search of the rare piping plover.

Canoeists will find adventure in a quiet canoe-camping trip along the 250-mile Namekagon and St. Croix rivers in northwestern Wisconsin. The article includes tips and contacts for planning a day trip or a week-long camping trip along these wild and scenic rivers.
