"I just finished the workshop and after 25 years of hunting these birds I was very happy to learn a lot of new information about how they live and how best to find them. Thanks for your efforts and your product. I just ordered the Google Earth overlay for The Pere Marquette. Can’t wait till next year." Mark Woolsey



“Hello Ann,

I don’t know whether you remember me or not nor do I expect that you will respond to this email in a timely fashion given your hunting schedule. However, I had to pass some words along.


We spoke a while ago on the phone and I too am a forester and I was inquiring about your DVD set. Well, I went ahead and purchased the materials. It was, to say the least awesome.


I knew everything you were talking about but it took your seminar to bring it all together. The results so far have been astounding.


Without getting into the details, you brought my grouse and woodcock hunting to the next level. It was just the boost I needed. My dog is working closer, I’m reading the habitat better, I’m recognizing food sources, and I am getting more flushes…should I boost your ego more? :-)” Best wishes, Paul Klock, Westin WI
