This is a decent instructional and documentary video, made in the the mid-1990s (but still available new) covering hunting pheasant, grouse, and quail in the United states. It is aimed at the intermediate level hunter, and assumes a basic familiarity with hunting. However, I think beginners can learn a lot from it too, and experienced hunters can also learn some tips about hunting techniques, bird food sources, their cover choices, habits and habitat.

Each of the three segments is about 50 minutes long. It is a combination of instruction, documentary footage, and several short interviews with bird hunting experts and state wildlife department personel.

The narrator (hunting & fishing author Tom Huggler) uses a rambling style, and the video jumps around in topics, so I had to watch it a few times to pick up all the information. I'd recommend that it be supplemented with a couple of the good books on upland bird hunting (and a class too if possible). Several of these books are out of print, but of course many are available used on Amazon. I can recommend the NRA series of hunting books as good books for beginners. (Obviously check the Amazon reviews on the books to compare them.)

This video being older, it is more instructional than most current hunting videos. These days we are inundated with many silly entertainment-style hunting DVDs in the Reality TV format, many taken from television shows. The general format is: "Some wacky/unsual/interesting people (apparently with a lot of money) go hunting and fishing with a lot of expensive equipment and nice trucks." And in those modern hunting DVDs there is a lot of obvious sponsorship and "product placement" by a brands of hunting equipment and vehicles rather than objective comparisons of equipment.

Living in Michigan, we are familiar with Tom Huggler and is excellent writing. So, while looking for bird hunting dvd's for my husbands Christmas gifts I came across this dvd and thought it would be worthwhile. We have just enjoyed watching it and we HIGHLY recommend it. Informative, great footage and fun to listen to, we're pleased with the purchase and anyone interested in bird hunting (all aspects..from habitat, hunting methods, guns & dogs)really will be pleased to add this to their collection.

I have looked, searched and queried...finding any upland bird hunting video is difficult. Upland Bird Hunting is probably the best presentation on the market today. Mr. Huggler takes the time to walk you through the process from beginning to end. Further, he offers so insight into the time honored tradition of stalking the mountains and fields for the ever elusive birds we seek for the dinner table!
