Sometimes it is hard to see the forest for all the trees and we all know that locating key habitat is the first step in planning a successful hunt and, of course getting there is the next step. Our products have been proven to help you with both of those steps.
For over ten years we have been providing hunters with specialized topographical maps that identify game specific habitat thus eliminating the need for countless hours of driving and walking looking for places to hunt. Our maps are produced by a graduate forester and upland guide who know the woods and how to identify productive habitat. The same maps we produce for hunters we also use for scouting new areas for our guided hunts, thus ensuring a quality hunt for our clients. We strive to provide services that save you time and give you valuable information that will help you pinpoint prime habitat instead of spending your time in non-productive habitat.

In 2012 we introduced you to our newest product for hunters - Scout and Hunt Overlays for Google Earth. Please take a couple minutes and view the short video below to see how you can utilize Google Earth in conjunction with our Grouse and Woodcock Habitat Bundles:
This is the ultimate tool for those of you that want to utilize Google Earth to prepare for your upcoming hunt and to learn more about the habitat in which you will be hunting before you go into the woods. Knowing where the key habitat is located saves time, money, and untold frustration. The majority of your "pre-hunt" scouting can now be done from home, thus maximizing your time spent in the field. You will enjoy a more productive hunt in prime habitat locations versus driving the roads and wasting precious time. For more information please click here.

Thanks again to all who attended one of our grouse hunting seminars that we have held over the past four years. Even though there are no public seminars scheduled at this time, we are planning to offer the program in conjunction with our Northwind Grouse and Woodcock Clinic as a daylong event here in northern Wisconsin in late summer, early fall. In addition, our 3-disc DVD package "How to Locate and Strategically Hunt Grouse and Woodcock" is available. For more information on our seminars, clincis, and DVDs please click here.
Although we breed and raise Elhew bred Pointers primarily for our guide business, from time to time we do have pups, started pups, and started dogs for sale. This coming spring we will have available some started pups, whelped earlly August 2010, and some started dogs with one to two grouse seasons "under their belts". Our dogs are bred specifically for hunting grouse in the dense cover of the northwoods of Wisconsin. They are well socializaed, highly bidable, close-working dogs that hunt for you. Our dogs are premier hunting partners and family pets. Be sure to check back with us in April. For more information about our Elhew bred English Pointers please click here.
A unique dog training experience only found in the heart of northern Wisconsin's premier grouse habitat. Our Northwind Wilderness Base Camp is off the grid, well off the beaten path. We are fortunate to have access to abundant grouse and woodcock to train our own dogs, and client dogs, for grouse and woodcock hunting. If you are looking at getting your dog on more Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock than they will see most anywhere else in the US this is the place to send your dog to be trained starting in early June through mid-September.
