Yep you are. Anyone who has dogs in the house or in the cab of the truck with them has had to deal with it.
My experience is the higher the protein and fat content in the food = more odoriferous pups.

Tell us where you are willing to travel to for birds and we can give you some ideas.

Here in WNC we have a few grouse, and zero quail, but for any amount of volume hunting it is either a long trip to the Midwest or a short trip to a preserve.
