Ben O. Williams has become legendary for his hard-charging, bold, and obedient hunting dogs. The training method he has developed over forty years consistently produces dogs that are friendly and affectionate, yet who also perform at the highest level of excellence in the field. And the best part is the Ben O. Williams Instinctive Method revealed in this book is not only easy, but fun for both owner and dog. Both a training manual and a bird philosophy, the heavily-illustrated Bird Dog reveals unique and timed-tested methods that cultivate a dog's desires and instincts to achieve upland hunting bliss, while also creating a loveable home companion. Williams is an acclaimed dog breeder, trainer, and outdoor writer who is the author of several books. He is a dog magazine columnist, and a member of the Orvis Wingshooting Advisory Board. He and his dogs have appeared on many outdoor television shows, including Gray's Sporting Journal.

This vintage book contains a complete guide to training a dog for hunting birds, with chapters on selection and breeding, breaking, psychology, equipment, and much more. Interspersed with personal anecdotes, this highly-readable handbook will appeal to modern hunters, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of vintage sporting literature. Contents include: "First Days in the Field", "Getting on Game", "Gun-Shyness and Retrieving", "Hunting Quail and Pheasants", "A Successful Pheasant Hunt", "Wonderful Work", "Steadying to Shot and Wing", "A Little Canine Psychology", "Further Facts and Anecdotes", "Finishing Touches", "Things to be Aware Of", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.

Philosophy and practice of seismic data quality supervision

This book describes the methods and attributes required for the compe tent quality control of the data acquisition of a seismic exploration crew operating on land. Although the book is concerned mainly with explo ration for oil and gas reservoirs, and all the topics that are discussed in it are centred on that target, the material is applicable to other areas of seismic exploration such as civil engineering and the search for other minerals. The book comprises the distillation of more than thirty years' experience in geophysical exploration in all its aspects and in many parts of the world. Seismic data acquisition quality supervision is one aspect of geophysical exploration which, although of great importance, has had, so far as the writer is aware, no textbook devoted to it. It is hoped that it will be of interest to anyone who is engaged, in whatever capacity, in geophysical exploration and will help them to attain their goal, which is illustrated in Fig. 1. 1. The term birddog is colloquial in the geophysical exploration industry. It is a convenient shorthand title to describe the person whose full title is, and who acts as, the data acquisition quality control supervisor on a field seismic exploration crew. The term is used also to describe the person who is the client's representative on the field crew. In practice the same person performs both functions on behalf of the client.

Archibald Rutledge has long been recognized as one of the finest sporting scribes this country has ever produced. A prolific writer who specialized in stories on nature and hunting, over the course of a long and prolific career Rutledge produced more than fifty books of poetry and prose, held the position of South Carolina’s poet laureate for thirty-three years, and garnered numerous honorary degrees and prizes for his writings. In this revised and expanded edition of Bird Dog Days, Wingshooting Ways, noted outdoor writer Jim Casada draws together Rutledge’s stories on the southern heartland, deer hunting, turkey hunting, and Carolina Christmas hunts and traditions. This collection, first published in 1998, turns to Rutledge’s writings on two subjects near and dear to his heart that he understood with an intimacy growing out of a lifetime of experience—upland bird hunting and hunting dogs. Its contents range from delightful tales of quail and grouse hunts to pieces on special dogs and some of their traits. Bird Dog Days, Wingshooting Ways also includes a long fictional piece, “The Odyssey of Bolio,” which shows that Rutledge’s literary mastery extended beyond simple tales for outdoorsmen.

Bird Dogs, Their Handlers, and Field Trialing

Bird dog performance events may not be what many people believe they are. This book takes the reader behind the scenes across the span of two years campaigning. The author reports from chapter to chapter on the progress of two dogs, one already a field champion, the other a dog just getting started in field trials. More importantly, each chapter examines various elements of field trialing not directly connected to the dogs. Most of these elements are common to all breeds of bird dog performance events whether they be the pointing dogs, the flushers or the retrievers. This book looks at the interplay between the clubs sponsoring the events and wildlife managers responsible for the grounds on which they are held. It looks at the friendships and conflicts between dog handlers. This book also looks at the elation of winning field trials, but shows the follies which occur as well, and much more. If you are a hard core field trial handler you will nod your head as you read saying to yourself, boy if that isn't the truth. If you have never been to a bird dog performance event and have wondered what they are really about, this will tell you the story.
