Photographer: Eric Poulin


Where: Ceylon, Saskatchewan, area

When: November 2015

Details: Whistler, B.C.’s Eric Poulin was visiting family in Regina, Saskatchewan, when he tagged along for a day of upland bird hunting with his father, Dennis, holding a camera instead of a gun. “We left extra early in the morning to catch this sunrise, and the dogs’ excitement is evident,” he says. “My father has been hunting pheasants in the area for the last 27 years, and his dogs have been an integral part of his success. This day, there were two birds we surely would have lost if it hadn’t been for the dogs’ keen noses.”
