The winning shots from our annual photo contest celebrating fishing, hunting, wildlife and family adventure
HUNTING: 2ND PLACE
PHOTOGRAPHER: Jackie Nicholas
WHERE: Whitehorse, Yukon
WHEN: October 2019
DETAILS: A professional dog trainer from Whitehorse, Jackie Nicholas says she’s proud of this photo because it took her a year to teach her Catahoula leopard dog to “soft mouth” grouse. “Jessey’s not a natural bird dog, but with hard work and training, she reliably finds and retrieves birds,” Nicholas says. The other dog is Jeffrey, a two-year-old American cocker spaniel that’s great at flushing and retrieving birds.
