We have been very blessed by the recent rain which has put the farm in exceptional shape for the upcoming hunting season. 
Zach has been very busy and added lots of great plantings this summer. He has planted Grain Sorghum in all the hunting fields. Sorghum provides the quail a season long feed supplement as well as providing dense cover for protection from predation. We have a great crop of sweet Silver Queen and a gorgous field of sunflowers of the Peredovik variety. Peredovik is known for yielding high amounts of seed. 

Our brand new kennel will be opening this fall and will be available for short and long- term boarding. Special pricing will be offered as a member privilege. More details on the new kennel in our fall newsletter.

Here is a look at just a few of the things that have been happening at Selwood:

Shooters tip of the month... 

See the bird before you move the gun:

Most of you know that at Selwood we take the fundamentals of shooting very seriously. I have found that when I get stumped on a target or simply hit a wall the fundamentals will always pull you out of the ditch.
 
One important fundamental is seeing the bird before moving the gun. A term that I use regularly is getting in sync with the bird. You cannot get in sync by moving the gun before seeing the target. If you are trying to increase your score or simply trying to brush up on your shooting please give us a ring to schedule a lesson.

Shooting a shotgun can be frustrating if you don't have a basic understanding of the proper fundamentals.
