ABOUT OUR COVER
Old Gate Ruffs by Ross B. Young
Old Gate Ruffs is a compilation of several of my favorite hunting spots. I often work in such a fashion, remembering places that I have seen and hunted and shared with my dogs, and the birds we have pursued. Rather than depicting a specific spot, I prefer to work from memory of dogs I have hunted with, and places I have known and enjoyed. The location in this painting is really three different covers I have hunted in the Northeast all rolled up into one. The setters are a pair of dogs I have hunted Missouri and Texas quail with many times and always thought they would make great grouse dogs as well - this is their chance! ROSS B. YOUNG
