LTC Jim Morehouse
Raised in the Finger Lakes area of New York State, Jim was involved in hunting and birddogs from an early age. Upon graduation from college, he joined the US Army in 1967. He served until 1989, retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. After his retirement, Jim and his wife moved to Arizona where they opened Arizona Quail Hunts in 1992. Along with guiding quail hunts, behind finished German Shorthaired Pointers, Jim successfully competed in field trials.
Jim is not only an avid upland bird hunter, but also has hunted big game on six continents, taking more than 100 different species.
Why I Use SportDOG®
The people are what make SportDOG the NUMBER ONE collar company. Everyone who works there is either an avid hunter, sports person and/or dog trainer. They understand what it takes to successfully train a dog, and they put that knowledge and enthusiasm into designing and producing top quality products that WORK.
I believe the SportDOG TEK Series (1.0 and 2.0) are the easiest, most reliable, and rugged training tool ever designed. They operate under all conditions, including inclement weather, steep terrain, extremely hot temperatures, and heavy vegetation. If you turn a dog loose without a TEK series collar, you take the chance of losing your best hunting buddy and spoiling your hunt.
