Lua Hunter Oberle 2021 Outdoor News Huntin Buddy Photo Contest Entry

Lua is my parents 6 year old GSP. They brought her home when I was 14, to say the least Lua became my “sister.” From a very young age we knew she was going to be stubborn but an excellent hunter.
In the fall of 2020 I started to guide Pheasant hunts with her. As the season went on our relationship grew stronger. Not only does hunting bring people together it creates a bond between man/woman and dog that is unbreakable.
This photo is from our last hunt of the 2020/2021 hunting season. To me it is more than just a picture of my dog, it is a photo that tells a story of the hard work we put in together throughout the season. It is a photo that reminds me how much Lua and I grew together as guides and hunters. When I look at this photo I can’t help but smile because Lua taught me the importance of having a huntin’ buddy.
