Delmar Smith: World's Coolest Man

By Chad Love

Last year at about this time I wrote a Field Notes blog post on the coolest man in the world. I had no plans to make it an annual award, but that was before I finally got the chance to meet legendary dog trainer Delmar Smith at the Pheasants Forever Pheasant Fest and Quail Classic this past weekend.

I sat in on a lot of cool seminars, met a lot of cool people, saw a lot of cool dogs, and discovered a few cool new products (all of which I'll write about in future blogs), but for sheer, unadulterated cool, nothing could top listening to and meeting the undisputed dean of American bird dog trainers.

How cool is Delmar Smith? Chuck Norris showed up at one of his seminars, and Delmar had him force-broke and steady to shot by the end of the day. He's so cool the folks at NPR ask him to be on their game shows (No really, they did. Listen to the podcast. It's a gem. Delmar absolutely kills it...)
The man is just plain cool, and, at 86, is folksier, wiser, and wittier than just about anyone else out there, at any age. Here's what the late, great Field & Stream gun dogs editor Bill Tarrant had to say about Smith in the introduction to their book Best Way To Train Your Gundog: The Delmar Smith Method: "Delmar Smith's the most distinctive man I ever met. I'd know his hide if it were hanging in a tanning yard. He belongs to neither this second nor this speck of universe. Like truth, he's a simple, eternal force."

I got the chance to ask Delmar a few quick questions in a break between his seminar schedule, and it was a special treat to get a few minutes in the presence of legend.

Out of all the dogs you've owned, trained and competed with, is there one that stands out above all the others?

"I've got to say there really isn't one dog that I can point to. There are going be some dogs that just seem to have something others don't, find birds where others can't, dogs that just seem to make birds, but I've had so many great dogs over the years that I can't pick a favorite. It's like asking me to pick my favorite kid. I don’t have one. I love 'em all equally."

You still live in Edmond, Oklahoma, and even though that area has grown up around you, do you ever get the chance to get out and go quail hunting?

Goose Hunt ND (Early Season) 75 birds - Video

This past year in ND, there was an increase in the Canada Goose limit (Early Season) which allowed hunters to harvest 15 birds per person. This early season is a managment implication increasing the harvest on the record number of local Canada Geese, which also allows for awesome film!!! Fortunate enough to harvest 75 geese!

We did acquire 6 bands as well making this a very memorable hunt! (Didn't realize we had the 6th band until after we lined them up for pictures).

Hope you enjoy! Maybe comment.....maybe subscribe.....maybe something...

Minnesota Honkers Dec 2012 with Big Sean Hammock - Goose Hunt Video

This hunt is played out with no music or dramatic editing. Watch the hunt as it played out for Big Sean and his crew. What you see is exactly what we saw and experienced that morning. Trying to kill the first few bunches of birds in so we could get out of there asap. Even if the birds weren't finishing perfect, we were coming up to kill them. Big Sean was trying to save the field and not educate all the birds in the area. By doing this, we were able to hunt the field again with great success because we didn't bang away at big bunches or sit out there all day long. To see more tips and tactics, check out our School of Waterfowl III DVD coming this summer at

Oregon Cacklers Goose Hunt with Team Deadfowl - Video

The phrase "decoying geese" is taken to the extreme on this hunt. Watch as Team Deadfowl literally finish thousands of geese within feet of their blinds. Hundreds of cackling Canada geese come to this field knowing its a safe place to rest. Little do they know, it can also be the last place they rest. Large flocks, great shooting, awesome camera angles, and an Oregon landscape make this hunt fun to watch. Look very closely for leg bands and a yellow neck collar on one of the geese sitting in the decoys during the middle of the hunt! To see more of Team Deadfowl, check out the new DVD coming this summer to Team Deadfowl contributes several hunts to the School of Waterfowl III. Also you can check out Team Deadfowl on Facebook @

Indiana BIG water honker goose hunt with Stumblin' Drake - Video

This is a fun little water hunt with the guys of Stumblin' Drake filming team. Join Nick and the boys on a perfect situation water hunt done with perfection. Letting the birds leave on their own to go feed is VERY important! And on this day, the weather cooperated and the birds were hungry for some midwest corn. With mild temps and light snow fall, the geese became very active. After the birds left the roost it was time to set up quickly and get ready for a speedy return. The boys shot the first few singles, pairs, and small flocks that came in to the spread. After a quick hunt with a limit of 2 birds each, the crew packed up and got out fast. Making this the perfect scenario to let the birds come back to rest with no pressure from hunters. Hunting smart is how we do it around here!

MN Honkers Goose Hunt with Big Sean Hammock and Minn Vikings #57 Audie Cole - Video

Mid Season goose hunt in Minn with NFL football player Audie Cole. Audie is a rookie for the Minn Vikings and he loves to kill stuff! On the hunt we are running traffic, trying to pull birds from one end of a long field to the end we are set up on. Lots of calling, flagging, and a big number of decoys to attract the birds. We couldnt hunt the "X" end of the field because of houses and building too close to shoot by. So we went to the other end and pulled them to us. A hunter has to do whatever he can to put the birds in the decoys the correct and safe way. To see the full hunt and tips, check out the School of Waterfowl III DVD coming this summer at

Pigeon Hunting - UK - Video

It's been some time since I have been out hunting with the side by side shotgun. I decided to do some wild camping and spent some time hunting pigeons over a few properties I enjoy shooting on.
The choppy winds helped mask my moment and drag the noise of the gun downwind as I made my way up wind across the coastal stretch.
