Nothing gets between a hunter and a hunting dog. To pay homage to our four-footed hunting buddies, we've collected 21 inspiring photos of hunting dogs you need to see.
Whether we use them for running, flushing, treeing, retrieving, or just as a buddy along for the ride, a gun dog becomes a hunter's best and most trusted friend.
In honor of those dogs and the bond that we have with them, check out these 21 inspiring photos of hunting dogs.
