Where is Upland Hunter Dan?

On June 10, 2007 I posted an article In celebration of the 10th Birthday of the popular action figure Hunter Dan. As mentioned in the article, the action figure comes in a variety of characters such as, Hunter Dan Deer Hunter, Hunter Dan Rifle Hunter, Hunter Dan Bowhunter, Hunter Dan Elk Hunter plus goose, duck and turkey hunter. There is also a Hunter Dan Bass Angler and the female version Hunter Ann for most of the above male characters. Each of these characters comes with their own set of gadgets and game animal figures that can be additionally purchased.

Now yesterday I visited the Upland Feathers Blog and while reading Hunter Dan Conspiracy it became obvious to me that the Hunter Dan Company made one omission to the Hunter Dan action figure line up. There is NO Hunter Dan Upland bird Hunter. How can that be? Upland bird hunting is a very popular segment in our hunting heritage. I have to fully agree with the writer of the article in that the upland bird societies like the, Ruffed Grouse Society, Quail Unlimited and Pheasants Forever should lobby the creators of Hunter Dan for a Upland Hunter action figure. Perhaps even we could start a friendly letter writing campaign to that end. If you would like to see a Hunter Dan Upland Bird Hunter please contact Creative Outdoor Products, Inc. and let them know that you are an Upland game hunter and would like to see a Hunter Dan representing your hunting preference.

I guess great upland hunting minds think alike. Thanks for mentioning Upland Feathers. What would your Upland Hunter Dan look like?

Thanks for stopping by Robert.
What would my Upland Hunter Dan look like? Well, since you ask, my Upland Hunter Dan should wear brush pants and a traditional upland game vest. My Upland Hunter Dan would be accompanied by a faithful German Pointer, having said that, I have to admit that I never hunted upland birds with a dog. Of course the upland hunter Dan should also have a choice of a variety of upland game birds and a small arsenal of shotguns, from the reliable pump action gun to the exquisite Italian custom over-under and side-by-side gun.
