"Blessed with the ability, humbled by the opportunity..."
(Anthony Ferro, Founder - Fetching Feathers LLC)
What is Fetching Feathers?
Fetching Feathers is an emotional and spiritual connection with nature driven into the very fiber of a man's soul. Solace can only be found rambling God's countryside, in anticipation of the next flush, covey rise, cup or strut.
The passion I possess for a life less traveled led me to the idea that a man or woman's gear should represent their approach. A new school revival of an age old past time, bringing forth the indigenous traditions of our game bird hunters and gun dog trainers with style.
With our gun dogs we share a loyalty and a bond. We also share in the experience, for our dogs are at the core of all that we hold dear.
I am aiming to touch the human heart through the intricacies and emotional ties that mother nature offers the willing.
TRADITIONS BROUGHT FORTH
Inevitably throughout a man or woman's life of journey, they are bound to find what makes them tick. For me there is no greater tradition in life than those shared in wilderness with our closets friends, family and 4 legged companions.
Welcome to the Journey
John Wooden once said, "Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is who you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think of you."
If this statement were to stand true, then the same can be said about judging the character of a man based on how he treats his dogs. Fetching Feathers was created on the journey, and without the dogs at the heart of the journey, the journey merely would not exist. In the heart of every man God instilled a touch of wild, while some get a heavier hand than others, Anthony is truly wild at heart.
Thriving to watch the sun rise and set, his heart beats in rhythm with Mother Nature. The smell of rain in the distance and the sound of a cackling rooster on the flush are the moments that make life worth living. Unorthodox in his approach, the emotions are as pure as they come.
Are you ALIVE or just LIVING…
Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the animals, over all creatures that move along the ground" (Genesis 1:26)
As far back as Anthony can remember he has always been drawn to Mother Nature's subtleties. When asked why he's so adamant about the path less traveled, he replied, "In my eyes, it's the only place free of judgement. There is no right or wrong, no color, no religion, no language... The uplands allow a man to exist freely as he were intended, not separated by our differences, but brought together by our common passion for the dogs. "
