(HWMC) is owned and operated by Jeremy and Laura Bedortha. We became interested in dog sledding after getting our second siberian husky in 1998. Over the years our kennel has grown in size and beginning in the 2007-2008 season the kennel began offering dog spirited adventures to the public for the first time. We moved to our current location in 2005 and have been improving the network of trails on it since the first day. The kennel is made up of all purebred Siberians, each with a very unique personality. Winter time is our busy time here at Husky Works Kennel, but it is also the time of year we enjoy the most with our dogs. We try to spend as much time with the dogs on the trail as we can, running almost daily most weeks. We will run during daylight hours as well as taking many night adventures with high powered headlamps, or when possible by moonlight.

Spectacular scenery and wildlife. Bring your camcorders, binoculars and warm clothes. Spectacular scenery and wildlife. Bring your camcorders, binoculars and warm clothes. Waterfowl hunting on Northern Lake Champlain is at its best on the fringes of the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge. This 6600 acre refuge is a resting and feeding area for many waterfowl species during fall migration. 25,000 ducks share this area with lots of Canada and snow geese. This migration stopover harbors ideal habitat for these birds. Some major foods in this marsh are wild rice, water celery, duck potato, pondweed and sedge. Some of the puddle ducks we hunt are blacks, mallards wigeon, pintail, gad wall, bufflehead, teal,redhead, scaup, bluebill, shoveler, wood ducks and diving ducks. Our Lund Alaskan 18’ guide boat accommodates six people and gear. All tours and hunts are guided by Captain Gregg Campbell, Vermont native and forestry graduate. Coast Guard licensed and insured. We welcome handicapped and disabled persons aboard our vessel. Making friends and pleasing people are our goals.
