A season with the hounds

I've been invited by a friend who manages a private duck club in the Butte Sink to come hunt pheasants and quail on the club. I'm not sure when I'll be able to make it up there but I sure hope I can. When and if I do I'll probably spend a day at Greylodge while I'm up there too.

Been gone and busy hunting, and this was a great read to come back to!
Glad you enjoyed it. I'm getting some pretty good work out of the pup already and of course the old warrior is always ready to rock. Heading out to the grasslands tomorrow.:cheers:

Went out yesterday morning for a few hours. JP flushed a few hens and Lady had points on four hens, two covies of quail, and one rooster who ran and flushed wild. I was going to take her out quail hunting this morning but forgot to set my alarm.:(

Overslept, eh? Well, it happens. 'Course the dog doesn't understand, but she still loves you. She doesn't know what you kept her from...probably. She is unlikely to think that she might have caught on to some essential bit of training and experience that would completely fulfill her genetic inheritance, her drive, her entire being. She still loves you, even while you were sleeping...unaware of the beating canine heart that races at the very scent of your gun and gear being loaded. She still loves you, dependent as she is for all things in her life. So, the sleep you got is probably a good thing, no matter what the near or short term effects on her life, training, natural reactions to wind, weather and game. Well, fine. Just fine.

Terribly windy today in the grasslands, 30-40mph sustained. The springers were dropped first and quickly put up two roosters, the first got up into tge sun and by the time I was able to identify it I had to let it go. That would prove to ve the only rooster in range. Lady pointed three covies of quail and a few snipe, one I decided to shoot for her. Total for the day was 4 roosters, 4 hens, and 4 covies.
