Thanks! I took some flak for the running, which was a bit more extensive on this day. I suppose I could edit it out and make my hunts look a bit more refined, but that isn't the truth of the hunt and all I care about is having that footage of Sage doing her thing, even if it isn't textbook. That first spot was very thin and not a very good place for pheasants to hide. But they do like to loaf there before they head back out for supper.Great video. Keep up the good work. I'm learning from you working this "thin" grass. Well maybe not thin, but short and it's always nice to be able to watch a flushing dog work, even if you have to run after them at times.
As the season progresses, I'll spend more time in the cattails and I could probably find more pheasants if I directed our focus there now, but to be able to watch the dog work up until the flush is what really gets me excited and, naturally, that's what I find myself focusing on.
