The first week of pheasant hunting has not disappointed. My 22 year old daughter decided to hunt this year for the first time. Today she got her first birds. Our puppy is six months old and provided her first genuine solid point yesterday. Today, my wife captured one of Willow's many solid points. Willow also had her first retrieve yesterday on a partridge. Today she made her first pheasant retrieve. She must have been tired of watching her 3 year old sister retrieve bird after bird to me. We are looking forward to several more months of quality time together and some more good hunts. I look forward to seeing my wife get her first bird (she also started hunting this year). I love seeing the puppy progress and continue to learn from her a sister Ellie.
