Sounds like opening weekend in Montana. Lots of people out! Good dog work.Coyotes and fox end up getting those eventually. Farm cats also get them.When you say caught a bird I don't consider a cripple a real caught. Years ago circumstances had me get to MT on late afternoon of opening day. I never usually hunt opening weekend, but work got in the way and that was the time we had. Crowds all over, but I found a place to park next to some mediocre crp and let the dog out. She put up a rooster which I got with one shot, than she found a broken wing rooster which she brought back. We turned around and headed for the car and she found another broke wing rooster. Almost back to the car and she found another broke wing rooster. So I had 4 birds with one shot. We called it a day and my wife never got out of the car.
