Kicking off the season

quail hound

While being lucky surely never hurts (definitely needed luck for the permit though I've been drawn two years in a row) this hunt was something I poured a ton of time and effort into.

I've put more time into training Roy than any dog before and it took three days and tons of miles on tires, boots, and paws to get birds pointed. No ripped birds were shot at.
Wow- congrats hound!
The kind of hunt we all dream and think about- and when it actually happens, there's no feeling like it! Good pics too!
