running the dog


Out for a run put up 2 grouse and 6 woodcock. ran through a field looking for pheasants too, found a roost but never found a pheasant.

Anyone else been out.

I live just south of Traverse City was near the Manistee River 2 days ago, dog pointed one woodcock, one pat (ruffed grouse) and we moved 3 other pats. Total time out was 1.5 hrs. We should have a few more opportunities before the 'quiet time' starts...after the snow tonight melts at least.
