That's a bummer. You can always hunt with others, without the dogs, or get on some pen raised sanctuary stuff just to scratch the itch until next season.

My other partner is a member at a local preserve.

We'll go hunt some pheasants using the owners dog, but it's just not like hunting woodcock. IMO, pheasants are a little easier. They stay out of the real thick stuff, they fly longer, they fly slower, and they're a much bigger target. Plus it's more expensive. Ahhh what the heck...it's only money. :lol:

As you say, it will have to scratch the itch until next year. Let's hope he recovers completely. {hs#

It’s bird weather here. Last night 42 degrees and 60 for a high today. Crystal clear skies and almost no wind

It has actually been too warm to move the blue grouse up the mountain where I like to hunt them.

I am a little discouraged. A good friend died from the covid
a week ago, and my dog has a limp on a front leg that I can’t seem to get healed up. I have been going out with her and I am hoping it will get better by pheasant season. Where I pheasant hunt is a hard hunt for her.

When I have some more cheerful news I will post it. I do like to cheer people up. :lol: Hunt on!

Thanks for that uplifting report, chucka. I was feeling OK until I read it. :lol:

Just kidding. Sorry about your friend and hope your dog gets to doing better soon.

Yea Pheasant are easier than the smaller faster birds, no doubt. I get married in two weeks and then it's back home to start upland season and get after Mr. Bob ASAP.
