Hey all, had just a short time to hunt today, my partner (daughter Patty) had to be home early.

Saw grouse, but for some odd reason they sure were spooky, Raina would get wind of them, and up they went out of range. Odd behavior, as the area we hunted hasn't been hunted so far this season. Oh well, that's hunting!

Raina did manage to pin some huns down and I managed one out of that covey.

Patty and Raina. Patty was using a 20ga Yildiz

We'll see what tomorrow brings!

Went out after Church today (we had early Mass) just hunted one area. Saw lot's of birds....but, they sure were spooky again! They kept getting up just out of range. Did shoot one more (feathers flew and both legs dropped), but he sailed over a ridge. Looked and looked, just couldn't find him! The other two were singles that were in range. Addie did well but started to get over heated (temp is at 82), so I figured I'd quit for the day. I shot three so I was happy and didn't want to be a game hog anyway.

I used my 16ga Ugartechea 1030

Hey all, went out after work for a quick hunt.  Old lady luck smiled on me.  I was able to limit in 45 minutes.  Raina did well, the weather was perfect!  Couldn't ask for more!

Hey all, well my daughter Patty and I went out today. It was a very good day! Patty got her first bird! One proud papa here. She got it with 1 shot and it went down hard. I also got one. We both got ours after a bunch got up wild, no shots on them. But as always with Sharpies, there were a couple of lonesome Charlies. Addie went with today, she did very well, good solid points and nice retrieves to hand. She's going to be another Old Girl (Duchess was one of best dogs I've ever owned). At 2 1/2 years she is really doing well. Very happy with her. My other GSP Raina is going on the sidelines for awhile. She's got a pretty good gash under her leg. So until she heals up...Addie will have to take the lead. Anyway, a very good day!

Patty and her first bird. She was using a Yildiz 20ga

Congrats on your daughters first bird! A sharptail no less. Hard to beat as far as first upland birds go. Well done!

Hey all, number 2 son (Jim) and I went out after Church for a short hunt prior to Sunday afternoon company coming over. Jim got 1 and I managed 2. My 2 were both passing shots from birds that flew over. Kind of fun!

Anyway, I used my 16ga Arrieta 871
