Hey all, only had time for a very short hunt today. We're having our Church Dinner/Fair tomorrow, so have to help set up today. Thought I'd post this first however. Another hot dry day and little wind (unusual for here!) I got 1, but also lost one. Legs down, sailed off and dropped about a 1/4 mile away (they sure can glide). Neither I or Addie could find him, what a shame.

Anyway, here's Addie in the field. She did very well today. Point a big group that wouldn't hold, got up wild, got a Lonesome Charlie out of the bunch.

Hey all, yesterday was our Pheasant opener, but we got about 2" of rain. It rained all day and most of the night. Went out late this afternoon, it was windy, saw birds, but they were a bit spooky. Addie would pin them, but they wouldn't hold. Did manage one, better than nothing. My son Jim and I will see what tomorrow brings.

Hey all, Number 2 son (Jim) and I went out today for some Ringneck hunting. It wasn't the best. We saw birds and like yesterday, they were spooky. Even Addie had a hard time pinning them down. She'd go on a real hard point and up the bird went! Or they just got wild. We did manage to get one each (the ones that held). It was a good day to be out with my boy, that you can't match.

Jim, Addie and the birds. Jim used his Victor Sarasqueta 3EC 12ga

Great pics as always, Greg. I've watched your boys, and beautiful daughter, grow up over the years through the pics you've posted here, of them. They are fine looking young folks.

Aren't y'all about due for a frost, up there? Mercy, that grass still looks green!

Thanks for all the very kind words!!! I sure do appreciate all the thoughts on my kids. I a one proud papa!

As to the frost, who knows. It's been an odd year for weather, hot, then cold, dry then rainy (at times). Only time will tell.

Thanks again so much!

Greg

Hey all, went out solo today, was able to get my first (and hope not last) limit of Roosters. A bit cold and windy, but worth it!

Addie did very well again, she's a joy to hunt with.

Short video of Addie in the weeds (camera operator was a bit off!)

Greg, if envy is really one of the Seven Deadly Sins, then I am going to hell from being envious of all those ringnecks you shot. I doubt if there are that many native pheasants remaining in my entire county.

The bird on the right in the photo from a few days ago, shot by your son Jim, looks especially large bodied. It looks almost the size of the hen turkey that bounced off of the windshield of my truck last weekend.

And belated congratulations to your daughter Patty for taking her first bird. I'm sure that was a proud moment you will never forget.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
