First pheasant hunt of the season. Dog and I got out this morning. I made the mistake of letting him hunt too far ahead of me, and two pheasants flushed out of range.

But... He pointed three birds. I took three shots. Dropped three birds. smile

Also - he accomplished his first retrieve. We've been working on that this summer. He did great! Lots of praise. I made sure he knew that he did great.

I was using 12 gauge, 2 3/4" Kent Fasteel #6's. They worked great, just as they did last year.

So happy to be bird hunting again!

Great to see you getting the pup out on some birds! Sounds like he's coming along nicely, well done. Hope you guys have a great season!

I'll put up some pictures later. I took a team of great kids pheasant hunting near Arlington for the Governor's Hunt, it was a great time but we had a tough day. 8 hunters got 7 birds. Last night we went over to Harrold again and the snow and cold were brutal. I think we got 12 but no one stood around to take pictures or count birds. Brutal conditions. Going again today, against my better judgment. Down to Hamill, SD. I'll take some pics and report back later.

Beautiful pic Battue. That camera you’ve mentioned, or phone?

GL95 Butler.

Suggestion for first bird. Call Roy at Stony Creek sporting clays close to Berlin. He has a mini preserve and will put out Birds for you.

Other than that you will have to check the various GL for the weekend they stock. However, right now there should be Birds on all of the them. They wise up after a week or so, but boots on the ground should get you into Birds.

She flushed two today. First one was 50 yards out, miss.
Second was in a less than desirable situation and a miss. She got Gun shy so that was that.

Just back from SD.

Great times with good buddies but didn't shoot a rooster in 3 days.

Flushed birds every piece of ground we hunted, but almost exclusively hens, I think we saw 4 roosters in 3 days, none within gun range. We probably flushed 70 hens.

Its my 3rd trip in 4 years to SD, and my 6th in the last 11 years and it seems to be getting worse every year.

Dogs got some great work,so there's that. I might be done with the public land for a while. If I go next year, will go on one of those paid hunts, I guess.

Woodcock are thick here this year. The PP works better on them than grouse as the grouse will not hold at all here in southern NB. Once freeze up happens, they will be gone.

Had some timberdoodle for supper last night. smile

My SKB is choked IC/M. Seems a bit tight. May get it done in SK/IC.

Been out a few more times but forgot to take pictures in the field. Took my new 1938 3 Shot Sweet Sixteen out and shot it pretty well.
