A little more February training.
Riley and I had another great day on the mountain. We had several encounters and I thought I'd share this set of photos with you. It gives me a chance to brag on his steadiness. I circled to Riley's right as I usually do and then move towards him thinking we had the bird pinned. At five yards I couldn't see a bird so I reversed directions and walked away from Riley figuring the bird was out a ways. After walking about thirty yards and Riley not budging I knew the bird had to be right there. So I started walking back towards Riley and sure enough, not three yards from Riley, a lone hun busted. I allow Riley to break on the flush as long as it's only a 10 to 20 yard chase until he realizes there is no shot. I have to admit, I'd rather have a shotgun in hand but the camera takes a close second place.
