day in the hills
Seems like in a lot of the web and blog sites things have really slowed down now that hunting season is over. But as I've mentioned many times in the past, this is a great time to be in the hills. Of course, when isn't. I like to Turkey hunt, so I use scouting for turkeys as a great excuse to get my dogs out. The dogs will even point them if they'll hold.
Today we didn't see any turkeys but we saw three different species of upland birds which the dogs were tickled to point all the same. We found five rough grouse, 7 blue grouse, and a number of paired up huns to work on. Although we miss Tucker a lot we've found the best way to honor our lost companion is to go out and do what he did best. Find birds.
Here is a few of the pictures from today. I hope the rest of you are getting out and enjoying your dogs as much as I am mine.
