Not a bad way to start the season. Booker did some really nice work this morning on Pheasant for me, sorry no photos, just too much action to be fooling with the camera. I did get this clip of one of his retrieves. Powder did some great work on a couple of coveys of Valley Quail, but I was too busy try to stay upright to get any shots from either my twenty gauge or camera. I hope you enjoy the clip...
Powder and I got skunked on Valley Quail today, but pup was able to have lot of fun with Pheasant! I was hoping we might get lucky and find some Quail in the larger structure, or even pick up a random covey of Hungarian Partridge along an edge, but no there were Pheasant by the truck load, which was fun enough for us to almost be late to meet the Fosters. Here is a link to 1/3 of the video I thought I had shot - enjoy!
I'm just a guy suffering with an infatuation with gundogs since childhood. Forty some odd years later this is what you get.
