    We took the crew out to shoot quail today, 40 birds put out, and 35 came home. No pics, but the crew did quite well.

    If youda listened to her, you wouldn't be dragging your feet through the hole in the floorboards trying to get stopped.

    As far as dog work goes, I need to get the pigeon traps out to my buddy's barn and silo and reduce his pigeon problem, let the dogs point a few before the weather gets hot.

    I accidently took my dog out today. I always let my dog out every night when I wash the kennel out. Well tonight I was washing the 4 wheeler off at the same time and she stayed around me for about 10 minutes just being nosey. I lost her and started to holler. She didnt come, so I went searching. There is a small swamp behind our garage and thats where she was locked tight. I managed to snap off a couple shots on my cell phone before I flushed the bird. Now if I could only manage to get these cellphone pics on here:confused:

    Im planning on heading to the strips this weekend to chase some woodcock. There were some flew back in the fall there, so Im sure theyll stop back by on their way home.

    Phooey on your little worm suckers. My dog pointed a pair of grouse in the holler behind the house tonight. She went on point in a little patch of cover no bigger than momma's kitchen, and after I flushed the first bird, she took couple of steps and pointed again, and I flushed that one too. I watched it fly up the holler about 50 yards and land on a grapevine. While the dog was birdy in the thicket, I walked under that grouse and threw rocks at it. Of course, I had no camera or phone, just a 22 rifle. It sat right there with me under it until the dog caught up, then it flushed and followed its partner up the holler.

    I hope they were a breeding pair. There isn't much cover for them but maybe there is enough. Keeping the fingers crossed...

    I found my two little birds behind the house again last night. The pup pointed, appeared unsure, and started working up the hill. She pointed again, and I could tell by her beady little eyes she was looking at the bird. Sure enough, I looked out front about 20 yards and there was the bird walking out quick. She couldn't stand it and broke, ran it up, and ran up #2 in the process. I called her back pretty easily, made her stand where the point had been, and petted her up like she was a champ.

    I hope those birds are a happy couple getting ready to raise a brood. I'll stay off that side of the hill in April and May.

    Proud of that one aren't we? Nothing like a youngster figuring it out.

    Hey I finally got onto this thing. Took two years. Maybe we can meet sometime and run dogs or hunt.

    Yes we are proud. Been too long without a bird dog.

    Show us some pictures of those no-good Knott Co. dogs you fool with. As I recall they were purty.

    Trust Me,

    Since moving I will never be able to do what you said again. Walking out your back door into grouse cover ! Cherish that ! I myself took many things for granted but we do what's best for the family.
