    Made a quick run before work this morning. What a beautiful day to be out. Crisp air, good dog work, and birds a flushing.

    Agreed. Nice cool weather felt good AND finally enough ice to walk on...mostly.

    Got 2 yesterday but skunked today.

    Took a while but had a great finish to the morning. I know one landowner that will be getting another round of fish and sausage this winter. 93056F21-57DA-4CC1-AAE4-A80ACB47E9EA.jpeg 991B04B7-BE9A-4D30-8835-31130F4985C7.jpeg

    Went Deer hunting along the lake shore first thing. Saw one but couldn’t get a bead on it. Seen Black ducks, mallards, mergansers, eagles and a few thousand geese.

    Changed barrels and Took Tucker for a walk on public land. Found two sets of pheasant tracks and followed them. Flushed two, a hen and a rooster.

    Did a stalk on about 71 turkeys while wearing orange. Crawled to within 25yrds. Got two.

    Pheasant is almost as big as the babies.

    This is the look your dog gives you when you whiff the first time in 3 days worth of hunting. She’s not too happy with me right now.

    8FB3FDDC-CA82-4887-B265-5DD084AFAFB3.jpeg Three full mornings of hunting. I’ve put on 13.5 miles, I bet she’s around 40 miles. Her feet are getting pretty beat up, going to need a couple of days off. And yet I bet if I grabbed her vest right now she’d jump off the couch and be ready to go.

    This was our second rooster today. Just as I was snapping the camera a rooster cackled. I had to laugh when he spun his head! :l
