Doc’s morning hunt

I was going after the duck that I winged the day before, but this cow and calf moose changed my mind.

I think it’s good that I’m hunting the guys separately; Mia has been an excellent mentor in teaching Doc what hunting is about, but now it’s time that he gain confidence and experience on his own. In Saturday morning’s hunt, I was pleased to see that he has picked up a lot of Mia’s hunting traits.

I had planned on hunting the stream where I’d winged the duck yesterday and hopefully get it, but a cow and calf moose changed my mind so we hunted in a different direction. We hunted throughout the morning without seeing a bird, and more hunters showed up as the morning wore on making it difficult to find areas to hunt.

No birds in there.

I was running out of options and didn’t want to drive very far, so I decided to hunt along a canal where I’d seen Pheasants before. I was encouraged when two hen Pheasants flushed, but they were the only birds we’d see.

  1. Looks like you had some great weather. Even though they messed up your plan, very cool you saw the moose and got a picture. We have had such a crummy grouse season, we are heading to a pheasant farm tomorrow to try to get Freighter on some birds!
