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.
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.
