Cabin fever

Doc on the hunt

Doc on the hunt

Doc was suffering from cabin fever after three weeks without hunting so Wednesday morning I took him out for a little hunting. I figured that wouldn’t be any other hunters, that they would either be working or shopping for Thanksgiving. Not so.

Doc works the heavy brush.

After nearly two hours of hunting without seeing anything, I loaded Doc into the truck and decided to return home. However Doc made it clear to me that he wasn’t ready to quit, so I detoured out onto the desert to hunt partridge.

Doc on a nice point while hunting partridge. It was two hen Pheasants that are off limits.

We hunted a couple more hours without seeing anything but a pair of hen Pheasants, however it’s illegal to shoot them in Idaho. So I watched them fly off and appreciated the work that Doc had done.

It wasn’t much of a hunt, but it was enough to cure Doc’s cabin fever.

  1. Sometimes just getting out is enough. We will be happy when deer season is over and we can get back out into the forest.
