Birds in the field

I noticed several rooster Pheasants spending the afternoon in our pasture, so when I let the dogs out to run, they were all over the scent. Elvis and Sophie had a long day of therapy work on Friday, and Doc and Mia are going through withdrawal because I’m not hunting them every weekend as they’re accustomed to, so everyone needed a good run in the pasture.

Doc came onto fresh scent along the ditch bank and went on a nice point. Elvis came up and I “whoa’d” him, then he then caught the bird’s scent and re-positioned to honor Doc. I couldn’t see a bird so I gave them my “track” command and they were off tracking the bird.

Meanwhile, Mia and the Labs were in the pasture searching the grass and weeds.

I also added several photos of a morning hunt in which our son-in-law accompanied Doc and I. Unfortunately we didn’t see a sign of Pheasants, and wasn’t able to get a shot at any of the ducks that were flying.

  1. LOL our dogs help with the decoys too. I think the early snow really messed up the bird season this year. The only real birds our dogs got were at a pheasant preserve. Thank goodness we found one nearby so they can at least get some work.
