Planned Pheasant Hunt with Bailey

Bailey and I head off with our friend, Ken Kuivenhoven for his farm house on the plains of South Dakota on October 15th.

Outside of Ken's front door is fifty square miles of public access hunting lands.

Two of the dogs going are Ken and Janet's great young Vizslas, Scarlet and Hank (Bailey's Vizsla field trial buddies.)

This video, I found on You Tube, shows pheasants EVERYWHERE. 
In South Dakota, hunting time does not start until 10:00 am, so you can walk the fields for a couple hours and look but not fire your gun. 

I don't think we will see this many, but maybe.

I am very excited to take my newly trained bird dog to this upland bird hunting paradise.   "A Dog's purpose" fulfilled.

Another redbirddog adventure is coming up.

The "Redbirddog" blog has just crossed the 10,000 internet visit plateau.   Thank you for visiting.  Come back soon.

I've never seen so many pheasants in my life as on that video. I'm really looking forward to the hunt Rod - but I don't figure we'll see birds in quantities like that! WOW!

Did you hear about the 100 birds they banded? if someone shoots a banded one they get to be entered for 1,000,000 dollars.. or something like that. Look into it.
