Vizsla Pheasant Hunt Bird's Landing

Great morning.   60 miles east of where we live is Bird's Landing Hunting Reserve.  Hunted with a couple friends this morning.  They brought their small 7-year-old chocolate lab, Holly.  What a sweet dog!

Bailey locked on a pheasant
 A lab hunts birds differently than a vizsla. 
Holly hunted much closer to her hunter but then flushed the birds without much of a "point".  Bailey,a pointing breed, who hunts much further out, stays "on point" until he is released.

My friend, Charlie, watching Bailey cover the field full tilt

Bailey on point.  When I went to flush the bird, it ran away.

Sometimes the pheasants do just run away.  Bailey had to stay "on point" and not chase after the bird until I released him. 
Five birds for meals over the next few weeks. 

At the club house, "the mascots" hang out in the parking lot.
