First Pheasant Hunt of the season.
First bird of the season above. I have now started my third hunting season. On the first bird taken , I have always stopped for 10 minutes and sat in the field and reflected on how natural this feels to walk through open fields with my dog and find food for our sustenance.
A gift to us from nature.
There is NO WAY Bailey could ever be happier than during our 2 1/2 hour hunt this morning. He was in Dog heaven.
Three birds taken. Seven birds pointed and flushed. Two missed and two were not good shots to take. He handled his birds well and retrieved them all back to me wonderfully.
A great morning with the sun and a gentle breeze blowing in from the west.
