Bird Dog Kentucky Whiskey

A classic 1973 Heritage china hunter and hunting dog decanter Ezra Brooks liquor bottle #185, A Hungarian Pointer and pheasant flushed picture framed, and a pint of Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey.  These items seem to go together very well.
Never would I hunt with ANY liquor in the blood, but after a good day in the field, a nice glass of  quality Kentucky Bourbon "neat" makes for a fine finish of a great day.

Hidden Treasure - Salt Lake City - Neff's Canyon

Neff's Canyon.
 is a hikers wonderland in the fall. 
Erie and Seeker stand next to me at the entrance to the trailhead.

 I was lucky enough to have to be in Salt Lake City late this week and took the opportunity to meet up with some local Vizsla owners for a brisk 2.5 mile hike up Neff's Canyon just south east of down town Salt Lake City.

Kadee and Tunde show me the way up the canyon

These pictures were taken from my new Polaroid Cube.  A cool little unit,

It fits in your pocket, takes videos and does a good job on hikes.  Just came out this month.

On a bright and sunny Saturday morning starting at 9:00 a.m. Three local Vizslas (Tibor, Erie and Seeker) joined Kadee, Tunde, and me for a two-hour hike up the canyon.  The canyon goes up for 5.5 miles and climbs a total of 3,600 feet.  We did a little less than half of the climb before running out of time.  I had to get to the airport.

Thanks Kadee for showing me this hidden treasure.

Next time that I am in Utah, I hope to bring Bailey and Chloe.
I'll make it to the top!

 This was the second hike I took east of Salt Lake City.  I had gone out the afternoon before on a trail just east of the University of Utah campus.

 Sometimes I just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Ramon was good enough to join us on our 6-mile hike.

Three Ways an Artist Cooks Pheasant

The above attached thirty photo set shows how an artist prepares pheasant. (Tap on above link to open)

Maria is a friend who had never cooked a pheasant before.  So after my hunt Sunday I visited Scott and Maria  ("California Transylvanian Hounds") with three birds right from the fields of Hastings.

I showed Maria how to dress the first pheasant and she learned quickly and had the other two birds done flawlessly after that.

We're on the way over to give her efforts a taste.  Very much looking forward to it.
