Seasons are Winding Down

Postby AverageGuy » Sat Jan 13, 2018 1:26 pm

Spud and I have been making short hunts daily as the seasons are coming to a close. Finding quite a few hens, a few roosters in range, and some Bobwhites along the way.

Spud got this late season long Spurred Rooster pointed. I should have stoned it but instead dropped it alive into that sea of cover. Spud raced to his Mark and made short work baling me out.

I got careless when I took the live Rooster from Spud and he immediately put his spurs to work on my wrist through 3 layers of long underwear, shirt with brush sleeves and a upland hunting windbreaker.

A covey of nervous Bobwhites 50 yards ahead of Spud through thick Brush.

That was one mean rooster. Otto tried to bring me a live fox he ran down one day. He dropped it at my feet and that fast it jumped up and chomped him in the face. He hasn't brought me anything alive since. Totally jealous of those pheasant pics I haven't seen a live one since the 80s.
