End of the day

Hard hunt for the limit. End of the day- tired and successful. We were out of the truck at 0800 and in the Alfalfa. By 0810, we both had birds in the bag and wondering about what we would do with the rest of the day after hitting our limit in 40 minutes! By 2 pm, the temp was 82 deg. with the sun beating down and we still had a bird apiece. We reverted to combat hot weather grouse rules and went back to the motel for a combat nap. We recovered at 5pm and hit a huge alfalfa field at 5:45. We had 3 birds apiece in 30 minutes with Ace the star. What a great ending to a possibly poor day. It was incredible the number of birds we got up. The first flock was 30+ and the latter flushes were 10+. This was a great day....
