What's waiting at home!


This is Yellar (as in "Old Yellar"). I hate to admit it, but he may be the smartest dog I've ever had. He pretty much runs the house. I caught him peering at us eating lunch one afternoon. Can you see the drool? What a dog.....

Land of Enchantment

Bird numbers are down this year, but I can't resist even just 1 day of hunting this beautiful place. Ice on the ground and 19 deg this morning. I may be a little impatient heading out so early, but it's good anyway.

Wow!

Turns Fast

Beautiful to ugly in less than an hour. Wow, the weather turns fast on the Great Plains. It pays to be ready for anything out here.

Fog and Rain and Snow

On the way. This should be an interesting day! Oh, did I mention the 25-30 mph winds? This might be a good time to evacuate to NM. Dogs are working very hard and well, but the birds are getting 100's of yards out. There's been a lot of hunting pressure here. We'll see what happens today- lots of times, a dramatic weather change affects the bird's behavior.

Very Nice

How will we be remembered. This not far from Loretta, KS. Birds are here but they are real spooky and don't hold for nobody- as they say.
