Got another one hooked on bird hunting

I mentioned my hunt with daughter a few weeks back to a friend from work, named Todd, who immediately expressed interest in going sometime. With MLK day upon us, we made it happen. I let him borrow my 12 GA Benelli Super Black Eagle II and I used the 20 GA Browning Citori White Lightning. I got Bolt back out to sniff them out, but changed things up by adding some chukar partridge to the mix. He wasn't thrown in the least and once again did extremely well. He found every bird we put out and we downed all but one. Despite what the picture shows, we actually shot 6 chukars and 3 pheasants, but one hen that Todd shot was just completely obliterated. He learned the same lesson I re-learned my last time out about giving them a second to gain separation.

Yeah, Todd was like a kid in a candy store. I don't think this is the last time we'll be doing this.

    How can you not dig that! Awesome. I took my nephew out duck hunting right before X-mas for the first time. I saw him last weekend for the first time since, he said he can't even sleep at night, hunting ducks is all he can think about. Good stuff right there!

    Looks like the weather cooperated, I have not shot or eaten a chukkar, yet. Dog looks like he is still hunting.

    Is that Stull's, or another hunting preserve?

    The dog is always on the hunt. The hardest part of the day is getting him back in the truck!

    As for the preserve, this one is Cherrybend Pheasant Farm. I have yet to try out Stull's, but it's on my list. Gonna try a few and probably member-up. I figure the dog needs the work to stay sharp and I really enjoy upland hunting.
