    JP started limping Monday and has been favoring his front left since so I took him to the vet. He broke a toenail in SD but not all the way back to the quick, well that toe is swollen so he's on an anti inflammatory and antibiotics. Two weeks off work as per vets orders.

    Not fair during hunting season, JP. Get a second opinion!

    For hunters, Fall is the island towards which we swim all year.

    No doubt about that. He will be one upset pup this weekend.

    Be VERY careful with broken toenails. I had to deal with a blood infection once. Almost lost her. Antibiotics are an excellent call.

    Exactly what I thought when I saw the swelling even though the toenail broke before the quick and didn't bleed. Straight to the vet when it swelled.

    Hunting without JP just isn't the same as having the old man out. Bud and Daisey did a fine job though and produced 10 hens and two roosters (a bit out of range) today but none came home. The weather coming in should help out a ton. I did get a few "shots" in anyways.

    Opening weekend in the marsh was hot and tough. We found 3 hens and all the roosters would flush well before we got to them. Today Molly and I decided to hit the marsh following the youth hunt yesterday. They planted 130ish birds and only 37 came home Saturday. So our odds had to be good! We set off in the rain and she quickly pointed. The bird flushed before I could get in position to flush but I managed to get a shot. The bird sailed out of sight and I swore I missed but we took off after him. Molly ended up tracking the wounded bird and retrieving him about 50 yards away. A nice tail feather and a closed beak sealed the deal. He was a wild one. We got our second a while later. I'm sure I would have had a chance at a third if I stuck around but I was happy with the two and probably carrying another 10 pounds of water weight! Good times!

    Good deal!

    Can't wait for JP to get off the injured reserve, my brothers dogs are fine but it's just not the same leaving the old man at home.

    Well I was planning on heading out today but just as I was leaving my driveway to go hunting I got called in to work. Spent twelve hours plowing snow and cutting downed trees instead of hunting.
