    Nice job! We've been into birds every time out also, plenty of birds again this year.

    GREAT JOB !!!!! Pass it on, it might be what keeps them out of trouble.

    Great reports and photo's guys. I am kinda of out of the bird hunting seen since Cookie passed, but really enjoy following you all.

    Thanks! Since Photo Bucket is no longer I'm going to have to find something else!

    While cleaning some more birds and examine them closer, I can see they are way smaller and no where near as colorful and brilliant as the birds of the past.

    Had a first this weekend, was out on Friday on the local game lands, was having a good day, got into some birds and was just really enjoying the day with my three labs.. When my black lab got caught in a trap, this was a first for me, although it was a legal set, I thought the location of the trap was placed in a very poor location.. the dog was fine once cleared from the trap, but can't say the same for my hand.. I understand that the advised way to handle this situation when hunting alone is to wait until your dog calms down before trying to clear them, but... that just wan't something I could do, so as a result I ended up getting bit on the hand while trying to clear him.. I guess better that I'm hurt versus him since we leave for SD next friday.. Anyway I wish there was some way that these traps could be indentified before our dogs get caught in them..

    That's always a tough situation. I've been there whether it be with barbed wire fences, traps, fights, porky etc.. If you wait the dog may tear up his joints etc., I would probably have done the same thing, even though the book says to wait. Someone trapping on SGL's where they know birds are released...well what can you say!

    Welcome to the site, sit back and read some of the old Posts, a lot of guys with the same passion, unfortunately Photo- Bucket removed most of the photo's.
    Good luck in S.D. !

    I had off from work today so I met up with a friend and went to the gamelands. There were a decent number of cars in the parking areas but we had plenty of room to hunt and didn't see many people in the fields. The dogs worked well and we moved about 8 roosters and two woodcock. My friend got his first ever woodcock and one rooster. I bagged two roosters on the day. One of the pheasants and the woodcock were water retrieves for the dogs. It was an enjoyable day and I plan to go out again on Saturday morning. I'll be meeting up with my same friend who will be bringing his daughter along. Our goal is to get her a bird for her first time.

    Was out on Saturday morning with my friend who brought his daughter. Our goal was to get her a bird for the first time. The dogs had a few points in the first 45 minutes but she wasn't able to connect on a shot. By that time she had enough walking and she wanted to go home. She enjoyed her time with the dogs and left the field happy which is all we can ask for. I stayed a little bit longer and managed to take one bird and missed another. It was a good two days of hunting.

    It's to bad she didn't connect but at least she had a good time!
    Is it just me or is there more guys afield this year than in recent memory? We've seen guys every day that we've been out! At least there are plenty of birds!
