    Actually neither of them are directly from Troy but there are definitely Prairie Drifter dogs in the ped. I honestly think mountain quail are easier to hunt in the Sierra Nevada than they are in the Cascades but there's definitely a bunch of them up there, a few ruffs even in places.

    That Wager Creek Spugeon is my twos Grand sire too. He's in Troy's Kennel now.

    Ok, my setter is out of Troys kennel. She is coming along nicely. Yeah i saw a few ruffs and another grouse that i wasnt sure which species it was. Plus all the poison oak would be a hassel to deal with too.

    Soggy morning in the grasslands. Lady and Bud found a few birds and my brother got a rooster. I took the new dog Roy on a walk so no gun for me today.

    Another day in the grasslands. We saw 2 hens and 2 roosters and my buddy Alex connected on his first wild, California rooster. So glad to be there and be a part of it.

    Spent the weekend on the Eastside hunting quail and chukar with a good friend of mine. The dogs worked awesome finding three coveys of chukar but they all flushed wild as we approached. Dropped down to the sage and found lots of quail and even a few snipe. All in all a great time to be out.
