    Ha! That she is. Cracked a toenail and never lost a step, barely got the boot on before she tore off and had another find.

    Had a friend drive out from Minnesota to complete his quail slam this weekend. The pressure was on for me to show him some mountain quail. I decided to meet him up north east ish and give it a go. We didn't tear it up but we ended up moving four coveys of mountains and a couple coveys of valleys and my friend got his slam completed. He ended up with one of the biggest, most pristine mountain quail I've ever seen, it's going to make a beautiful mount.

    Not bionic, just young(ish) and gung-ho still. I have to admit that the young setter's zest for the hunt is infectious and I just love to watch her chew up the ground and find birds.

    Happy New Year my friend.

    Had a very frustrating experience at a new spot today. It was covered up in birds but they were obviously heavily pressured and new all the best escape routes. We moved 6 coveys and tons of singles but only had a handful of shots all day.

    Took Lady to a spot I haven't hunted in a while and remember why now, the stick tights we're terrible. Lady found 3 coveys and quite a few singles and I came home with 4 birds.

    Season is winding down. Had a nice weekend hunting with some good guys and good dogs. We renamed the area "Dead Horse Canyon" after finding two intact horse skulls.
