    Default Story Time

    Tell some stories about events while afield or just while out and about the fields, coverts, and bird ranches.

    Here's one:

    Banter from a few years back heard on a Friday night rock and roll program on High Plains Public Radio (Garden City KS) hosted by a teenage-sounding DJ and her friend/on-air guest:

    DJ: Did you hear “Julie” got busted?
    Guest: Yeah, I heard.
    DJ: But she won’t get into trouble because her dad’s a big-all lawyer.
    Guest: Yeah, I know. My daddy’s a radiator man and I am always in trouble.

    I was out hunting at my wife's family's. 2010 a really good year. Was the Last Sunday of the season and my brother in law and I were over at my wife's uncle's pretty much hanging out. Her uncle had put me in the bucket of a tractor so I could hook a chain to a tree next to a garage he was putting up that he wanted down.
    I had my dog locked up in the kennel in the back of my pickup. While in the tree my wife's uncles sisters showed up and were milling around and decided the dog didn't need locked up. They let him out and he belined for my wife's uncles last laying chicken.

    This year same brother in law who had been with me back then. My sisters husband. Last day of the season and we were out hunting some of my family's and had run by a friend of my dad's to see if it was allright if we hunted on his. Standing at the bottom of the stairs talking to the landowners wife my brother in law reaches over to lean on the railing and hits a light fixture . Knocks it off and it smashes on the ground.

    In my younger days, before I owned a dog, my buddy & I were driving from one hunting spot to another & a rooster ran across the road in front of us. I had my 12 ga. T/C New Englander muzzle loader w/ me in the front seat. (That’s another novel altogether.) Stopped, got out & quickly put a cap on the nipple, bird got up & flew back across the road. I hammered it at about 20 yards (tops) & once the smoke cleared, it was laying there, dead in the road. Put the gun back in the truck & walked over to pick it up & it sprinted down into the ditch & into a slough w/ a lot of snow in it – so clumps of cattails left bent over here & there. I knew precisely which clump it ran into & the only chance I had was to get down on all 4’s & crawl in there. You know, the work dogs perform way better than humans. So I’m down in there crawling around & in the little light there was, after about 10 minutes I finally see 2 long tail feathers poking out of the snow right in front of my face. Lunged forward & grabbed him. Success!!! I couldn’t believe the bird had any life whatsoever left in him after the pounding he’d taken from my blunderbuss. When cleaning him, he had both legs shattered, both wings shattered & about 10 body hits. He was messed up good. Yet still managed to do a pretty good Carl Lewis impression. It’s partially because of this bird that as a dog guy today, I don’t want my dog “steady to wing & shot”. I want him on that bird ASAP, hitting him like a freight train.

    Good story. Yeah, that steady business is questionable for anyone other than a trials dog.

    About 30 years ago there were 3 of us hunting a very poor low corn field in Iowa with no dogs. A bird got up way ahead of us (out of range in my mind) crossing shot and 1 of the guys shot and knocked it down. We all started running 3 abreast as that bird did not go in hard. As we are running suddenly the other 2 guys drop out and I continue on and actually find the bird. When I return Jim is laid out on the ground and Rick standing over him, Rick says we gotta get Jim to the hospital he needs stitches. Jim has a nasty cut above his eyebrow. As he was running carrying his gun sideways he hit a corn stock and you know the rest. Well I looked at it and agreed, but Jim stated "Fock that it'll scar up and make Sally horny as hell" (his wife at the time). We continued to hunt.
