A Great Day For The Dogs

It's 12 degrees outside and I asked my oldest daughter "what do you want to do today?" She responds - "Let's take Bailey and Dani to the pheasant preserve". So, due to the ridiculous cold temperatures, there was an opening at the preserve we hunt near our house today, so we went this afternoon with our 10 year old Britt - Bailey, and her "sister" Dani the English Setter. Had a great day despite the biting wind, getting 12 pheasants and 1 chuckar. The dogs loved the cold weather and the birds held well in the sorghum and switchgrass. I feel so lucky to have daughters that hunt, and can shoot really well also! A few pics I thought were noteworthy.

Nice hunt. Beats sitting in the house complaining about the temps. I bet the dogs loved the run too.

Indeed - only time it was "challenging" was walking into the wind, then you couldn't feel your face! Dogs had a blast and definitely didn't worry about overheating.
