The wife and had the GSP out for a short run this afternoon. We walked out from the house so there was no hunt involved, just a nice warm day to be out. Neither the dog or I are acclimated to these warm days yet.

It is 80 degrees here, I walked my setter this morning when it was 70 but I would not have let her hunt, too hot.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

It only made it to about 70 here but that is too hot for the dog and me too. It would not be so bad if we were used to it, but we aren't.

When there is no frost, it is too hot for me. I almost lost a setter hunting him in 70 degree weather. I won't let than happen again.

I took big time advantage of the weather today. Ran my dog in the yard for a while, trimmed up a bunch of brush and got my chainsaw all ready and cut some trees down. I want to get as much of this yard work done when I can as possible. That way I won't be tied up when I should be trout fishing or gobbler hunting this spring. Oh yeah, I also charged the battery, changed the oil and sharpened the blades on my riding mower today.

I carried my 20 gauge and a pocket full of 6 shot on Saturday while I was setting the trail cameras out. Brought home 1 squirrel and whipped up an awesome squirrel cacciatore on Sunday for lunch! Might get out for a little bit tomorrow afternoon, too.

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

Yeah, lol. And too hot for the dogs? I guess they don't train in the summer? Eh, everything's wet and there's water everywhere from the melt and my dogs gotta run.
