A Holiday for the Generations (Pic Heavy)

It has become a family tradition to hunt birds with my father, brother, and nephew as well as a friend or two on Thanksgiving morning. I started the tradition when my nephew was very small to introduce him to hunting with dogs much like my grandfather did for me with his love for beagles and giving me a pup when I was a little boy. That introduction gave me a life long love for training, hunting, and the appreciation for any type of dog that hunts. I am sure grandad is still looking down on us and enjoying another generation of "dog guys".

The generations of bird shooter......aters.............. Actually, we did very well and had a beautiful day to enjoy what god has blessed me with.



A nice point by my 17 month old pointer backed by my buddies 18 month old Brit with the nephew moving in to flush.



Here is another point by my young pointer that did so well in Michigan on grouse and woodcock in October. He is a real keeper. Tremendous nose and style and is extemely steady on first scent. The rooster was located almost at my feet at the bottom of the photo holding very tight in the switchgrass. I had to look for a while before he flushed because the point was so far away.



Here is another point on the same young dog. He is enjoying the scent of the bird if you look closely at his mouth.



Dad about to enjoy the labors of the young dogs work.



My brother working into a point by both the Pointer and Brittany.



A couple of more nice finds by the dogs.















And the picture that my sister in law wants to frame of my nephew moving in to flush on a double find.



Family and a wonderful day in the field. I don't beleive there is a better day possible. When times gets tough, I think of these days and look at the pictures and know that I am truly a blessed man.

Very nice pictures. I'm sure your nephew will remember these times.

Were these birds that have been out for a while?

Re: A Holiday for the Generations (Pic Heavy)

We hunt everything that is still around on these days. Pheasant that will wild flush at a hundred yards and the quail coveys that have been here for the last few years. We shot about 20 birds and dad, nephew, and brother did most of the shooting and missed many more than that. Particularly the covey flushes on quail. My only rule is only taking a few quail from each of the coveys so not to stress the numbers this close to bad weather. Also, for the guys who don't know, the bird take is legal on the 1200 acres I have permitted as a regulated shooting ground.

Nice way to spend the morning. Good looking setter in there too.

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.
