Today's Grouse Hunt

Took the day off from work since I had to pick up my daughter in State College as she had just finished her first semester at Penn State. Decided to take a quick hunt in the morning before Lilly and I headed down to pick her up. Lilly ended up pointing 17 birds by noon and I knocked down a limit. Some pics from the hunt.

Lilly picking up the first bird. Just prior to this, I wiffed on a group of 5 birds. Four came out of the second group.



The second bird was a single that came out of a huge barberry patch. I knew I didn't hit it good and after about 10 minutes of Lilly searching, I began to wonder if she would find it. I can't remember the last time Lilly couldn't find a cripple. Just as I began doubting her, her bell went silent.



About 10 yards in front of her was the bird. After a quick chase through the barberry, she brought the bird back



A couple of points from Lilly. The second one looks great but it was actually a porcupine. Nice looking point though.





The day's take:

Beautiful pics of a great time spent in the field. I have some vacation to burn next week and intend to spend it hunting some winter cover.

Brush, good luck next week, I'll be out too...I hope this good weather holds up.

Pheasant, to post pictures, what I did was establish a photobucket account then you can copy and past the IMG image for the photo you want to post. It is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. If I can do it, anyone can.

Very nice hunt, nice pics. You forgot to include the porky in the "day's take".
