Knocked out 4

Well I didn't get any pictures but we did have a great day of bunny running. Ended up having 5 dogs down including my male coming off his injury. I just wanted to ease him into it again since he's been laid up for so long. Well that did not go as planned.

I bet we ran 10-12 rabbits and he got better and better with each one. All of the dogs did a good job and I even got to see my 7 month old pup leading the pack a few times, now that was cool. We hunted for just shy of 6 hours and the dogs put on 17.6 miles accoring to Garmin, it was heads up. You would have never known he had been laid up (other than a few minuses), was still ready to go after some more.

Too make it even better there were times during the hunt it was snowing so hard you couldn't see 25 yards. There is just something about 5 hounds putting the heat on rabbit in the middle of a hollow on a cold snowy morning!! I'm sorry but you just cannot top it from a platform stand!! You know it's good when there are pheasant hunters standing in the field just listening to the dogs.

But we should all hire Andy P for our photographer.
That boy missed his calling in life.
