Well I took a break from archery hunting the family farm to head to the northern tier for a weekend of bIrd hunting and trout fishing. Could God have created a more perfect month than October? The problem is, there is too much good huntIng and fishing to do in such a short time. Maybe in heaven for some of us every month will be October? One can only dream.
I had a great time with my cousin Pete and my Springer Cosmo. We failed to locate any grouse in the morning but we managed to get on some woodcock by lunchtime. Cosmo did his part and put five in the air and of course we failed to do ours and not bag any of them. Sunday we fished pine creek and the trout were plentiful and active. Caught and released 8 scrappy brown trout on dry flies under the watchful eye of a bald eagle. Here are a few pics from the weekend.
