Took today off from work and had our first cottontail hunt since deer season ended. Hunted with a few of my retired buddies.
We ran all of our male dogs and the ages varied from my 13 month old Duke (who had a nice day on only his second cottontail hunt, he hammered some hare for 3 days as well.) to my 3 1/2 year old Luke.
He was a real savior today.
Running was a bit spotty at first on the frozen ground but these young dogs hung right in there and made a good day of it.
The 3 of us had our limits in about 6 hours and had about a dozen more go to ground.
Nice day John. I was out shot at two Della and Lucy ran real well today it was alot of fun, they ran one for well over 1 1/2 hours in the corn field most of the time. Della is running real well and also has alot of hunt in her.
