My Mid-Season Bird Hunting PE...Part 2

The first snowfall of the season came to my covers in late October...with it brought some beautiful scenery and some flights of woodcock.





One morning as Dad and I were driving to our spot for our morning hunt, this guy appeared on the road. I stopped the vehicle, snapped a picture and walked toward him to see how close I could get...well he had many friends (7 to be exact) with him. My dad said Lilly about went through the windshield when the covey busted.



A hunted a few of my old covers this year and a few new ones. The second pic is a nasty cover that holds both woodcock and grouse.





Woodcock season finds me shooting at less birds each year...I think I am starting to get soft. However, I did take a few birds for Lilly.





I don't know why but of all the photos I have taken of Lilly, for some reason this is one of my favorites. I wish I could have moments like this with her forever but at 9 1/2 years old, I know her hunting days are winding down. After the season, I will have this photo blown up and hung in my "man cave"



Well that's it...hope everyone has a safe hunting season...

Thanks for sharing!
That's on thing I need to make more time for; pre season recon.
Especially since I live in the grouse Mecca of SCPA

I agree, that is one darn nice photo. Seems to just say it all!

If it weren't for Bird Dogs and Upland Game Birds I would be just another Bored Old Man!

Nice Joe. I can see the age in Lilly's face now. She still looks great on point.

400 PA Grouse... Congratulations. I wonder if there is anybody alive that can come close to that? I doubt it.

Gorgeous dog, birds, and countryside. I'm not ashamed to say it - I'm jealous.

You're living the life, my man. And more importantly, I have a feeling you know and appreciate that fact. Good for you.

Nate...I know I can see it in her face too. 400 grouse does seem like a lot but over 20+ years it really isn't...just a lot of time in the field. From what I know about your shooting ability, it won't take you that long to get there.
