Awesome pic of the boys. You are doing a great job of passing on your passion for upland hunting Birddog. Hope to be hunting with you and the boys again sooner than later.

Chuks=1

Me=Goose egg

Three hundred yds from the truck with little light for the lens I hear a deuce of beepers going off. I'm thinking "Hell yes, here we go" to only find notta. I believe the pup being wouned up bumped them. An hour later the hounds were worthless due to the heat, good thing too the snakes were on the prowl. We called er a day @ 9;45am

That's a beautiful gopher snake Thom. Did you catch him? My boys love bringing pets home from the mountain. Henry carried this beautiful spider on a deer shed for three miles back the the truck. At one point he said, "dad, maybe you could carry my spider under your hat, I really don't think he would bite you,"

We didn't see or hear a single chukar but we jumped a nice buck.

We got taken to the cleaners today ourselves, 9 Miles for us, ~28 Miles for the dogs (each), and 6800 vert (up down). No huns or chukar were seen or heard from. We had two solid points today on sage grouse and must have chased them around the range because our second solid point was again sage grouse. There were 5 total in one flush we had. We did bump a single dusky but got caught off guard thinking it was another sage grouse, no shots fired. It was a wet day. The afternoon was better than the AM and dried up, but still no birds. As my mom would say, “I’m pooped!”

 

 Here’s a distant shot I took of Big Foot, I swear, he really exists and carries a shotgun and has a white pointer (seen to the far right)! 😜

Note to self.  If wind is in the forecast don't go. :S   Went from cinch the cap to flip it backwards to sticking it in the vest.  Headache did to manage to flush two just out of range and then heard another cluck in the vertical rocks I wouldn't dare take him out to.  But it was a good morning!

Hey all, went out today solo after our Annual Church Dinner/Fair.  Decided to hit one of my good spots.  Didn't see any grouse today, but Raina pointed a couple of nice roosters.  Flushed up some Huns and managed one from that covey.  Flushed up another covey and managed a double for a limit. I felt like Ben O. Williams!  

 

I used my 16ga FN
