First Day Blues
Typically, it's warm. No exception this day. Fortunately a breeze and a few clouds early on would make for pleasant walking.
Birds? Not many. Addie pointed a couple of blue grouse around mid-day. They gave us the slip.
No shots fired.
For the pup, just another day of adventure........
For the older dogs, another day at the "office". But it sure beats work!
I later bumped and flushed a single. A big male blue. Of course he lit in a tree and peered down at us defiantly. Treed birds aren't fair game. When they fly, ok. He flew.
Shots fired. He's probably still flying. At least Katie got a whiff of bird.
One final mid afternoon walk and we were played out. Katie found part of a deer leg. She proudly carried it back to the truck. In her mind the day was a resounding success.
Who needs birds when you've got a bone?
