Short story: nary a shot was fired! We flushed one chukar, and I couldn't get on it fast enough to shoot.

On the other hand, we had a GREAT afternoon! Clark the dog hopped in the Jeep with my son and I, and we headed for the hills above the Columbia River here in Washington. We hiked some mighty steep country!

Conditions were poor. It was afternoon before we could get out. The sun was bright. The wind was strong. Everything was dry as a bone... So, not surprisingly, we didn't get into the birds. However...

We had a great hike in beautiful country. Clark got to work for the first time in months. We saw mule deer, and bighorn sheep! The sheep photos were from my son, using my cell phone, all we had available with us. It was simply a stellar afternoon. And the bird cleaning was rather quick & easy... :)

What? My feet are muddy?    




It was a mighty fine afternoon, despite the lack of birds!

Restricted airspace?
Well, there's always another day. But glad y'all got out and spent time off the pavement!

Must have been a great day Guy!
Only 7 days for deer here, my favorite time of the year...
Best hunting dog I ever had was a German Short hair pointer.
She could find birds many other dogs pasted by....
