Back in Action
We're finally home.
That was a great three days of bird hunting. We came home with 20 pheasant, 15 or so quail, and a half dozen chukar in the cooler.
Every shooter hit at least one pair of clays with a single shot on the sporting clays course and John, my brother in law, did it THREE TIMES!!!
The temperatures were in the 40s on the first day and the upper 30s with rain and sleet the second day (today.) Both days my Swanndri Ranger did a great job of keeping me warm and dry and I actually peeled it off for a short while yesterday as the walking was getting me pretty warm.
My Remington 870 worked flawlessly (again) with no maintenance and no cleaning the entire weekend. I'll give it a good scrubbing tomorrow as a reward.
I came home with a strong hankering for a German Short Hair Pointer. I want a pup to train myself for birding.
I met some really great folks from all around the Midwest including Mac and Roger from Kentucky and Tennessee respectively, Chris and his wife also from Kentucky, and the boys from Indianapolis who we met last year at this time.
I want to give a great big Thank You to the Harpoles for their hospitality, their food, and their friendship. Without them none of this would have happened.
Thanks for reading,
