Day 2 slowed up — 3.5 hunter days and 34 birds. Relatively even on bird counts per dude per day.
One guy just got too hot – it be running 95+.
Was up and out this morning attempting to work birds close for the yellow dog – didn’t happen.
Yesterday, he flushed a rooster/hen pair up — I was on a dike about 15 feet above him – and watched him just sit back for a split second and off he went – lost them quickly in the heavy alfalfa. Doesn’t go another 50 feet in same alfalfa and knocks up a sharpie – off to the races chasing it – lands in a tree about 200 yards out – dog on its tail the entire time while I’m grinning. I had no shot on the sharpie with a 410, and pheasant isn’t open. So, a learning experience for him and I gained another dog memory.
