Sunrise and Doves

Yesterday I spent the day chasing doves with my uncle Dan! We had a fantastic time! We were three short of a limit, but we weren't in it for the the numbers.

The dogs worked great! Lady did a fantastic job retrieving, better than she has in years past. It never ceases to amaze me how she improves every year.

My dad started feeding a cup of Eukanuba mixed with Iams this week, so I guess that means it is officially my favorite time of year. I believe Eukanuba helps Lady's scenting ability in amazing ways. Even though it was hot and dry she found all my downed doves.


The dogs taking a dip in a watering trough and enjoying a mud bath.


This is the sweetest girl in the world helping me carry my gear inside after the hunt. I could get used to seeing her with a gun in hand and an orange vest. I really am the luckiest guy on earth.

We miss you two! What do we have to do to see you again?

A wise dog once taught me that it's not important to BE the luckiest guy on earth, only to THINK you are.

Sounds like y'all had better luck with the doves than I did on the opener. Looks like you hunt in some pretty country...
