More Pheasants and Quail

Here in Idaho, you have to work for your pheasants. We worked hard on this hunt. It was dry with very little wind and with Gracie being semi retired, retrieving has been more challenging. Will have to change my hunting style until I can work a little more with the younger dogs trailing cripples.

First snow we get, I will be looking to teach them the art of trailing birds in hopes of one becoming a little more like Gracie.

The Tri-Star performed well, but stretching the magazine tube spring before each hunt is critical.
