Been a great season so far. Buddy is 3 now and has become a bullet proof dog. Bear is my newest Brittany and is only 7 months old but has really done well so far.

Took the sisters pup out for his first hunt. This little guy got his first rooster on his first hunt! A little timid in the beginning, but he warmed up to it and later couldnt resist those feathers! Good day for him, all tuckered out and ready for round 2. (was a wild rooster)

Hunted east side, 11/15.

I find they fly slower and often make a "clucking" sound.

As Forks stated the "Clucking" noise they make is a dead give away, they also have a white underbelly. When hunting with us you learn to ID them quite fast, if you accidentally shoot a hen it cost a steak dinner for everyone that is with us for the day..  :bdid:..
Yesterday we were into covey's of over 100 birds.  This cold weather is really consolidating them..

Forks
The Sharpies are holding tighter now then they were in September.  Where we hunt (just south of Havre) it has been below freezing for the past few weeks.  We are finding them at tops of draws that lead into wheat fields.  The majority of them when flushed are just flying 100 yards or so to the next draw to be worked again.  They are not blowing out and going for miles like we see earlier in the year.  This will be our last weekend hunting them our season ends the 15th.  Packing up and heading back to WA. next week.  It's been a great season, have been over here since the middle of September..We will have to meet up I'm just a 1/2 hour so of Olympia when in WA.

Three went up, two went down.
Nice looking dogs, I forget what they are called. When I get another bird dog that's what I want. Do you breed them?

They've appeared other places in this forum and other forums, but these have also appeared in magazine articles.

If you'd like to get a photo in a magazine, look at the composition of these images.  There's a human, birds IN HAND and a gun.  Always have birds in hand. With a dog, kneel with the dog, keep birds in hand, cradle shotgun in elbow,
SMILE! (We're telegraphing that this is fun. We're having a good time. It's enjoyable and exciting.)

Good luck, good shooting and drive careful.
