Its always windy in Moses Lake. Or so it seems. I take the family up there to see the wife's parents, all the time, and it always seem to blow more in the fall and winter.

Good Rock Chuck shooting up there though.  :tup:

I haven't had the opportunity to any real hunting up there.

No opener for me but i really cant complain because my dad took my 10 month old pup to Eastern Montana to chase Roosters so that experience will be way more beneficial for her! Cant wait to hear how she does and to hunt over her myself in 2 weeks

Never trust a weather report.  The winds were last night and died down.  Looks reasonable for the remainder of the weekend.  Originally it called for gusts close to 40mph.

Went out for a couple hours.  Wind was blowing hard.  Dog pointed 5 coveys.  Of course I missed all my shots.  Buddy ended up dropping one bird.   Gonna hit it again tomorrow and try to redeem myself.

Was pretty windy in most of the spots we hit today, but my 7 month old pup got his first retrieve on a hun today! It was awesome to hunt with him for the first time.

 These guys did 20 miles and found a few in 30-40mph wind, called it a day at 10 due to heat.
