Colorado Pheasant Hunt

Took my dad pheasant hunting this morning at a WIA in Eastern Colorado. He wasn't able to last year due to chemo therapy for lymphoma. Never hunted this WIA before and wasn't sure what to expect. It was definitely too much area for one dog to cover but we did manage bag a few birds.
