Great quail hunting day

Great quail hunting day

Postby oldbeek » Sat Dec 02, 2017 11:15 pm

Hunting today for valley quail in some open country. Dog points a bird and I flush it and get a clean kill. As she is retrieving it at a fast pace the bird just rolls out of her mouth. For an instant I am perplexed as what she is doing, then she slides into reverse and points another bird in short grass. Wish I had a camera. There she was pointing with the previous bird laying at her feet. Walked up and shot the second bird clean which landed almost the exact spot the first bird fell. Got another perfect to hand retrieve. That made my day. I just beat prostate cancer and at 76 I am out with my kids and dogs 3 to 4 days a week. Missy has logged 176 miles on her Garmin collar since Oct 20. This is a good life.

That's wonderful oldbeek! Beating cancer can be a battle in itself - one that too few win.
Sounds like the Big Guy took pity on you and gifted you one cracker of a bird dog, as well!
Keep making memories Sir. That's what it's all about.
