I decided to take a day off this week and look for some birds before the predicted storm rolled in. It was a nice day in the desert, and things look very promising for next year. It took a while but I did find some birds and managed to bag a couple.
Plus 1 Tom, Plus 1......... :2:popx5 said:The desert looks epic. I've been out several times this year chasing the beloved bird from hell. I've been finding them about every trip and getting some great dog work and points. Could of shot a limit a few weeks ago, but settled for one. I have been watching most fly away. I just wont kill em unless there is a covey of 20 or more. Shot a handful over the season but I'm really hopeful for this spring that we might get some good recruitment. Nice to see running creeks and seeps in the desert again. This is the best winter since 2010. Much more water on the way. Hope for the magical may shower to really finish it off.
Nice job on the birds.
