How was the weather up there at this time of year?
"Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing." --Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791
I agree with Choctaw, there's nothing like a Ringneck cock being flushed right in front of you! Skip a heartbeat! I always wanted to go to S. Dakota and go on a guided hunt with a guide and a beautiful gun dog [dreaming of a chocolate Springer]. I used to hunt them on family farm with an old Browning 12 - talk about growing up spoiled.
Nice job, and thanks so much for sharing pics!
