Lets here some good dog stories as well.
Can we attach pictures in this forum now?
Saturday: 8-11:30 and went for 2 hrs in the afternoon. A lot of flushes, seen and unseen.
Sunday: got a late start and went for less than an hour. we had 4 flushes with a total of 6 birds flushed.
I am impressed with the chick survival and I am not seeing low numbers. One spot that I hunted last year had 4 birds flushed and I gave up on that spot for the year. This year, I had a lot more there. I was worried, but it looks like a good year to me. I only was able to hit 2 locations as my younger dog, a pup of my older female, is in training on a hunting trip from Montana, North Dakota, and the last stop in Canada. Hoping to get her back in 2 weeks. My older dog, an all star, is 9. And between her and myself, the heat made things tough for a two day trip, but we had a blast.

Fall color is at approximately 15% in Price County. Historically, peak color occurs during the first week of October. Following peak the leaves begin to fall rapidly with a hard frost and when the wind shakes the leaves from the trees.
Good luck hunting!
