The day after Christmas, David Weingold, my son, and I went bird hunting. I am not much of a hunter. I don’t shoot anything I will not eat. But David likes to eat the quail and pheasant. I go along just to take pictures and watch the dog work.
We get up early and drive to Ozark Acres in Southern Missouri. It is about a 2-hour drive, and we get there when they open at 8:00. They put out eight pheasants and eight chuckers. We hunt till about noon and then drive home. I was able to collect a lot of chucker feathers and pheasant rump feathers for fly tying.
David’s dog Sandy was amazing. She found all the pheasant and almost all of the chucker. Here is a picture of her on point.
I liked this picture so much; I just had to share it.
