Catching Up

The season is just screaming along and has left very little time for keeping up with the blog.  Have hunted at least part of everyday so far with the exception of yesterday when I was driving back from New Brunswick.  To date we have moved 82 grouse and 153 woodcock.  Some of the highlights have been with the puppies in New Brunswick where on Monday morning they all got into a bunch of birds and pointed many of them giving us the opportunity to kill birds for them.  Bob Little did a great job of getting all the dogs into birds Glo has the puppy find of the season when she pointed a pair of grouse in the 100 Bird Cover and Joe Faux of Woodcock Limited knocked them both down for his first true grouse double.  Earlier in the day he had shot a woodcock with his first shot of the season.  

Today was also fun as I took Dan Roberts and his 9 year old son DJ out for the morning.  We flushed 14 woodcock in front of Jack in about an hour and a half.  DJ got a little frustrated with his inability to knock one down but did manage to get a grouse that hopped up on a limb in front of Trip during the second run.  

NEWS FLASH from New Brunswick -- Timmy just called from New Brunswick with news that Wild Apple Calvados was runner-up in the Miss Leslie Derby Classic and Wild Apple Moon Glow and Wild Apple Samantha placed third and fourth in the Cronk Farm Puppy Classic.  A good day for Timmy and our Wild Apple puppies.  Wild Apple Jack also placed in the Miss Leslie when he was a puppy -- I take that as a good omen for his niece.

Joe shot his first ever double on grouse Sunday morning over Wild Apple Moon Glow.  Not bad for a puppy.
