Eager anticipation or desperation?

Pointing squirrels...

He just took to this in the last week or so, having been oblivious to the yard full of tree rats all summer.  I don't have the heart to tell him that his debut is still three months away.  If it's cold up north and the woodcock get here early his sniffer may get a workout before then, sans gun of course. 

The bird hunting blogs have been rather dormant since the start of summer, save the occasional fishing or vacation post.  Signs of life in the the last few weeks augur a spreading fever.  Here's hoping for an epidemic.


  1. Just found your blog and look forward to following as bird season nears. I live in South Georgia and long for upland bird hunting. We shoot our share of bobwhites down here but there is just something about true upland hunting that calls my soul!! Look forward to the season!

  2. Hey Trey, thanks for stopping in. I'll admit to a bit of envy since it's no secret that South GA has the best bobwhite hunting this side of Texas. Hope you'll check back on a regular basis...
