More Birds, More Shot

Zahra spent a couple hours at the hunting club this morning. The goal now is to build her experience while we still have tolerable weather.

It was a beautiful day with temperatures in the mid-40s. The club put out (and marked) two chukars and the breeze was just right to give Zahra a nice big scent cone to pick up.  She did a bit more creeping and a little less pouncing today, which was good.

I shot over Zahra again and she didn’t seem to care at all. In fact, reports heard from a distant area perked up her attention — she looked as if she might see birds that way.

We also happened upon a rooster pheasant on our way into our field. He flushed and I noted where he came down. On the way back out, we headed in that direction. I caught a glimpse of him running as we neared, but Zahra wasn’t able to catch his scent.

Here’s another one, spotted a half mile away along a roadside. The smarter pheasants are fattening up!
