Here’s to the ups and downs of the season.
The first day of a long weekend with a punctured paw. Cracked nails. Worn down pads.
Skunk sprays before work.
Washing of dogs at boat launches.
Shortened hunts to find that the area has been already been thoroughly hit.
Dogs left in the truck 1,000 miles from home so they can rest up whilst on the road.
Tripping and falling through slash of a young timber cut. Wet boots and sopping feet from cattail slews and creek crossing.
All for the the excitement of the dog, watching their development and pitfalls, the rush of a flushing bird, and if you’re anything like me a whole lot of pellets finding there way into nothing but the cold hard ground.
