It has begun! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas, HUNTING season. You have yours and I have mine. The joy of hunting, the high paced flushing and retrieving of birds. I’m on my game and ready for the season! I had a little practice with this leaf. It just flew out of the tree and dangled on the fence, a little disappointing it wasn’t a bird! Seriously, steady and still, watch me hold that pose!
As I sit in my backyard, I hear all the shooting going on at the K-R Ranch which is across the road. Yes, it is one of my most favorite places. It can be a little frustrating knowing all that activity over there doesn’t include me, though.
Finally, this past Saturday my best friend took me to the ranch, and we brought along one of his friends, Mr. Lou. We had such an amazing time our first day out. I was swift, and I flushed so many birds over the 2 hours there. I even jumped the gun, and I mean that literally, and grabbed a couple of birds out of excitement before they could take flight. Sorry, I’ll try to curb my enthusiasm! It was a little tiring and I did take a brief rest, but you couldn’t stop me from soldiering on!
I’m told Mr.Lou had a great time too, and can’t wait until our next trip! This may even become a regular outing I hear on Fridays! This is my Field of Dreams come true!
It was a long day, an awesome day, but now on to my much deserved nap in the sun. I bet Diesel wishes he could join us. See you next week Mr. Lou!
