We found NINE pheasants this morning. Bagged 5 of them.
One ran across the mowed strip into the woods, so we kept trying to send Tito into the woods after it but he kept going back to the field where the bird had come from. He was having nothing to do with heading into the woods, which is pretty surprising. Sure enough, a few seconds later he flushed a second bird from the field! Obviously a bird in the field is worth 2 in the woods, lol.
The best part was a cripple that went down in a tree. Fell a bit, then roosted about 5 feet off the ground.
The old man still "has it". When he got to the tree, it took him a minute to realize the bird was off the ground. After hunting around a bit, he found it in the tree and got up on his back legs, gave a bounce, and grabbed the bird.
Where's the video camera when you need it??
My heart sings when I see how much he loves his birds.
