Chocolate Lab Dock Jump

I think Scud has a future in dock jumping if pheasant hunting doesn’t work out for him. 😉









Montana Pheasant Hunting – Opening Weekend 2013

Pheasant Hunting Eastern Montana

Pheasant Hunting Montana 2013

Well it was another beautiful pheasant opening weekend in Eastern Montana. The cool weather really helped the dogs track and not overheat. Just one bird short of our two-day limit wasn’t too bad.  Most of the birds we harvested were fairly mature. Most other hunters seemed to have quite a few younger birds in their possession and this could be contributed to the release of many farmed pheasants in the area. Here are a few pictures from over the weekend:

Scud’s first pheasant retrieve.


It’s that time of year again!

With the cold air coming I feel the urge to get out of the office and into the field! Looks like a lot of the pheasant chicks didn’t make it in the Conrad area. I think a few hail storms were the biggest culprit. Hopefully enough birds lived to make it a good pheasant season. I drew a cow elk permit this year. Super excited to fill up the freezer!

Happy hunting to you in your neck of the woods!

The old farm house

While driving up to Canada to get Scud we stopped by the farm to check on things.  It’s was nice and sunny and there quite a few birds (pheasants) from what I could see.  Here are a few photos I took on the way up to Canada, mostly around the farm and towards the Sweetgrass Hills.

New Pheasant Dog in the Family! – Scud

On January 2nd my uncle and I headed to the Great White North to pick up a new chocolate lab pup (born 11/15/2012).  He doesn’t know how good he’s got it, or maybe he does as he seems very smart. So please welcome Scud to the family! 🙂
