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:
This past April we planted about 500 Russian Olive trees. It was a grueling 2 days of work! Lots of sun, trees, digging & watering. Hopefully the trees will root well and make it. Give it 10+ years and the pheasants should have some great additional habitat.
Big thanks to Krist & Ron for helping us!
My father-in-law and I went hunting at the Rooster Ridge Pheasant Club with Duke & Scout the other weekend. Duke is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and Scout is his and Tish’s (German Wirehair) puppy. Scout is turning out to be one heck of a retriever, especially for only being 14 weeks old!
Second weekend over at the farm. My father-in-law, George Bingham, came along with his dog Duke.
Here are a few pheasant hunting pictures taken over at our farm in Valier, MT on opening day.
My Uncle Bob and I made a trip up to our property near Usherville, Saskatchewan. While we were up there we did quite a bit of goose and duck hunting but also managed to get in some grouse hunting. I also jumped in and helped (with moral support) the local butcher who just harvested a moose. Taking a break from hunting we went on a trip to Armit Lake, Manitoba with our friend Blair Mitchell to do some fishing. Here are a few photos from our trip.
