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:

Rocky Mountain Front Tree Planting – Valier, MT

Valier, MT Farm

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!

Canadian Bird Hunting Trip Fall 2008

Oly, Bob, Orvis - Saskatchewan Bird Hunting Trip 2008

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.
