Late Season Roosters

Who said Eastern Colorado doesn't have a decent (huntable) population of pheasants.
This past January I had some great days afield chasing some late season birds. Yes, I had to drive about 6 hours round trip but hey I haven't seen too many wild roosters hanging around in Denver! Several weekend day trips produce birds and many more flushed.





If you look closely you will see about 6 birds in flight.


















Success!




4 shots 4 birds!

In total I made three trips to Eastern Colorado to chase those willy ditch chickens. Those three days were some of the best hunting I experienced in this state. It wasn't about bags limits or who made the best shot. It was about great dog work and even better friendships.
