First Time Pheasant Hunter

My brother-in-law Pete and I took his son Ben out for his first pheasant hunting experience. We had a blast taking Ben out and hunted hard to put a few birds in the bag for him. For an 8 year old he certainly kept up with his dad and uncle. I was proud of him and I'm sure his dad is still smiling!


The day started out slow with the birds being a little sensitive and flushing wild. After the winds picked up the roosters finally started holding and flushing within range. Mia put the work load of the day on her back. For the most part she hunted great, only a few times did she range out there. She worked hard to find birds for Ben.
A few pictures form the day...


Til next time....

Days like that are hard to beat. Im putting some pressure on my boys this year to actually hit a grouse.
