Last Dance

Yesterday ended our 2008/09 upland bird hunting season. As they say all things must come to an end but before the music was over we saw a new hunter take his first bird. My brother-in-law's brother Joe took his first pheasant. While the high winds put a twist on the day they didn't dampen our spirits. We saw as many birds as during this hunt as any other hunt this year. But the winds kept a few birds out of the bag. And I won't sugar coat it, our shooting didn't help! It was great hunt that ended a great year in the uplands. I'll report later on my reflections of the past season but for now I have one more day in the duck blind.

A few pictures....

Matt...

What a great season! Why end it now? Why not head to NM or AZ and chase some quail? Texas has quail until the end of Feb! Turkey season is just around the corner too! I'm gonna try again this year with my long bow...Karen thinks I should just buy a dang turkey from the store!

Then there's fly fishing to get us in between the crazies!

Next year man...next year!
