Small Fin and Feather TR

Post by Overcast » Wed Nov 10, 2010 3:20 pm

Although I have been out of touch for quite sometime, just checking in with a short report. Departed S.E. Alaska with more than luggage. The wife handed me papers for dissolution (WTF) and a short trip to the airport. So in the near future, some of you may take offense to what few replies I may, or may not make. I'm in shock,disappointment and anger phase (ha) but found that hiding behind my current situation is not working. Feel no sorrow for me, I'll take what I can, and find a new path.

The snow elevation was dropping fast and summer is over, time to travel and find some.

Been wanting to do some upland bird hunting for years and accepted an invitation by two good friends to kill some.
Traveled to the Dakota's and spent a full week waking to smell of dogs, stale lunch meat and mild hangovers.

I take pity on the fez, with this dogs ability to find live, crippled or dead birds. Her tail would go into a helicopter spin and you better be on her tail because she's not waiting.

This is how it works............. We find the birds because.......well, that's what we do.

Weather changed dramatically from highs in the 60's, to low 20's, with an Alberta Clipper pushing cold air and snirt (aka) snow and dirt mixed with winds in excess of 60 mph.

I have no idea where these tracks go, but just like life we really never know. I'm certain there will be bumps
in the road, nasty turns and unexpected delays, with no explanation but what the fuck. I'm on the train and it does no good to look back.

The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian.

That's a Wirehared Griffon, not a German Wired Haired Pointer.

Get it right or pay the price.

Nice looking trip.

I wish that they would stock the wetlands with pheasants and quail so we could hunt something real here :cool
