A batch of quail with a little dry rub, a smoky oak bed of coals then topped with a spicy bbq sauce. Simple but dang good. Planned on taking half home, that was a funny plan. Can’t wait until next quail season!!

Dolly Parton had a great day and definitely has a nose to write home about. A perfect retrieve on a scaup (which I have never seen in Az), and, 4 dove and 4 quail locate/retrieves in waist high grass. I would have been lucky to find any of those birds without her! Watching her do her thing is an amazing sight……

I haven’t hunted Sandhill Cranes since I went with my dad 22 years ago. They are an amazing bird with a big learning curve on how to hunt. Got 2 today and will head out tomorrow to try and fill the 3rd tag. Shot a 10 gauge for the first time too, wow man!!

A good hide and a little luck had a flock of 8 Canada’s in our laps. My brother and I each took half the meat, I was able to get two dinners and a lunch out of my share, not bad!!

Had to rethink and abort our quail hunt this morning. Reasoning…….
1. Grass was really high and we found two of these guys slithering about.
2. The wind was howling, making it hard to see, and hear any snakes and,
3. The quail were still paired up with lots of babies.

So, we found shade and made coffee of course, with plans of returning in a month with bigger quail to chase!

Kicking off hunting season with Trevor. Not so many dove that we weren’t able to have a good talk, not so few that I wouldn’t go back. A good breeze to keep the mosquito’s at bay, no rattlesnakes and a good lightning storm over the mountain. Treasures for the soul.

Journal entry 3.
This bear walked right across the spring, straight to my trail cam, and proceeded to try and tear it off the tree, leaving it dangling in the wind. Kind of the same feeling I get when I run across a trail cam out in the woods!
