I got out Thurs., Fri., and Sat. to hunt some upland. I got huns everyday. I have been working with my dog really hard on upland this past summer and she is doing pretty good. I got her last year when she was almost 5. Up to that point she had only hunted waterfowl (100+ birds a year). She just loves to hunt and I'm really happy with the way she is working the birds. I guess that you can teach on old dog new tricks. She got her firs bird on opening day, 10 min. into the hunt
We are ging out to scout spots for the duck opener today. Should be alot of fun. We are hunting out of a real boat this year instead of the 1236 john boat that we had last year. Man I can't belive that we ever hunted in that little boat, looking back now I'm not sure that it was even safe to take on the water. I think that a canoe is more stable than that boat was.
If you get over this way to hunt let me know ahead of time and we can hook up for a hunt maybe. Where is there water near Butte that you can hunt? Mostly the rivers/streams or is there some public resevoirs around that you can hunt?
