Hunt & Doggish News

Not a dove on the plateau here--- though major elk season is started. But Daniel Riviera is coming down through Montana after training in ND...

And though it is still hot in Alpaugh, it is almost time to run. John Burchard still has a couple of Russo- Arabian pups to go-- nice examples of the breeding theories below, with Kazakh Semirichenia and COO Arab hounds genes wedded in their ancestry.

The pups are so big now! I am not showing them to Brett, he will want a brindle one :)

Finally, a place to make a comment, have a question for you about double guns.

Opening day just saw local birds coming to water but a few days into the season and we have migrant birds testing us. Already one dove in wine sauce dinner under out belt, hopefully will get a few more birds before the season ends on Saturday.

My English Cocker has finally decided she is a retriever also, has been finding some tough birds in the brush and bringing them to hand. I guess I just needed to shoot enough birds for her to get the idea.

Nice pictures. Birds here next week, moose a couple weeks later. Best of all though is the freedom to chase them! Dogs and I are getting eager

The first part of dove season closed yesterday. Not a lot of birds in the area but enough to get some good dog work in and some really hard retrieves in tough cover. Quail open in a month in SoCal. I'll be glad when cooler weather hits, I think Rosie will like it better also. How do I attach pictures?
