Jan 4th and T-shirt weather in Nebraska. This is my older Springer Lucy and I with her first pointed rooster. She is a great flushing dog but four years ago she started occasionally pointing tight holding birds, usually hens. This was the first rooster that held for a point and we put it in the bag.

LEFEVER I-Grade Pheasant Hunt

Illinois requires non-toxic shot for some of their "public" pheasant hunts. Photo below is from a recent Carlyle Lake pheasant hunt. I handload 1 ounce of #5 NICE shot with a spreader wad, since the Lefever's 30" steel barrels are still original full choke; and most of the shots are over points within 30 yards.

This Lefever went through a full restoration by Buck Hamlin a few years ago. With semi-fancy new wood it is probably nicer that when it originally left the factory. Works fine.

I had one of the strangest experiences yesterday in the woodcock woods. I got an alert from Abby's gps collar that she was on point 125 yards out. As I started hightailing it towards her location, I heard Willa's bell to my left running with another dog, whose or where it came from I didn't know. I closed in on Abby on point and should have seen her standing there. All I saw at 25 feet was her blue collar, the gps unit and her bell on the ground. I thought that dog running with Willa looked familiar. Sometimes you just get lucky.

Today I went with Jeff, Floyd, Pop and Sadie. We downed 6 but only recovered 5. Floyd's gun was AWOL from photo but not from the action. It was a beautiful day in the woods. Gil

Gil,
That thick cover sure looks familiar, like we have up here. Glad you had a good day, and that your dog is safe.

Thanks, Karl. Lowpoint of today was Pop rolling in a greasy, decomposing wild hog carcass. We tried washing her down with muddy, water, but he still stunk to high heavens. Gil

Gil,
Bad yes, but I'll bet it beats a dog getting into a skunk!

Just think, Gil. If it had been Abby or Willa you woulda had to smell her all the way home! At least Pop rides in the back of the pickup.

I have literally tied a dog crate to the roof rack to get a skunked dog home. The stench, the horror.
