Mike,
We get some really beautiful golden sunshine in the afternoons at this time of year. It warms up the colors against that snow.

We had fun today. 13 kilometers and two birds. That's probably about average or a little better this year. We work for them.

Good on you. That which is easily gained is lightly esteemed. Hard won and highly prized.

Mike, great looking dog.
Floyd, Jeff, Billy and I split into two groups today.á Floyd and Jeff hunted with Pop and Sadie; Billy joined the MuttPak, Willa and Abby, and I.á We drew for areas.á It didn't make any difference.á The birds were everywhere and we finished by 10 a.m.á After limiting, the dogs kept on finding birds on our way back.á We honored the points with a good-bye salute.áHere's Abby backing Willa on a doodle on our way out.á We hunted a Brier Free Zone today and it was a great way for all to start the new year with perfect temps and plenty of birds.á We had an early lunch in the woods.á I browned 3 lbs. of venisonáburger and made a soup containing tomatoes, okra, collard greens, black-eyed peas and red peas served with cornbread.á The soup base was the collard's pot liquor and the peas' broth.á The collards and peas satisfied the Southern New Year's Day Tradition.(Superstition??)á From top to bottom: Billy's 1953 20 ga. Superposed, the predecessor grade to the Diana. Inherited from his father who in turn inherited it from his father. My Ithaca SKB 100 20 ga., Jeff's 20 ga. Uggie, Floyd's Ithaca SKB 100 20 ga. Happy New Year.á Gil

Gil,
Looks like a perfect way to bring in the new year, well done! Our season ends today up here, another year to wait.
Happy New year,
Karl

Superstition nothing! Try a new year without peas for good luck and greens for money in the coming year. 100% chance you'd be poorer next December...Geo

Geo, if you look at the middle bird in the top row you'll see proof of good luck. Billy was expecting a woodcock and was so startled to see 15 birds get up in a space the size of a basketball five feet off of Willa's nose in low open grass, I don't think he shot. He ate peas afterwards. I had a taste this morning when I heated the soup up before putting it in the Thermos bottles. Gil

Maybe not my favorite pictures but today was a tough day to be a bird hunter. At least for me. Going to take some time to figure this one out.

Brent,
I'm assuming that was a result of a fall, something we all risk chasing birds. Sorry you had it happen. Could you give us details?
