early morning pheasant hunt

i just walk along.....to enjoy watching the DOG!  don says, "DODGER - you're the hunter....I'm the shooter".  i don't think dodge has made the connection yet with WHY we're out there in the field yet.  we NEED to take him to a place where we FOR SURE GET/FIND birds (even if we have to pay for them).  he LOVES the gun - very responsive to that...but no linear thought of ....BIRD - BANG - FIND - BRING.

oh - he's brought us a bird (his first grouse was last year)...but - i think he flushed it by mistake.  his M.O. seems to be run around and stomp on something.  he instinctively runs left and right in front of us....but he may be smelling mice and rabbits for all we know....for all he knows....

here's a shot of some LONE OAKS....  have you noticed that a lot of oak groves are dying?  their tap root is SO DEEP....and the water tables are changing....the deep water - disappearing....
