Good Morning Huns & Sharptails

Updated: Sep 12, 2022

The terrain is deceiving. At first glance it appears to be completely flat, grazed down to nothing and unlivable for any living creature. But each step further from civilization reveals a rolling topography with bottoms full of brush and grasshoppers conveniently close to watering holes. I will be running a bunch of young dogs on this trip. For most of these dogs, this is their 1st hunting season and certainly their 1st trip to Montana. I have no preconceived notions about how many birds we will find much less shoot at. I am in pursuit of opportunity for all these young bird dogs to develop and learn. In a relatively short 3 hour hunt this morning we moved a pretty good sized covey of Hungarian Partridge, a group of 5 or 6 Sharptail Grouse and half a dozen Sharptail singles scattered throughout the landscape. Maggie, Penny, Deuce and Cash all certainly had plenty of opportunity and I was pleased with their performance.
