Spring break saw some fine weather and settled snow conditions. Dogs had to work hard but could get out and about. I found my self in up to my waist a few times...once to my armpits even with snow shoes. I saw where there were a few avalanche/slides had occurred and avoided those steeper slopes, but the dogs were able to get some great exercise, multiple points each and I was able to get a few birds in the bag.
It took us a few days to find where they were hanging out but we eventually found some birds. I even had a bonus...I found a group of whitetail ptarmigan! I might have to take a couple to Ed Forstner to mount for me.
We should have gone out again today, but all three of us were pooped after several days humping around.
The dogs and I have not been out much this winter due to snow conditions and some of the cold temperatures. We hope to take advantage of the last few weekends of the season.
