    Hoyt,

    Paxson looks great! Tough to hunt when there are a lot of folks around. We were going to head up a trail Sat. and found a crowd there so instead bucked brush up another mountain. Saw several flocks flying around the top (3,000 ft) but diddn't get into any that we could connect with. Not sure how long the Denali is passable but maybe you'll get another chance.

    Thanks sameyer! We were about the same altitude (I always wear my watch with an altimeter), but I really think the number of caribou hunters were part of the problem. I'll get back down there a few more times this winter. I also hunt a little closer to home, to save on time and money as winter progresses. I'll get him on ptarmies soon enough! lol

    Yep, Paxson is indeed a nice looking dog. And that shotgun looks like a Model 37 perhaps? Each of us is very lucky to be who we are, and where we are. I feel so sorry for those who live in big cities all across the lower 48, and who don't know the power and the thrill of hunting over a fine dog in wilderness.

    I'm going out again tomorrow.

    Hoyt, one of these days we need to get together.

    Jim

    PS.Here's a shot of my youngest Brittany, Charlie, just the other day with a ruffed grouse.

    Great pic, beautiful dog. Thanks for the kind words! Paxson has been a dream so far. Although very green, he is progressing well! We are very lucky indeed. You couldn't be more right! By the way nice eye! Model 37 in 16 gauge circa 1957. Love that gun so much. I've looked at a few O/U, but decided to put my limited funds into a good dog (glad I did). I can't put the old Ithaca down anyway. My hunting partner TH carries the same gun in 12 gauge (1953). We call them our lunch pail guns! Not pretty, but gets the job done. lol Thanks again Jim, and I would love to get together some time! Take care.

    Thank you! Working the dog is about 90% of upland hunting to me!
