    Well, weather and snow conditions have been less than ideal, but we have been trying. Seems like ptarmigan numbers are low, but we have managed to find a few and get skunked a few...thats hunting.

    Now that's a pair of partners to draw too. Nice. The one needs a bit of a shave. Love the ice and snow on the face. What is that you were using to take the birds?
    Looks like the 3 of you had a great day out.

    Hahaha...I've seen those dogs running around when I was hunting near summit lake.
    Good job, that's a happy pack!

    River Rat, it is a Browning Citori 16 gauge in the pictures...
    Actually these were three different hunts....

    Ember's beard can be a mess at times. On the cold days when she rides in the cab of the truck after a hunt, she stands in the front seat with her chin on the dash and it melts into a big puddle of water.

    Burke,
    As always Beautiful Pics!! I have had some hard times dealing with the snow this year too. We seem to always find birds when the snow is set-up enough that we can move around. It's tough when you sink to your knees with snow shoes on and the dogs can't get around. I keep forgetting to take the camera or I'm too tired to think about taking pics at the end of the day.
    Thanks for posting!

    Great thread, the bird hides the smile on the dog. Do they do okay in the deep stuff?

    The dogs obviously struggle as snow gets deeper but both my girls are willing to go regardless. I usually have to make the call to quit before they drop....or should I say before I drop. Yesterday Ember fell asleep sitting up in the front seat of the truck after a hunt. That was unusual for her, she was pooped!
    I also try to be careful because I have seen or known several dogs who blow out there knees in deep snow.
