Part four and the last page the hunting road trip with my Vizsla Dash Rip Rock. The entire photo essay from TX to CO, now KS starts here. http://www.texashuntingforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/5379960 It's a long one so I broke it up into separate pages.

Hunting in Kansas was hot, so hunting times were short. Walking back along a creek to keep Dash cool, we walked into these two patches of plants that held all kinds of Dove just flying around like they were hopped up on goofballs. It was easy pickins. Then I noticed a skunk smell and thought it best to get out of there.











I love hunting Kansas. You just never know what your going to see or run across.

You ever been Largemouth Bass fishing where your not catching many fish and schools of Sandbass keep rising in the lake nearby tempting you. What do you do, you go catch a limit of Sandbass. At least I do. This is what happened with my Prairie Grouse hunting. I have never seen so many Dove in my life. Every tree was full of them. Every field with grain had birds coming and going sometimes in waves. So what did I do. Shoot limits of dove everyday during my time in Kansas. It was fun.







After 17 days of hunting and travel time, Dash was tired and out like a light the entire drive home.



I unfortunately had to shave my beard when I got home and Dash then was lent out to a friend to hunt in Montana for over two weeks where Dash was hunting with his Mother, Sister, and Uncle Abe. You will notice Dash is not in this picture. They said when they let the dogs out for the picture, Dash ran off hunting as usual.



Dash is home now, but pretty bored after all that. I will have him out hunting again soon. One last picture of Dash showing off his teardrop tattoo.

Sniper John,
No words are good enuf to reply to your story, except to say well done my friend. I thoroughly enjoyed your hunting trip photos and narrative. Better than any hunting magazine article I've every read. Whatever THF is paying you is not enough. smile
Thank you,
Dodge

p.s. Dash is one hellofva dog. Your personal best image of him on pt with the rainbow is beautiful.

It certainly is a lot different trip than what I do. I don't see many hunters that put in all that time driving and scouting , finally put it together and figure it out Then move on to another place next morning

Very nice versatile hunter in dash

Awesome write up and pics. I'm heading up to Kansas in a couple weeks. You should have bagged up some of that stinky weed to help pay for your fuel cost. happy3

That was quite the write up. I stumbled upon 2, then had to go back for the rest. What a trip.

Great stuff. The skunk smell may have been those plants. That looks like pot to me. You may have hunted through someone's personal stash. eeks333
