We were the lucky ones to get chosen to come run our dogs for a great bunch of guys at The Shin Oak Ranch in West Texas. Let me just say, What a ranch! Beautiful lodge, great guys, great cover and lots of birds! Me & my buddy didn't shoot, just ran the dogs and we had a blast! We hunted just a few hours on Friday afternoon and found eleven coveys, hunted a few hours in the morning and only a couple of hours Saturday evening and I think we found 13 or 14 coveys (was 82-83 degrees Saturday!) Then just hunted a couple hours Sunday morning and found four coveys I believe. (they were running big time and flushing wild Sunday)
We saw more deer than you could even imagine, a Crapload of Turkeys & hogs and rolled up on a buck fight Saturday morning that was the most brutal buck fight I have seen. The big one of the two, was a very big deer.
I think with the extreme conditions that we had, the dogs did pretty darn good. This has been the kind of season dreams are made of, if it stayed just like it has been this year, I would be happy. Gary, I know you will read this so I want to say thanks for the invite and we look forward to running dogs for you next year. And tell Glen I can't find him on Facebook either.
More pics will be in a reply.
