The frost was still on the pumpkin when we started. Yeats went left and cracker took a wrong turn. A single got up in front of Yeats and hit the ground with one shot. We started hunting dead with the guns down and the remainder of the covey got up. That happened more than once yesterday. Here's Yeats;




We looked around and found Cracker pointing another covey. The covey flushed while she was still on point. Here's Cracker;



Cracker went on to point 3 more coveys before I picked her up. ET wanted to go left but Beckett went right and pointed. HE kept that up for 3 more coveys. Here's one of them with Mark shooting. He even pointed a snipe which led Scott and his brother Mark on a little snipe hunt, until ET told us the season was out.



That was 9 coveys in the south pasture. Yeats took over after that. I got hungry and ET was to the rescue. He brought 6 dozen oysters, shrimp, salad, pecan pie and I don't know what all. You can see for yourself;




The gunners were Mark and Scott. Here you go. The cowboy in the middle is ET1;

What a way to end the season. We old guys aren't supposed to eat oysters any more, at least that's what they say. Who gives a rats booty what they say any way banana

The Quail Coalition burned and disked several areas of that ranch Saturday. We pointed 2 coveys in the burned area.

But when you're over 60 they are supposed to attack your immune system, of course Bill is only 29 so I don't know why I brought it up wink

I've only seen two snipe pointed in all my hunting years. Beckett usually never flags and at times takes him awhile to tighten up. He didn't get all the way tight when the snipe flushed. Mark and Scott were really good shooters. It's a shame season was out.

The dogs were having a little problem with some of their locations yesterday, or maybe we were having a little trouble reading them. Beckett pointed into a bush on our last covey. Mark stepped up and the covey flushed just to the right of his boots. He acted like a child seeing his first ever flush. All of those birds will live to nest next spring. ET say two small birds. That's happened to me a couple of times over the years. I never know if it's an early hatch for this year, or a late hatch from last year. What's your guess on this?

Last time I saw Beckett the pup couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 months old.
Looks like a good time, and excellent food.
