This is what I wrote to ET about Beckett this morning. I think he's still a derby.
"There is not a pointing dog man in the whole wide world who would not have
been proud of Beckett's last covey find, especially given the circumstances.
We pushed across the bottom, not knowing where the dogs were, picked up
Yeats, made a lot of noise, located Beckett on the Garmin. located his tail
by sight, and watched him grow 10 feet taller as we approached, then ended
with a perfect covey rise. That's what I call greatness. It doesn't happen
everyday. Some people never see it in a lifetime.
Thanks for the invite. bill"
