Got all the gear loaded and the mule stowed on the trailer, ready to go in the morning. Still not sure I'll put a dog down but may drive the roads and hope for a covey I can check cord a pup into. I'm guessing dusty and green so wont be expecting much from scenting conditions and still a little jumpy about snakes. I'm a wait till a good killing frost kind of a guy and that may be what we have this weekend. Good luck.

A frost in the morning is good enough for me!

More willpower than me if you run up a covey and don't deploy paws on the ground. If I would have known it was going to be 33 degrees to start out at my lease on the opening morn, I wouldnt be in the metromess today for sure

I was packed and ready to roll until my son was kind enough to share his stomach bug with me. Needless to say, I'm not gonna make it and the dog is less than thrilled.

I put my 9 yo Britt on the ground this morning. I walked with her through some short to medium shinnery. I bumped one covey, dog finally made it around to scent cone on were they got up from and pointed. That was the only covey in an hour of running the dog.

Hunted different pasture this afternoon. 1 covey pointed, dog on the ground for about an hour. Did more riding than walking.

Four coveys this morning... the first within 50 yards of the truck, within minutes of sunrise. That gets your blood pumping a dogs working

The afternoon was ugly. One lone bird.
