My longest hunting road trip yet. With exceptions of days I was injured, traveling, or grounded by bad weather, I hunted Dash on at least 17 days in September. Texas for Dove, south Colorado for Blue Grouse, north Colorado for Sage Grouse and Mountain Sharptail, then Kansas Prairie Chickens and Dove.

My walkabout started with Dove hunting in Young county. The first day of hunting I was the only one on my Deer lease and I would have to say it was the best opening weekend I have ever had there. It was like the Dove did not care if they were being shot at. At times I had dove landing around Dash while he was on a retrieve. They would land by him and he would break off the retrieve to point them. I thought Dash was going to retrieve a live Dove sometimes instead of the shot one.



Dash may have been a bit rebellious when he finished his HRC SHR title last year, but he retrieved all my dove perfectly on this hunt.



A lot of guys like to build Dove trees, I like to just drag a real one into the field.



I was taking several pictures looking for one I liked. This one caught Dash
looking at the Dove flying over.



Then he had enough of the camera.



And I don't know what to think about this picture. Beware the Dash Rip Rock tongue. He will get you when you least expect it.



We hunted Dove for a few days between doing work around the lease. The hunting was good every day though it did slack off a little from each day before. Some more Dove hunting pictures to share.







When I set up the camera with a timer, I often end up keeping the picture I did not intend to take. Not sure if this one was before the timer finished or if I thought it had already taken the photo.

Clearing some brush near my camper on the lease I found this cool spider. My wife actually likes garden spiders. This one now lives in our garden at home at her request.



I was going to leave for Colorado from Graham TX, but unfortunately I ran a small mesquite limb through my hand by accident and had to return home for a day when the swelling got bad. But there was more hunting to do first. It did effect my shooting, so I just shot more. My good friend Steve joined me for my last couple of days of hunting at the lease.



Before leaving Young County, Dash told me this waterhole had fish to be caught.



He was right. Most were caught on YoYos after I put the poles up, but this one was caught on a small crankbait.



After fixing up my hand, I headed for Colorado. Part 2 continued on this page: http://www.texashuntingforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/5379962
