Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

The Bobs are back. Those magnificent red setters point the first covey in 5 minutes and went on to point 4 more in the next 30 minutes. We continued on until the dogs got hot and picked them up

I brought along my flusher-retriever. She got excited before we left the house when se say me putting on my boots.

E T brought me a great book that I didn't even know existed. There are bird hunting stories that go back to the 1920. Gene Hill is a contributor.

I just found Biscuit Eater in the book. It was published for a general audience in 1939 in the Saturday Evening post.

Sounds like a successful outing. Getting on birds seems to be more and more of a rare occurrence. Glad you have a good spot.

Thanks for sharing Bill!

I suppose this was down in the Gulf plains?

I stumbled onto that book about this time last year, there are some great stories in it!

I love the way Gene Hill paints the picture with his words...amazing.

Nice, Bill. Please give my regards to Elliot. By the way, we're still using the callback pen built from your plans, although we had to upright it after the last hurricane, and rebuild the fence around it.

Never seen this book before but ordered it. With a weak quail crop, I guess reading about the glory days is best you can do .

On the mask/COVID thing, I have asked everyone going on the annual Kansas pheasant trip I organize to get a COVID test before they arrive. I am over at my elderly moms house once a week, buried a 67 year old aunt that succumbed to it last month, one of the hunters kids has a compromised immune system, one of the folks that was going to attend had his wife contract it last week so he is out, it didn't miraculously disappear after the election, and the virus is flat out raging right now and is going to get worse the two weeks after Thanksgiving get togethers. It's a buzz kill, but it took 30 minutes of time and $50 to be smart about it and respectful to your friends (even if you personally don't believe its real or its the same as the common flu).

I will also share that of the four people that have contracted it at my place of work, two of them still have chronic fatigue issues 4+ months after the fact and they are both on their second or third specialist looking for answers to get their old self back. I am good health, but that gift that keeps on giving deal worries the snot out of me.

It is just my own two cents, but my neighbor two doors down is the head of emergency department for the fourth largest hospital in the metroplex, and my opinions are formed from a lot of what he has shared about how this deal is bad news in the way that it seems like you have allergies but in the background millions of tiny blood clots are forming that break apart and land in the lungs, and all of the sudden you go from scratchy throat to flat on your back in ICU bed in a matter of hours. Never posted about COVID anywhere before, no agenda, am not an alarmist in general...just sharing my personal experiences with my fellow upland bird hunters.

Very good policy and advice. Just hope I get to go later on because right now at age 70 with a wife who certainly does not need to get sick, I'm going to have to avoid people who don't respect the health of other's.
