Luna goes pheasant hunting

Luna's first pheasant hunt. We went to a hunting preserve for some training and to have some fun. Luna thought it was a grand old time. A few pheasants she was totally oblivious to and I kicked up. One she practically stepped on, and two she totally smelled and flushed. It was totally exciting for me and her.
She didn't retrieve very well, but got the general idea when I went to get the pheasant for her and put it in her mouth. Then we had to try a few times when I needed her to "leave it" for me.

It was a beautiful day in the field. Sunny, warm, beautiful country. Dogs, and guns, and birds. It was great.

Cooked up a great pheasant paprika dish. Diced bacon, diced pheasant, stock, cream, sour cream, carmalized onions, and lots of paprika. Served over egg noodles.

Life is grand. It doesn't get any better than this.


  1. Sounds like you guys had fun! Luna is getting so big. They grow up so fast!

  2. She's so big compared with just a little bit ago when you got her. She looks like she had a good time!
