Pheasant hunting with Luna

Luna had a great day pheasant hunting and so did we! She is tired and sore and so are we! She was great. She totally "got" it this time. She locked onto birds, pointed, and flushed. After we shot she retrieved. The only thing that she didn't do perfectly was give us the birds. She seemed to think they were hers.

She flushed eight birds and we shot six. I winged a seventh and she had a hold of it a couple of times but wasn't able to bring it back. I hit every bird I shot at.

It was a beautiful day. Sunny and warm. Luna got so tired by the end that she was tripping over her own gangly feet. We knew there were a few more birds, but decided to call it a day. We didn't want her to overdo it. She was so excited. We had a blast.

We'll see if we can afford the time and money to go one more time this season. Turkey season starts in a week though and the gardening is continuing at breakneck speed.

All is well, in this the best of all possible worlds.

  1. I just love reading your blog! Luna is growing up so beautifully! You must have a much bigger freezer than we do to have so many tomatoes left over for canning this time of year. :) I usually just put a few gallon ziplocks of tomatoes in mine in fall. The rest have been eaten or dried or canned by then. You are so right though--they are not at all the same as store bought. so much better!
