This Nov I was able to send some amazing time chasing birds with my family and our dogs. Here are some pictures from a 3 week stretch that had us chasing in South Dakota, Idaho and Utah. I didn't type a bunch on this post I'll just let the pics speak for themselves.
First trip was 4 days in South Dakota with Bad River Bucks and Birds. This was chasing wild birds in some very tough conditions. Temps in the 80s were rough on the dogs and winds up to 20 mph were rough on the shooters! That being said, it was a bucket list hunt that was a 10 out of 10 for me and more birds and shooting than I even imagined.
After an amazing trip to SD I was able to sneak up to Idaho to hunt with a friend.
After chasing wild birds for a couple weeks we decided to take a trip down to Castle Valley Club in Utah. I had heard very good things about this club and they did not disappoint. Strong flying birds that loved to run.
The more time I spend following my dogs through good habitat the more I shift to this side of my hunting passion. Family, well trained dogs, abundant birds and pretty shotguns are things that make me happy.
