Al and I got out to North Dakota for a late season hunt. The weather cut it short but we still managed to take a few roosters and some Huns as well. Here are some pix of that trip...

Saw a few deer bunched up during this trip.

We saw one huge buck on an old farmstead but no pic of him. Here is a rub that Wiley was checking out...

Got some nice, big roosters on this trip...

Last day picture...

Then the following week, after another snow in SW Minnesota I decided to take Wiley out for a day of chasing late season roosters. The wind was raw and the birds were flying hard. I'm sure we saw over 100 birds in the air but most were flushing out of range. We kept with it and Wiley got a few roosters that were holding tight. here are some more pix from that day...

Wiley with a longtail that measured 24.5". Bird was flapping the whole way and he finally had enough and set him down for me...

He can be such a ham. Guess he's proud of that longtail!!

Looks like a good time, I love the pictures. I took my dog out the other day and wore her out all she wanted to do for two days after was lay around.

Looks like it was a great trip!

Pheasant season just came to an end in Wisconsin on December 31. Of course, we now have 3 roosters and a few hens in the yard daily.

You really have a knack with the ringnecks and Mr. Wiley seems to be a big part of it. :) It's nice to see the big, healthy wild birds as opposed to the scrawny little Roadrunners that the pheasant clubs stock and release.

Yes, it's been a blessed year for roosters here but this winter may be taking it's toll on them. No reports yet but the winter started early and it will depend on what we get for cold and ice storms.
