>Idaho Mixed Bag and Bird Dog Blessings

>We just returned home from Southern Idaho…it was a wonderful trip! If enjoyment was measured by the weight of the game bag at the end of the day, this trip would have been only fair! This trip was much better than fair…infact, it was awesome! We had a great time visiting with family and life long friends. We ate great food. And, we even found birds! The dog work was fabulous…I’ll been dreaming of the ruffed grouse that THUNDERED out of the aspen choked draw on the Royal McNab with out offering me a shot for years and years to come! We returned home with worn out but healthy dogs! I’ll be counting the days until I get to return to the uplands of Southern Idaho to pursue birds with my dogs! Below are some photos of our Southern Idaho Upland Adventure!

Great tacos at the end of a long birdless day!
