>Colorado Blues & other Blogger Happenings

>What’s better than opening day in the Colorado Rockies with bird dogs in tote? Not much! 70 degrees and blue bird skies with a slight cool September breeze was the perfect weather to kick off the grouse season. The morning started with my alarm going off at 2 am. A whorl-wind commute through the mountains to grouse country at a mere 10,390 feet. Miles and boot-leather along with awesome dog work aided in finding several coveys of blue grouse in God’s country not far from the ol’ Grand River. I was very pleased with my bird dogs. Grouse were pointed and retrieved like seasoned veterans. I plan to spend as much time as possible in blue grouse country…hopefully I won’t lose my job…but, I sure could chase a lot of birds being unemployed!

This season I’m demo’n DT System’s SPT 2432 training/locator collars . So far, I am very pleased with DT System’s professionalism and their support staff is second to none! I’m looking forward to utilizing these collars in Colorado, Idaho and Kansas. Keep posted as I learn how to employ the many features of these awesome collars!

In other blogger happenings, I wanted to tell my readers about my good friend Julian’s new blog. Julian is a true wordsmith and an awesome craftsman. Check out Julian’s woodwork and enjoy his writing!

Have a great Fall and remember that your bird dog’s safety should always be priority NUMBRE UNO!

See ya in the grouse woods…
