TOMMY’S COVEY

TOMMY’S COVEY Every October, Brother Shawn and I get together for a week of hunting in the Idaho uplands.  To say we look forward to this every year is an understatement; we live for it!  We have less than two weeks before the Holy Jihaud on the Gallinations begins this year.  In contemplation of this…

My bird dogs are lying motionless on the bed next to me…plum worn to the bone. They cover hundreds of miles…

>Black Friday Nemesis OR Cantankerous Phookars!

>Chukars are my nemesis! They’re certainly not a gentleman’s bird by any standards. They run up hill just to turn around and jet right back to where you just came from. About the time you think you’ve got them figured out…they embarrass you again and again. Chukars are bird I love to hate! And the…

>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…
