I had a skipper doe just about step on me tonight. I watched her all the way down a small ridge that ended about 4 steps away....was starting to think I'd have to poke her with my rifle barrel...at 4 steps away I winked at her....OMG that deer came unglued....laugh...you could have heard me laughing all the way to endless brook road...
My brittanies are pissed off!!!! With deer hunting going on the boys have been laid off. Every day I get into my camo... the looks I am getting are worst and worst....I bet there are still woodcock around but I still have a 6 pointer in the back yard....yesterday there was a new scrap near the apple tree in the field. Please stay tuned!!

Woodcock season opened this Saturday October 9th 2010....We are finding birds and it seems that Grouse numbers are still improving year after year. Expect small flights of Woodcock in about 10 days. Local Woodcock may have had a problem this year with the HOT & DRY summer....please stay tuned I am hitting all my best covers today and tomorrow.
