A new to me logging road lined with aspen looked very inviting.
These next three pictures are of Emma hunting. She is a joy to watch float through the woods. She hunts a nice pattern staying within bell range most of the time.
At one covert Emma brought me this woodcock barely alive. I don't know how she came upon it. When she first appeared with it I thought she had caught a hen on her nest, but it turned out to be a small male bird. Perhaps sick or injured I could only praise her for the retrieve she made.
