Thoughts and pictures of my wanderings through the Allegheny Mountains hunting grouse and woodcock with my Ryman-type English Setters during the fall and winter months, fishing for smallmouth bass in local streams and rivers during the summer months and wandering over my 66 acres of heaven year round.
The leaf littered lane leading in the Doll's Head cover.
A view of the cover. Still thick with summer's vegetation. It will be thinning soon with the shorter days and cooler nights. Lots of food in the Doll's Head this year.
I couldn't pass up this shot of a toadstool to add to my toadstool collection.
This volunteer appletree always seems to produce a bounty of fruit every year.
Last April Emma and I ended the spring training season with a woodcock point. Four months later she points the first one she finds and puts a smile on my face.
A little later on she makes me smile again.
Waiting on the tailgate for the brier pulling that follows an early season training session.
Although this cover had plenty of food we couldn't find the grouse that are often found there, but Emma's two woodcock points after 4 months of tweety bird watching definitely got my "blood pumpin'" Come on October.
