We found them in the thickest part of the covert.
The intensity of a point.
Back at the truck I reflected back on Copper's first trip to the Shawnee covert as a 7 month old pup pointing woodcock like a pro, and of a magical day when she was 3 years old and the Shawnee was full of woodcock and I took 3 birds over her intense points. It was the only time I've taken a full limit of woodcock and I'm glad I did on that special day. Now as she approaches her 9th birthday I know, as with Hattie, that her days are drawing to a close, but thank her for the wonderful memories that she has given me.
