Emma and I headed to Huntingdon County to try our luck in the Brumbaugh Covert. A big thick bottom full of hawthorn, multiflora rose, and alders.
Not long into the hunt Emma showed what a good retriever she was by bringing in a woodcock still limp with a broken wing and leg.
The birds were there. Some were runners who flushed wild and others who held for Emma's points didn't give me a chance for a shot in the thick cover, until finally I connected with a left barrel on a bird who flushed in open cover. Back at the truck I took pics of the gun, bird, and tired dog.
