To my surprise she found a grouse and pointed for a few seconds, until it got the best of her and she pushed in for the flush. In my hurry to reach her before she broke I didn't get a pic of her point.
Something caught her attention here, but nothing was flushed.
Had hoped to be looking for woodcock by the last of February but the extended forecast looks like its going to stay cold for several weeks yet. Oh well, all good things comes to those who wait :) so guess I'll just have to wait for the weather and the woodcock.

I've been looking for a small dozer for the past year to combat the multiflora rose, barberry and greenbrier that are trying to take over my Back 40. I've looked at a couple dozers that had been "rode hard and put away wet" and then just the other day this little beauty fell into my lap.
It's a John Deere 1010, the smallest dozer JD made between 1960-1965. She's been shed kept all her life and has had a new undercarriage, carburetor, radiator, and hoses installed and had the lift cylinders rebuilt. Since I know nothing about dozers I had my wife's nephew, who has an excavating business look her over and pronounced her it very good condition. With her I'll be able create more room for my heirloom apple trees.
All I have to do now is learn how to drive her :).
