Emma's Turn

Poor Emma has been sitting patiently in her kennel as I give Thicket all the woods time this spring. Yesterday she got her chance and made the most of it. I went to a new covert. It didn't look like much from the road and had driven by it for years. Yesterday proved that had been a mistake. We moved 7 woodcock in about 1 1/2 hours with Emma giving me 3 solid points, I flushing 2 birds, and 2 birds giving Emma trouble running and flushing ahead of her. It's a narrow hollow with a stream running up it with scattered large pine and barberry and multiflora rose beneath.

Here's Emma's points.

It was a wonderful day afield made extra special by the discovery of a new covert.
