A Walk Along Piney Creek
Took Thicket and headed for the Piney Creek covert on Monday. With the stream at spring flow I couldn't cross it so only walked the cover bordering the old dirt road that runs parallel with the cover.
I saw one woodcock flush ahead of her just after she entered the covert. I couldn't tell if she had bumped it or not. Later on I walked into two different birds. Thicket hunted the cover thoroughly but couldn't find any more birds. So we ended the day without any points but still it was a good day in the woods knowing the woodcock were moving north. Today (Wednesday) the temperature is holding at 27 degrees and the wind is blowing smartly. The forecast is for warmer temps next week so we will try again for the first point of the year.
