End of Season
My last two trips afield have been fruitless as far as finding woodcock, but I realize that even as it starts in mid October the woodcock season is a fleeting thing. Emma and I had a banner year, at least in my mind, but Thicket is still a work in progress. I still have hope that she will come around and accept woodcock as a bird worth pointing. In a few short months the 'cock will be returning north and we'll be pursuing them with the camera. For now we have a two week resting period as deer season runs it's course, then we'll be off to the grouse coverts with the hope of finding a few birds that will hold for a point.
