The Harrier Hawk Covert

Thicket and I took a preseason run yesterday through the Harrier Hawk Covert in search of woodcock.  A reclaimed stripmine with islands of aspen with a goldenrod understory and some spruce trees and autumn olive bushes scattered in. I found this covert last year and had several good hunts with Emma. Yesterday Thicket could only find a young turkey which she pointed handsomely. Once the flights start I hope this cover will again hold some woodcock.

The cover.

A happy dog.
Thicket's turkey point.

Back at the truck, tired but happy.
