The Annual Bird Hunt 2016

The Annual Bird Hunt 2016

As previously mentioned in my blog, every October, we venture out in to the fall woods for a weekend of small game hunting. The family hunting tradition continues this year with an extended hunt at the cabin and with some new team members.  The weather was mostly cooperative and the crisp fall air was a joy to breathe for a few days.   Our hunting adventures with Cedar were good afternoons out in the field.  Game for the Red-Tailed hawk is scarce up here, which is why you don’t find many of them the more north you travel.  Cedars’ afternoon hunts were successful in getting out, flying, and recalling to the lure.  This picture was from a new area we tried together. 

This year begins a new era in hunting on several levels.  There were some additional hunters in the field that hopefully will be part of the team for many years to come.  One of those new team members is ‘Kida’, our new German Munsterlander puppy.  This was her first exposure to the wilderness, our hunting expeditions, and wild birds.  After three days of consistent hunting, she recognized the  routine and truly enjoyed the experience.  While as a puppy, my expectations were exceeded by how well she did in the field.  Her recall is great and her nose and strength are very strong assets out in the field. I look forward to many more years of her partnership out in the field as she develops into a great hunting dog.
